Sign up for #5kMay29 April 2021
This month, the creators of the 5k lockdown challenge, Run For Heroes, have launched a new virtual running event, #5kMay. Find out how to support Cardiff University research by participating in your own 5k this May.
5kMay is 2021’s version of the ‘Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5’ viral challenge which saw millions raised for charities. This year, participate in a 5k anytime between 1st-31st May. This 5k can be done anywhere, anytime with anyone. It can be run, rolled, walked, cycled or even swam…! It’s about getting out and feeling good – all whilst giving back to charity.
Once you’ve completed your challenge, donate £5 to Cardiff University neuroscience and mental health or cancer research.
The last part is to nominate 5 of your friends or colleagues to take part too, remembering to tag us (@CardiffUni) so we can share!
Those taking part will gain access to a goodie bag packed full of rewards and treats from some epic brands!
Many of our #TeamCardiff members signed up to run the Cardiff Half Marathon will be taking part, as a great first step to kick-start their training and fundraising.
