is Moving for our Mates at Centacare!

I'm raising funds for my mates Centacare!

Not one to back away (or skip) a challenge, I'm challenging myself to Move for my Mates at Centacare throughout October.

My movement of choice.... skipping - 50,000 skips to be exact! I haven't skipped since Jump Rope for Heart days, so this could get interesting!

I'd love your support! Donations over $2 are tax-deductible and if you donate $75 (or more) I'll film and share a skipping session in fancy dress (costumes TBC).

Now more about my Mates at Centacare. For over 30 years, they've provided services to people with a disability from their factory in Belmore. But they desperately need to repair their worn-out kitchen, re-paint, re-wire and repair old plumbing, and convert the warehouse into training rooms. All with the aim of enhancing and enriching the lives of people with a disability.

I'll keep you updated on the skip count - and my struggles along the way but I would really love your support! Please sponsor me (and my mates) and show your support for Centacare, a place that brings so much joy people living with a disability!

My Updates

DAY 31: 0 skips to go!

DAY 29: 361 skips to go

DAY 23: 10,510 skips to go

Day 21: 14,510 skips to go

Day 20: 16510 skips to go

So it's been a few days between updates but the skipping hasn't stopped. Thanks to a kind tip regarding the length of my rope, the sessions are getting much easier. Saying that the repetitive actions are taking their toll on my knees... lucky there's only 16 thousand skips to go :)

Day 14: 29,667 skips to go

Two weeks in and I'm starting to enjoy the repetitive process of skipping... almost as much as I enjoy a good graph Ü 

Day 10: 34,792 skips to go

Day 8: 37,620 skips to go

Day 5: getting ahead

5 days down and I'm happy to say I'm ahead on my daily count - mainly because my calves are too stiff to tackle any type of stairs.

TOTAL SKIPS: 9058
REMAINING: 39,942

I have another fancy dress day coming up thanks to Neil, I wonder how many costumes I'll need for the rest of the month?

DAY 3: 44,575 skips to go

Day 2: easier than day 1

Day 2 done and 3,410 skips under my belt. My calves are stiff and my abs (who knew I had some) hurt with each step.... But it's getting easier ?

Onwards and upwards!

Day 1 : only 49,493 skips to go!

Ready to skip

I bought a rope - that means I'm ready...right?

Well, I tested out the rope tonight with about 25 skips and managed to hit myself in the head 6 times. With 2000 times that amount of steps to complete in October, I'm feeling a little nervous, to say the least. I assume skipping in a helmet isn't the most comfortable way to tackle 50,000 skips!?

Anyway, that's it from me today. Tomorrow is the big day. I'll do my best to keep the page up to date. Remember, fancy dress will be donned for donations of $75 and above.
