Updated: Nov 12
We want you to support the Level 5 Challenge. The level 5 challenge was created to encourage people to get outside and stay active during the level 5 Covid 19 restrictions. People around the world are experiencing feelings of despair and anxiety, we are seeing this first hand in our work with young people.
