Challenge: 5000 hours of activity in 50 days

5000-in-50 is an international initiative to raise awareness for MRKH and started on May 5th and ending on June 24th 2021.

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 including our Wellbeing workouts led by Sunni and also the MRKH Journaling and Art Club.

We have collated 5 great prizes from across the MRKH community as well as giveaways and incentives throughout the event so keep following us for more
