1st February 2021
Dear bacta member
Today we are launching Miles for Smiles, an initiative designed to give us all some much-needed fun and exercise, as well as raising some money for the bacta Charitable Trust.
Miles for Smiles will take place during the months of February and March – ending on March 30. Members will be encouraged to log their exercise on our website (milesforsmiles.uk). Whatever type of exercise you take, from a walk in the park, a cycle outdoors or on a static bike, or even a session with Joe Wicks – it will be converted by the website’s algorithms into ‘Smile Miles’.
You can join a team of four – or enter on your own and we will report who is achieving the most miles, as well as logging how many miles we are all managing to achieve together. Everyone taking part is welcome to make a donation the bacta Charitable Trust, or encourage their employer to sponsor their team – however – we know times are tough, so if you can’t donate right now, don’t worry, but please join in!
Our very own Mr Motivator – Tony Glanville from RLMS, will be cheering us on and I will be taking part in a bid to get rid of some lockdown pounds. Coinslot and Coin-op Community will be reporting on our progress.
THE FIRST STEP TO TAKING PART IS TO CONTACT firstname.lastname@example.org WHO WILL ENTER YOU ONTO THE SYSTEM, FROM THERE YOU CAN USE YOUR PHONE OR OTHER DEVICE TO LOG YOUR PERSONAL MILES.
We hope you will join us in and together we can get fit and have fun with a little ‘healthy’ competition!
