Fit4Good is an initiative developed in partnership with CANSA with the aim to raise funds for the care and support programmes offered at all CANSA Care Centres country-wide, with 100% of the funds raised going directly to CANSA.

The inaugural Fit4Good Challenge event launches on World Cancer Day, 4 February 2019. The challenge involves a corporate and peer-to-peer fundraising event with popular fitness activities where participants form teams with the option of riding a stationary bike or running on a treadmill to raise money as a community of contestants under one roof by cycling or running for a very worthy cause, uniting members of families, schools businesses and friends in the fight against cancer.

How Fit4Good works:

Step 1: Feb – March 2019 – Register your team to Cycle or Run

Become a team captain – create your team, then invite your friends, family members and colleagues to register and join your team. Teams must be no less than four and no more than eight riders per bike or runners per treadmill.

Step2: March to May 2019 – Raise money

Each team or corporate has a minimum fundraising requirement of R10 000. Each team’s ultimate goal will be to raise R50 000. (All funds raised go directly to CANSA.)

Step 3: May 2019 – Cycle, Run or Swim

Teams get the opportunity to either ride, run or swim in a relay – style format, sharing a stationary bike or a treadmill. Each session includes eight back-to-back 30-minute time slots. Teams decide on either splitting the total time of 4 hours into eight 30 minute time slots or individuals can challenge themselves and attempt more!

Team members take the slots or double-up the slots in the case of smaller teams. This enables the fit and not so fit to participate.
