No matter what challenge you chose, please be sure to:

  • Select a challenge that is safe and will not cause harm to you or others.
  • Share your challenge with your friends, family & co-workers both in-person and via social media.  It's easy to back out of a challenge when no one knows about it but when you share with your friends, you've now got a support group to help you and hold you accountable for achieving your goals.      
  • Document and share your challenge and progress via videos, tweets, posts, pics & even GoPro!  Tag your social media updates with #DoTheLifeThing so we can help share your success.
  • Continue to remind people of your challenge and that you need their help!
