Nightingale 200 for 200 Challenge

The Florence Nightingale Foundation needs you! 

We are looking for 200 heroes to take part in our #Nightingale200for200 Challenge from the 21st of October to the 4th of November when the Foundation will be marking Florence Nightingale leaving for and arriving at Scutari Hospital to care for injured soldiers during the Crimean War.

You can be a part of the challenge and celebrate Florence Nightingale’s bicentenary year by taking part in a sponsored activity that involves the number 200 and raises a minimum of £200. Money raised will support nurses and midwives who have been working tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This can be any activity you like – from doing 200 squats, running or cycling 200 miles in 20 days, lifting weights 200 times or doing 200 laps of your garden like Captain Sir Tom. If you’re feeling eager to get started you don’t have to wait for October and can complete your activity earlier – whatever works for you!

Are you up for the Nightingale 200 for 200 Challenge? – How to get involved

To take part, find your #Nightingale200for200 Challenge, create a fundraising page on JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving choosing Florence Nightingale Foundation as your charity of support, set your fundraising target and go!
