The Beat 120 Challenge

What is the Beat 120 Challenge?

Run, Walk or Hike as a team! Combine your mileage as a family to hit the 120 mile target and help us support more people affected by eating disorders.

Complete the 120 Challenge your way. Even if you’re in different parts of the country, family, friends and colleagues can log their miles on your personalised Just Giving page to help you reach your fundraising target. Together you can complete the challenge, offering hope and support for other families.

It’s completely up to you and your team to set the duration, you may like to complete the 120 Challenge in 30 days or two weeks. Set yourself a target date and go for it! We’re here to support you all the away.

How to get started

  1. Set up your Just Giving page.
  2. Personalise your page with your or your family’s story.
  3. Get your family, friends or colleagues adding their individual miles together to help reach your 120. For example, if a family of 5 walk 5miles, that’s 25 miles knocked off your 120 total!
  4. Keep sharing your Just Giving page to raise money and support more people affected by eating disorders.
  5. Make sure you tag us @Beateatingdisorders and use the hashtag #TheBeat120Challenge

How your fundraising makes a difference

Each year we support tens of thousands of people and their loved ones on their journeys towards recovery from an eating disorder. Your fundraising makes this possible – we simply could not do it without you.

  • £1,350 could host 120 web chats to support those reaching out to speak about their eating disorder for the very first time
  • £130 could send our supportive and educational carer packs to 120 families who have a loved one recently diagnosed with an eating disorder.
  • £30 could deliver 120 mins of online support groups, providing a friendly, safe and welcoming space where people can chat with others who understand what they’re going through.
