Thanks for taking the time to visit my #lunge365 page! This year I am raising money by Lunging an average of OVER 400m EVERY DAY of 2023 come what may!



I am undertaking this challenge for Epilepsy Action holding several people in mind, including one of the very best, who died from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).


I began Lunging daily on Jan 1st, incorporating variations such as stationary, walking, reverse, weighted, elevations etc, (with various DB's, Vests, Sandbags etc), in order to make this a truly epic undertaking!!! 

I am accruing a running total, so that in the unfortunate event of injury or illness, I am able to average out the amount to over 400 per day over the year, "Come What May".

I wanted to do something that would be an exercise in discipline, physically and mentally, requiring accountability and giving me a focus and goal that was perhaps a little different to fundraising efforts I have done in the past.

I hope you find the challenge to be something worth putting your hand in your (electronic) pocket for some metaphorical small change! It would mean a lot to me if you did, and help keep me going!

Thanks for reading, Gary
