Run in a charity fun run
There are literally thousands of organised runs across the country ranging for 1 mile to a marathon and these are great ways of getting fit and set yourself a goal whilst raising money for deaf sport. They are usually easy to enter and then all you need to do is rally friend and family to sponsor you or get them to run to and also raise money for deaf sport. Of course it does not need to be an organised run, you can choose to run around the park, in your school field on the treadmill in the Gym, up and down the stair if you like, as long as you keep safe and get people to support you with sponsorship.
Why not link in the year of the next Deaflympics in Turkey in 2017. So you could climb 2017 steps or see how far you can run in 20m 17s.
Organise a baking competition and cake sale
You could get your friend and family to bake cakes and decorate them with the Deaflympic 2017 theme. As organiser you could judge the best one and then sell them off at a local fete and donate the money to UK Deaf Sport. Be careful though as too many cakes are not good for your health and you might have to go for a run to work off the calories J
It could be a group thing
Why not encourage your club, school or workplace to join in so that more people are raising the funds and you can enjoy doing something together. Things like lunchtime walks, dress down day, turn up in your sports kit or pedometer challenge where you can compete again other classes, department or teams in your area to see who can be the first to 201,700 steps.
