A Lent of record attempts
Wednesday 2nd March 2016
Fun fitness class company ‘Rabble’ is raising funds for us with a series of records it is attempting to break for Lent.
The challenges have been set by the general public and the Rabble team will do anything to support our charity, providing it ‘won’t lead to them being arrested, injured or going bankrupt!’ Now over three weeks into their fundraising efforts and over £400 raised so far, Rabble staff have been sharing footage of their challenges across social media.
The challenges include:
How much fruit can you eat whilst doing burpees?
- How many people can you kiss in 10 seconds?
How quickly can you escape from a roll of sellotape?
How fast can you run 100m in flippers?
After a near fatal cycling collision six years ago while training for the 2012 Olympics, Rabble founder Charlotte needed the help of Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance in saving her life. Since then she has supported the air ambulance sector in many ways, including cycling from Beijing to London in 2012 and challenging herself to give up wearing normal clothes for Lent last year.
London based Rabble was founded on recovery from Charlotte’s collision, out of boredom of boring exercise.
“Life is too short to do things you dread. It was time to bring back love to life, starting with exercise.”
Talking about the current challenge, she added: “The records are a celebration of life and aim to make people smile as well as remind people how great it is to be alive.”
