24 Hours Later

Thank you so much to everyone that joined in the 24 hour step up challenge, your support and messages kept me going throughout! I absolutely loved all of your step up videos, they were creative, funny and inspiring.

It was a really long day but so worth it! I had a nice set up in the garden, I’m so glad it didn’t rain… The dark hours were the most difficult but I had a few phone calls to keep me going and I also had food brought to me throughout. I should do these 24 hour challenges more often!

The video below was put together of everyone that joined in, thank you Jonathan Fawke for creating the video. All of your donations have raised over £1800 for the NHS!

I worked for the NHS for a few years before joining the Army. A lot of my friends and previous colleagues still do, part of me feels sad I can’t be working with them right now. The other part, is incredibly proud of them.

My quote of the day is taken from Mother Teresa.

“None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.”

Stay safe everyone x 

Step up for the NHS

I was supposed to be dragging a tyre around London Marathon this weekend, which has now been postponed until October and so I was wondering if there is anything else I could do inside the house. I did consider burpees for 24 hours, luckily I was persuaded against that idea! What could I do inside the house which could also get other people involved? Step ups! I was quite proud of the title if you see what I did there..

I will be completing 24 hours of step ups to raise money for the NHS. The 24 hours will run from Fri 24 Apr 1400 to Sat 25 Apr 1400. I will be posting live updates every hour and possibly streaming it live. Keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram links (@polarpreet)

The aim is to get as many people involved as possible!

How to join in:

  1. Complete step ups in your own home for as long as you want and record it (time lapse or a short video)
  2. Post online and tag me (insta and Facebook: @polarpreet)
  3. Make a £5 donation to the JustGiving page:

Would love for as many people to get involved as possible!
