Story

This spring we are encouraging our 'Fitta Mammas' to improve their health, whilst supporting the health of women around the world.

Every mother should be able to feel excitement not fear at the birth of their child. But too many women are dying needlessly in childbirth because they do not have access to the medical care they need to give birth safely. Expectant mothers can walk over 5km to see a health professional. Some even give birth to their children on the journey.

Support our charity partner It Takes a Village and walk, run or cycle 5km. Need a bigger challenge? Commit to 10k or a half marathon and motivate yourself, improve your fitness and help other mums.

Together we can raise money to train health professionals to spot danger signs in pregnancy, provide emergency transport for mums in labour and support health facilities with lifesaving equipment.

How to take part?

Simply challenge yourself to walk, run or cycle 5km, 10km or a half marathon and motivate yourself, improve your fitness and help other mums. You can decide whether to complete the challenge outdoors or use a treadmill or static bike.

1. Press the 'Start fundraising' button and select 'Fittamamma's Virtual Challenge' as your event.

2. Donate £10 to your own page to enter.

3. Ask friends and family to support you in your challenge by donating to your page.

4. Upload a picture to Instagram and tag @weareavillage and @fittamamma to prove you've achieved your goal.

When is this Virtual Challenge taking place?

Choose a convenient date between February 1st 2019 - Sunday 26th May

As a special thank you for taking part in this challenge, each mum will receive:

- AND will be entered into a prize draw to win a Fitta Mamma slogan top, a pair of Fitta Mamma Capris, a bottle of Borrago non-alcohol spirit and a selection of Childs Farm products. The lucky winner will be announced on Friday 31st May!

Together, lets make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
