Challenge: 5000 hours of activity in 50 days

5000-in-50 is an international initiative to raise awareness for MRKH and registration is now open!

Inspired by ‘Run for Heroes’ and other in-person ultra-challenge events that have had to be held virtually since the start of the pandemic, our collective challenge to participants is to contribute to the goal of completing a total of 5000 hours of activity, in 50 days in pursuit of raising awareness for MRKH.

This virtual event is set to challenge every individual who takes part, all of whom will be contributing to a collective target of activity whilst promoting their own physical and mental health and feeling a sense of community.

We have designed this event to make it as accessible as possible and there will be a range of activities to choose from under the following themes.  These have been made to be as broad as possible so there is something for everyone:

  • Fitness: running, cycling, walking etc
  • Wellbeing: meditation, yoga, pilates etc
  • Writing: Journaling, blogging, poetry etc
  • Arts and Crafts: painting, sketching, crafting

During the event we will have several community led sessions where participants can choose to join in with one of the many specific in challenge events planned and log activity together to help motivate and encourage each other.

We have collated prizes from across the MRKH community as well as giveaways and incentives throughout the event and you will be hearing more about those and our wonderful partners in the coming days and weeks – we are so excited to tell you more!
