PANDAS 500

Did you know that PANDAS helpline calls range from around 300-500 calls per month? This is such an incredible achievement that we are able to help support this amount of users each month. But we need your help to continue to be there for another 500 callers next month. 

The helpline remains free for all callers from UK landlines and mobiles. but without support from donations and incredible supporters, this would not be possible. So we have set a challenge to raise £1250, which will support the helpline for one month. Can you take part in the challenge and complete something with 500 in? For each person who calls through to the helpline struggling with their perinatal mental health. 

Please do take part in our PANDAS 500 month! The challenge is to complete anything with 500 in This could be:

  • 500 laps around the garden.
  • 500 star jumps
  • Complete 500 good deeds 
  • Complete mini challenges set by friends or family
  • Run / walk / jog for 500 minutes over the month

The choice is yours! All you need to do is set up a fundraising page and you can start helping PANDAS Foundation. We would be so grateful for your support.

Signing up

To sign up, just click on the 'Register' button on this page, and you'll be taken through the process to register for the event and set up your fundraising page. The target is to complete anything with the numbers 2 and 5!

Logging your activities

The simplest way to track your progress is to sync with your Strava account, which you'll have the option to do when you sign up. Once you've completed this step, you need to record your walks and runs that you complete throughout the month. These will then automatically be added to your fundraising page.

Alternatively, you can simply click the 'Add an activity' button below your distance target on your page, and enter the details manually.

Share your fundraising page

Once you've registered, you'll be sent an email with the link to your own personal fundraising page. You can send that link out to friends and family, and there is also a tool on your page that will let you share your page or activities directly to social media.

Want to join or create a team?

You can join up with friends or colleagues to see how much you can raise together, or compete against other teams to see who can raise the most! When you register, you'll have the option to create a team, or find one that's already up and running, and you can join it. You can also do this later if you prefer. Once you've set up a team, you'll be given the opportunity to send an invite out to invite others to join you. You will all still individually have the same target in terms of distance throughout the month, but as a team you'll be able to see how much you've raised collectively.
