MOVE FOR MENTORING
We’re spending a lot of time at home right now – which is a good thing – but we need to keep moving, keep active, keep buys and keep motivated. Why not MOVE FOR MENTORING?!?! This is a simple and fun way to make a difference in our community! Challenge yourself (and each other) to be active while raising pledges to support the young people here in Oxford County. Throughout the month you complete your challenge based on the amount of money you raise. For example, you will do one jumping jack for every dollar you raise (25 jumping jacks for $25 raised), 5 burpees for every $5 raised, or you could knit one wash cloth for $10 raised or read a chapter of a book for every $20 raised. You can record yourself completing your challenge or just after you finished your challenge letting everyone know you’re Moving For Mentoring to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oxford County – and why not challenge others to join you! Get active, have fun and help to ignite the power and potential of young people in Oxford County!
