Black Dog Institute's virtual social connection challenge
While many of us are heading indoors, it is important that we keep mentally and physically active while staying connected with our friends and family.
So we are challenging you to create a virtual challenge over 14 days that gets your mind and body moving for all your friends to see (at a safe, physical distance).
Choose your challenge, step up, stay connected and support mental health research!
Ways to Get Involved
Dance Your Way
Get your Queen Bey on and strut to single ladies one day, master the most iconic Dirty Dancing routine the next! This challenge will transform your dancing skills from basic bedroom antics to becoming a Broadway superstar. Invite your friends and share them on your socials!
Sometimes you gotta go your own way. Create your own dance routine and invite friends to learn it over a 14 day period.
Bust a move and get groovy any way you want. Soon you will have your own virtual dance troupe.
Get Physical Your Way
Whether you’re working from home, off work or just keepin’ on keepin’ on, sign up to our physical challenge and get your very own virtual personal trainer for 14 days.
This challenge is all about realistic changes you could make to your daily routine to reduce inactive behavior and/or increase physical activity.
Even if you’re physically distancing, you can do this challenge with your friends. Sign up for 14 days and test yourself! This is all about staying connected so get your sweat on with your mates – wherever you might be!
