Orbis is setting the challenge - Run (or walk) for at least 20 minutes daily across 20 days in May. 

Starting on 01 May 2024, we challenge you to get out running or walking for at least 20 minutes per day. Can you reach 20 sessions?

The beauty of Run 20/20 is that you have flexibility and control – run where you want when you want! Compete against your colleagues and other participating companies and challenge yourself.   

Once registered, you will be invited to join a private Strava group where your activity will be tracked. At the end of the challenge, we will announce two winners: the person who travelled the farthest and exercised for the longest and the company that travelled the farthest will win an exciting prize. Stay tuned!

After you register, a fundraising page will automatically be set up for you. Each participant is asked to raise €250. Your donations will go towards Orbis's sight-saving work in southern Ethiopia, where we fund surgeries, antibiotics and training to eliminate trachoma, preventing people from going needlessly blind. We work alongside eye teams in communities to provide training and guidance to leave a long-term eye care legacy that will restore vision for generations to come.

You will support people like Tadelech, a 54-year-old woman who travelled to her local Health centre in rural Ethiopia as she was suffering from the pain and discomfort of trachoma. Every blink was a step closer to blindness. She could no longer cook for her children and had become increasingly dependent on them. But, thanks to supporters like YOU, that all was about to change!
