We answer your frequently asked questions

You can find answers to some of the most common questions below. If your question still remains unanswered, please use the contact page and we’ll be more than happy to help!


  • What activity can I do?

    Anything you choose! An online fitness class, a walk around the block or a spin on an exercise bike in your home are just some options. The challenge is a great opportunity to try something new everyday or work towards a new skill by the end of the 24 days, particularly when many people are working from home.

  • Do I need to notify Very Special Kids when I've done my activity?

    Not at all, we have trust in you! However, we would love for you to share your journey throughout the challenge – you can post updates and photos to your fundraising page, and if sharing on social media be sure to tag us and use #24daychallenge so we know what you’re up to.

  • What happens if I miss a day?

    It’s no disaster! Just jump back on the following day to complete as much of the challenge as you can.

  • Can I participate with someone else?

    We ask that participants follow government advice regarding outdoor activities, particularly with regards to social distancing. Why not try a FaceTime or Zoom call with a friend, following the same indoor workout? It’s a fun way to complete the challenge with the support from your teammates.

  • Will the 'normal' 24 Hour Treadmill Challenge be back in 2021?

    Absolutely! While the virtual 24 day challenge is a great interim solution, we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Very Special Kids for an even bigger and better event next year.
