CAFI 5K CHALLENGE
What is it CAFI 5K challenge?
CAFI 5k challenge is part of our flagship yearly fundraising event 'Walk for India'.
Due to the lockdown resulting from Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, we had to make some adjustments to Walk for India. That is how 5k challenge was launched.
Participants walk/run 5km, share it on social media with the hashtag #cafi5kchallenge, tag at least 5 friends to take up this challenge and donate a minimum of £10.
Are you interested? The following are further details:
Step 1: Walk/Run for 5km i.e. 6561 steps. You can do this in your living room, garden or outside as long as you are adhering to the social distancing guidelines. Make sure you download an app to track your distance (for recommended apps, see below)
Step 2: Post your walk/run on social media. After you have completed the challenge, post a screenshot of the 5km distance recorded in your distance app tracker on facebook with the hashtag #cafi5kchallenge21
