L4Life Village in Motion in July

Tuesday, June 23 2020

Run Melbourne will not be going ahead as we usually do this July, because it is a mass gathering. But we still want to bring our Village community together (while staying apart) and get moving during this cold and isolated winter. So instead, we invite and encourage you to join us with our challenge: L4Life Village in Motion.

2020 L4Life Village in Motion

This July, on the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th, we welcome all of our L4Life Village to get in motion!

Everyone in our Village, from all locations, at any age or stage, with varying abilities, can create their own in-motion challenge.

Step 1:

Pick your challenge (or challenges), whatever gets you in motion! Some examples are:

  • Walk, run, cycle or swim your chosen distance,
  • Have a dance marathon,
  • Climb some stairs,
  • Laps of your backyard or local park.

You can do your challenge at home, at the gym or out in the open spaces.

Take on your challenge by yourself, with a human buddy or a furry friend.

You may even choose to do one challenge on the 25th and a different one on the 26th.

Step 2:

Please share your in-motion challenge with us and our Village! We would love to see what you are all challenging yourselves with. Take a photo or video of your activities, during your training and/or on the 25th and 26th.

How you can share your photo/video with us:

  • Tag us on Facebook: @L4LifeAutismCentre
  • Tag us on Instagram: @l4lautismcentre
  • Tag us on Twitter: @L4LAutism
  • Hashtag your social media post with #L4LifeVillageInMotion
  • Email marketing@learningforlife.com.au

Step 3:

You may like to include a fundraiser as part of your Village in Motion challenge. For details on how to do this, please click here for full instructions.

The Run Melbourne event is going ahead in two ways for 2020:

  • There will be a virtual Run Melbourne on the dates as planned, 25th and 26th July. If you had already registered for Run Melbourne 2020, registration to the virtual event is free. If you hadn’t already registered, participation will be $15. Click here for details about the virtual event.
  • The main event has been postponed to November (dates and further details have not yet been announced). We had already planned two main L4Life events to take place in November; our Lunch With Kitty and the Golf Day will keep us busy for that month, so considering the circumstances, unfortunately we will not be organising a Team L4Life to participate in Run Melbourne 2020. You can still sign up to participate and fundraise for L4Life, and we will be there to cheer you on! Click here for details about the Run Melbourne event.
