Save the Children is calling on people to help set a world record for most people getting sweaty in a festive sweater.
On Friday 10th December, Mr Motivator’s Club will present the lycra legend himself, leading a virtual workout dressed in his finest festive knitwear to mark Save the Children’s 10th Christmas Jumper Day.
Save the Children and their Christmas Jumper Day partner Sweatcoin are hoping to recruit over 5,000 people in Christmas jumpers to join the virtual workout with Mr Motivator and, together, set a new world record. Never before will so many people have come together to get sweaty in a festive sweater.
Throughout the workout, Mr Motivator will encourage donations to Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day from a Text to Donate number and an onscreen QR code. Through contributions from participants and partner Sweatcoin, the tech for good health platform that rewards movement, Save the Children aims to raise £15,000. The money raised will help children in the UK and worldwide get the food, healthcare, and education they need to believe in a future where anything is possible.
To sign up for Christmas Jumper Day, all you have to do is upcycle, borrow or buy a second-hand festive sweater and visit christmasjumperday.org. Then, on Friday 10th December, head to the Game Plan for a day full of festive fun – with Mr Motivator’s workout starting at 12 pm.
Save the Children and Sweatcoin have crunched the numbers. If the charity hits its target of more than 5,000 virtual participants during Mr Motivator’s workout, they are set to rack up over a staggering 3 million steps combined. That’s the equivalent of walking from London to Santa’s Lapland!
