Our ‘Move it with Dolia’ Challenge

As part of our #happyheads campaign, throughout July 2022, the Dolia team joined forces with Mental Health UK and took part in a series of month-long challenges to raise money for their national ‘Move It for Mental Health’ challenge.

We all picked our own individual challenges to complete which included running, press-ups, skipping, planking and sit-ups.

Matt: Running - 100 km
Joe: Press ups - 5000
Jess: Skipping - 6200
Alice: Running - 50 km
Oli: Plank - 90 mins
Katy: Plank - 60 mins
Rebecca: Sit ups – 3000

Our Achievements

It was quite tough at the beginning but with some moral support from fellow teammates checking in on each other, we all managed to push through and successfully complete our challenges.

We raised a total of £190 which went towards a national total of over £53,000 raised.

We received some nice feedback via Instagram from Johnston Connelly, the Senior Events Fundraising and Engagement Officer at Mental Health UK, who commented:

“I just wanted to say a big well done to you and the team at Dolia for completing your July Move It Challenge and raising a wonderful £190. Great job to all of you in the team – you should all be very proud of what you achieved! Thank you once again.”

The money we raised will help towards:

  1. Support groups for people experiencing mental health problems
  2. Providing advice to help people better understand and manage their mental health
  3. Information to help create easy-to-understand educational resources
