Click on any of the join buttons on the website. This will direct you to create an account. Once your account is created you will be taken to your won personal page where you can choose the teams you want to join and upload a picture of yourself (if you wish).
Everyone will be part of two teams. A regional team, which will typically be the area you live in, and a team for a hospital or organisation. If you are not affiliated with the NHS, you can choose to join one of the supporter's teams.
Once you have created your account and logged in the first page you will see has a form to enter your distance. All activities must be entered manually and require a date, activity type and distance (the challenge is being measured in km, but you can choose whether to enter in km or miles). Once the distance is logged it will update your team's totals.
Any activity which can be measured by distance counts, and it doesn't matter how short or long it is. Activities which were logged last year include:
Activities can be completed outside or indoors on exercise equipment. The activities can be things that you do as part of everyday life eg. Walking the dog, your daily commute (as long as it's not by car!) or taking children to school. However, we don't count steps that are done as part of your normal working day. We really want the challenge to get people out and about and doing exercise.
Your personal page will show the progress of the two teams you have joined. If you want to see more information you can click on the name of team and it will take you to that team's page.
You can also follow us on twitter at @Race4Recipients for regular updates and we will be sending regular emails throughout the week.
The best way to make your decision known is to record it on the NHS Organ Donor Register and tell your loved ones.
By taking part in this challenge or supporting your friends, family and colleagues, you are in a position to be able to encourage people to put their name on the organ donation register and find the time to talk to their family.
Here at R4R we encourage you to 'wear and think pink'! Post pictures of your distance travelled for the challenge all over social media with a link to join the register. Seeing your post may just encourage someone to take that actions and have the all important discussion with their loved ones.
You can do that via NHS Organ Donor Register, or via the NHS app in England, or by calling 0300 123 23 23. There are tips on the organ donation website which could help yourselves or others start the conversation with family.
Please share this messaging in your social media posts! https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/register-your-decision/
