FAQS - 2,000 Squats in July

Could you do 2,000 Squats in July and help to raise funds for children with life-limiting conditions and their families?  

It’s a tough challenge, but it’ll help LauraLynn provide vital care, while keeping you healthy too!  

By joining the LauraLynn 2,000 Squats in July Challenge, you’ll be making an incredible difference to the lives of the children in our care.

We have created a Facebook Group of people like you who are doing this challenge. Join it to see how they’re getting on!  

Any questions? Take a look at the FAQs below, or email Cathy on challenges@lauralynn.ie

The challenge is to complete 2,000 squats throughout the month of July while fundraising for LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.

Not at all! The goal is to do the 2,000 over the month of July. It is up to you how you complete it.  

That’s easy! You can use the personal tracker in the leaflet which comes in your pack, just write down how many squats you do at the end of each day. Don’t forget to post in the Facebook Group too and let us know how you’re doing!  

As part of this challenge, you will be asked to set up a 2,000 Squats in July Facebook Fundraising Page for LauraLynn where you can post your squats daily. These pages are linked to LauraLynn and we’ll be able to see your progress.  

Visit https://www.facebook.com/fund/LauraLynnChildrensHospice/ and wait for the pop-up to set up a page. Be sure to go in and edit it after, you can change the title, goal and most importantly the end date to 1st of August so your fundraiser doesn’t end early.

Of course. Setting a goal of 2,000 and then exceeding that goal would be fantastic!

We suggest starting on July 1st and continuing throughout the month but if the timing doesn’t suit you then feel free to pick a time that does. 

You can register for your pack here: https://givp.nl/erf/tiNT6E7J

You should receive your fundraising pack in the post by the start of the challenge if you register before then. We are sending the packs out in large batches from the middle of June.  

An exclusive 2,000 Squats in July LauraLynn T-Shirt and a leaflet which will include a tracker for you to keep track of your squats on! 

Facebook Fundraisers are the easiest way for you to fundraise. It makes fundraising from home simple! The funds raised are lodged directly into our bank account and there are no fees involved. Alternatively, you can request a sponsorship card by emailing:  challenges@lauralynn.ie    

Unfortunately we can’t issue refunds through Facebook but people can request a refund themselves from Facebook by following the below steps:  

Send them this link: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/162031714239823  

Select - I donated to a fundraiser on Facebook  

Select - I want a refund for my donation(s)  

Select - I made a donation by accident and request the refund.  

If someone not on Facebook wants to donate, they should still be able to do so. Share the direct link of your fundraiser with them and they can enter their details. Alternatively there are two other options for them to support your fundraiser.   

  1. They can give you the cash or transfer you the funds (via Revolut, PayPalMe, Online Banking etc) and you can add the donation to your fundraiser yourself.   
  2. The can donate directly to LauraLynn via www.lauralynn.ie/donate. If they do this please ask them to put your name and 2,000 Squats in July in the message box so funds can be allocated correctly.  

You can absolutely complete this challenge as an organisation or work group. In fact, it is a great team bonding exercise and lots of healthy, competitive fun. Together with your colleagues, you can set up a Facebook Fundraiser and join our community to complete 2,000 Squats in July. It's simple to do and you'll be amazed at how many people will support you.
