2023 Crunch Challenge

One of our dedicated Crunchies was Ella, who got her entire community involved.

Earlier this year, Redkite held its annual 50 crunches a day in March challenge. 2,193 amazing people crunched their way through March to raise much needed funds for families facing childhood cancer. That means 109,650 crunches were completed over 31 days! Outstanding!

One of our dedicated Crunchies was Ella, who got her entire community involved. At the gym, the beach, and at home Ella and her team crunched away for Ella’s daughter, Sadie.

Sadie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in February 2020 at age three. Thanks to supporters like you, Redkite was able to be there for their family. Ella remembers:

“Redkite helped our family tremendously when Sadie got her diagnosis. It was 2.5 years of treatment, which meant countless hospital visits and stays. Some weeks it was a daily, two-hour round trip. Financial help from Redkite with fuel vouchers meant one less thing for us to worry about”.

Redkite would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who took part, your involvement ensures that families like Sadie’s are able to access support when they need it most.

Keep an eye out for future Redkite challenges!
