As someone who has always worked from home pre-COVID-19, I know how difficult it can be to get your steps up. Some days I don’t even make it past 1,000 steps!
That’s why we are adapting Human and Hope’s virtual Walk to Cambodia so that you can still partake. If you are working from home, are in social isolation or just don’t want to leave the house, you can still get your steps up and make your health a priority, something that is critical in these uncertain times.
We are partnering with some generous fitness professionals to bring you free online classes that can be undertaken in the comfort of your own homes.
These classes include:
DanceDesk with Gwen Korebrits
Join Gwen Korebrits, the founder of the Dance Health Alliance, as she takes you through a 30-minute class that is tailored towards working from home. This class is suitable for all ages, and is very beneficial for those who want to stimulate their immune system and maintain positive mental health.
Zumba with Project EnKo
Exercise the mind, strengthen the body and lift the spirit with Project EnKo! Never danced before? No problem. Take everything at your own pace and just keep moving. Two things are a guarantee; serious sweat and smiles. These classes will be held twice-weekly.
Yoga with Eve White
Join Eve White as she leads us through therapeutic yoga classes. Eve believes in a world where everyone wakes feeling connected, which is exactly what you will feel with these classes.
Plus we are adding more classes to the mix very soon!
To access these free online classes that will run throughout the month of April, you must be registered for our virtual Walk to Cambodia. This virtual event will see participants collectively (but separately) walk the distance from Australia to Siem Reap, Cambodia whilst raising crucial funds for children’s education.
We are sad to say that the recent pandemic has hit Siem Reap and our funding sources hard and without these vital funds, our remarkable education programs for vulnerable Cambodians will not continue.
With businesses rapidly going bankrupt in Siem Reap and thousands losing their jobs, we need support from the Australian population more than ever.
For every $120 you raise, a child will receive a full year of education from a local teacher. That’s the amount of money you are going to save in a fortnight by making your lunch at home.
You can sign up for the Walk to Cambodia as an individual or a team. It’s a great way to connect with your team members and work towards a common goal. Not only will you have access to free online fitness classes, you will also receive:
- Badges that recognise key milestones
- Weekly emails with health tips
- Prizes for the most steps walked and best social media post
- Organised in-person social walks should we assess that it is safe to do so
Registrations close on the 29th March, so please encourage your team to sign up now!
