Exercise and help charities There are at least two organisations conducting fund raising programs that might interest those of you walking for exercise. Dementia Australia is raising funds via its Memory Walk & Jog 2020. You can choose to pledge your own kilometres, at a time and place that suits you. Getting active can be super easy. Walk around your local neighbourhood. Do a virtual workout. Keep active around the house by cleaning, gardening and keeping your steps up. https://www.memorywalk.com.au/ Kiss Goodbye to MS is raising funds via The May 50K. A virtual fitness and fundraising challenge which is highly interactive, The May 50K can be completed on your own anywhere in Australia, with minimal risk to others – even in the comfort of your own home, backyard or local park. https://www.themay50k.org/ So, why not choose whichever cause you want to support, register on their website and help them by getting people to sponsor you whilst you are walking for exercise?
