During lock-down, times were tough and the AKO team created a challenge of walking, running, and cycling during the whole of May and keeping one another motivated to see how far the miles we accumulated.

We hit a total of 1,147.04 miles which on the map would take us from Uxbridge to nearby Rome!

We would like to thank the generous donations as we hit our target of £1000! This kept us motivated.

As a small charity, funding is scarce and we would be ever so grateful if you could donate to us: Click here to donate

I am a rather porky human and rarely get time to exercise at all. It was fun and a little competitive between us as a family. 

It also gave me a good reason to see how little I exercised of late and I truly believe as a family we will continue the walking ….

When I learned I was taking part in our walk/run/cycling challenge I was filled with dread as walking isn’t my thing as usually I’m more fast paced and want to be somewhere instantly.

I didn’t go every day like some of the others but I have to say that after a month of taking part I’ve really enjoyed spending quality time with Lucy and discovering places that I didn’t know existed.

We’ve discovered a beautiful field nearby with free roaming horses, a fascinating train footbridge where I did a TikTok stair challenge video, the lovely Burnham Beeches and many other lovely walks. 

I am so proud of Lucy taking part, we had one walk of over five miles and she is only eight years old.

Wow, I am so happy with how well the AKO Challenge went for the month of May 2020 in Lock-down.

Everyone participated with walking, running and cycling….. I set myself a personal challenge and then Taylor joined me, we decided to walk over 10,000 steps each day for the whole month and succeeded!

It’s been good for the body and mind and I am really proud of all of us plus raising over £1000 for our charity is the cherry on top!

I found lock-down hard I’m used to being extra active.  

The walking was great as it also gave us chance to be together and still feel a part of the team

This has been such an uplifting experience on so many levels. Anna Kennedy Online means so much to me, so this has been such a wonderful way to support the work the charity does.  

The camaraderie and the fun with all the team throughout the month has given us a purpose and focus to keep the charity going in these very difficult times. 

Thank you to all my family and friends that have supported us all with encouragement and donations.

We spent May doing our own AKO challenge whilst in lock down!

We walked / cycled / ran as far as we could each day, clocking up the miles, whilst keeping active, fit and raising money at the same time. We had so many fabulous and positive comments across social media, motivating each other along the way to keep going the extra ‘mile’.

Great for our personal health, raising funds, and so importantly; this was a way of improving mental health and well-being during mental health awareness month along our ‘virtual travels’ !

I found the lock-down so hard as it was not in my routine so having a whole month of a routine to do this helped me.

I also like to give back so this let me do two things at once.  I also done dancing to help rack up some miles

The AKO Challenge was a great motivator and loved the team work that kept us all going.

This gave opportunity to focus away from the pressures and was a great incentive to tear ourselves away from realms of paperwork.

Adrijana and I socially distanced ourselves during one walk together, we discovered new places on our doorstep and we had an adventure in getting lost and accidentally trespassing on a golf course – we laughed throughout this short time together.

As close friends, it was just what the Doctor ordered and we will always cherish our friendship which has grown over the last decade but even more through our adventures in AKO.
