Hi, and welcome to the “5k a Day in May” community challenge. My name is Jen and I’m looking forward to sharing my 31-day adventure in the great outdoors with you. These adventures will be scattered with picturesque landscapes along the many beaches, footpaths, boardwalks, trails, rainforests, lakes, forests and residential areas in our local communities.
The main focus of this challenge is to raise awareness for the importance of Brain Health and the prevention of dementia and Alzheimer’s in Australians as young as 40.
Witnessing my mum’s daily struggle with this incurable illness has sparked an incredible passion in me and is the reason why I’m motivated to create a movement towards the importance of Brain Health.
This challenge hopes to span the globe in an attempt to destigmatise the current preconceptions of Dementia/Alzheimer’s and other diseases related to cognitive decline.
Join the Challenge
I would love for you to join me as we supercharge our brains for 31 days of healthy adventures.
Your 5k can be made up of:
- Running/jogging (great to do solo or with friends)
- Walking (great to do with partner/kids)
- Riding (5/10/20/30/40/50k)
- Swimming (join a squad)
- Surfing 5 waves a day (Knarly)
So let’s kick start our month long adventure by committing to this challenge together. Our brains will thank us for it.
Your gift of brain health starts here.
