Lamp want to encourage you to get active during mental health week to better your mental health and increase your wellbeing by taking part in a 5k activity of your choice. Walking, running, rolling or cycling may be the most common forms of exercise but feel free to be creative. Swimming, rowing or even a simple dog walk may be your thing; or how about combine three activities together over the week for a Lamp Triathlon or doing an activity in fancy dress.

Why not make it a 50km!?! Not only will this distance help us to achieve our target of 384,400KM during the week, it makes for a perfect and challenging fundraiser. If distance isnt your thing, how about a 5k in a space themed costume?
