My story

[p]The countdown to [url=https://lgbtyouth.org.uk/purplefriday][b]Purple Friday[/b][/url] is on. [i](check out our video above)[/i][/p][p]While we can’t be together celebrating in person this year, our staff are gearing up to take part in an epic virtual team challenge: the [b]Pass The Torch Relay[/b]![/p][p]Our team have pledged to complete a total distance of [b]3,500km[/b] and raise [b]£3,500[/b] this February. [/p][p]They’ll be doing a mix of walking, running, cycling, open-water swimming (yes, you’ve read that right!), rowing, roller-skating, VR boxing, strength and weights training, Les Mill workouts and hiking to reach their goal.[/p][p]2020 has been a challenging year and the ongoing restrictions are tough on our mental health and wellbeing. [b]The Pass The Torch Relay[/b] is a brilliant opportunity to get active and beat the lockdown blues, whilst building up our spirits and giving us something fun to focus on as a team.[/p][p]All money raised will support our life-changing youth work services. We have supported young people via our [url=https://www.lgbtyouth.org.uk/news/2020/research-release-the-impact-of-digital-youth-work-at-lgbtys/]trailblazing[/url] ‘Pride & Pixels’ online community on Discord throughout the pandemic, and with your help we will continue to do so.[/p][p][b]Thank you for supporting us![/b][/p][p][img]https://www.lgbtyouth.org.uk/media/2276/staff-challenge-collage.png[/img][/p]
