At the beginning of the pandemic Run for Heroes, the infamous 5K running challenge, brought more than a million people together – a fantastic fundraiser as well as a viral fitness motivator asking participants to run 5, donate 5 and nominate 5. Following on from the success of the original fundraiser, the nation is once again being encouraged to get active this May – and we have partnered with Run for Heroes encouraging the community to sign up, have fun and support record numbers of homeless men and women at the same time.
5kMay, as the name suggests, is a whole month all about getting fit and hitting that 5km target. It’s not just about running though – participants could walk, roll, skip or even swim 5k if they wish! All that matters is getting your body moving and raising vital funds for people in need.
