The KSS Squat Challenge 3100 this March

Complete 3,100 squats throughout the 31 days of March to help raise vital funds to support our life-saving charity.

There can be many health benefits in completing squats as part of your exercise routine, including building lower body strength and core, burning calories and helping you to lose weight. And the great thing is, all of this can be achieved in the luxury of your own home or garden. For a more in-depth look at the benefits of squats, please click here.

 

What is it?

Squat Challenge 3100 is our new, virtual fitness event, challenging you to complete 3,100 squats throughout March. You can complete the challenge in a way that works for you and your level of fitness.  If you are already doing squats as part of your exercising then 100 a day might seem achievable, but for those of you who may be new to the challenge, it might be a gradual build-up and a few rounds a day. 

The beauty of the challenge is about doing what feels right for you. You could squat whilst watching the TV or whilst waiting for the kettle to boil. You may choose to complete them over Zoom with a friend to keep you motivated or have a group competition to see who can complete them first.

The best thing about the challenge is every squat completed and every pound raised will be helping to keep our life-saving service running.

How will your fundraising help?

We’re an independent charity and it costs over £15 million a year to sustain our world-leading, cutting edge, innovative service. Amazingly 88% is donated and raised by the incredible people of Kent, Surrey and Sussex, who go above and beyond to donate and raise funds for us. Thanks to you, we can be there 24/7 for the most critically ill and injured people in our regions, in their hour of need.

2020 has been an incredibly challenging year but together we’ve been able to continue delivering vital care across our regions.

Take part in Squat Challenge 3100 this March and help us to be there for more people like Jim Hardwick who suffered a life-threatening accident in 2015. We urge you to watch his story here to understand just how big of a difference fundraising makes.

 

To put your fundraising into context:

  • £5 could buy an oxygen-activated Blizzard heat pad, which helps to treat patients with hypothermia or in shock and protect them from the elements.
  • £30 could buy a set of defib pads to help resuscitate someone during a cardiac arrest.
  • £80 could buy protective footwear for one of the crew.  It is not always possible to land beside the casualty.  Our crews need to be able to get from the helicopter to the casualty to help anyone at any time, whatever the weather, so the right boots are essential.
  • £125 could buy one unit of blood, which enables us to treat patients with life-threatening injuries at the scene and on the way to the hospital.
