Encourage your work colleagues to get active and fundraise for charity
Finding a physical activity challenge that is worthy of sponsorship, but is also accessible to the majority of employees is a challenge in itself, until now...
Workplace Virtuathon is an eight-week programme that cumulates in a 'virtual' physical activity challenge event that is designed to maximise employee participation, especially beginners and the less active, and help maximise fundraising opportunities in the workplace.
Inspire, educate, motivate.
You set the date of your Workplace Virtuathon and our easy-to-follow eight-week, fitness, lifestyle and employee wellbeing programme is delivered daily via the Get Event Fit mobile app to guide, educate, inspire and motivate employees throughout their programme.
Participants receive exercises with videos, fitness education articles, yoga videos, nutrition education, healthy eating recipes, positive mindset advice, meditation, wellbeing advice, health articles and much more, to encourage positive, healthy habits long after their Workplace Virtuathon is complete.
Employee wellbeing education
We've collaborated with Health@Work to align our programmes with standards set by the Workplace Wellbeing Charter and the Government's suggested Five Ways to Mental Wellbeing; Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give.
Participating employees are taken along a guided journey to help them understand the impact of diet, stress, mindset and physical activity on their health to encourage positive lifestyle choices, both in and out of the workplace.
The 'virtual' challenge
The eight week programme cumulates in a 5K or 10K 'virtual' challenge event as a walk, jog or run, but there's no actual event to organise as participants can complete their Workplace Virtuathon at any location – in the local park or on a treadmill – individually or with colleagues and at their own pace, so it’s ideal for beginners.
Incredible fundraising potential
Workplace Virtuathon is perfect for fundraising because even though participants walk, jog or run their final 5K, they will have actually travelled the distance of a full marathon throughout their eight-week programme! Participants who choose the 10K will have travelled two full marathons!
A fabulous story and incredible achievement to encourage sponsorship and donations for your charity or good cause.
Additionally, if you use your Workplace Virtuathon as fundraising initiative then we'll donate 10% of the cost to your chosen charity.
Deliver your own Workplace Virtuathon this year to raise vital funds for your favourite charity whilst also inspiring a healthier, happier and motivated workforce.
