Join us in making March 2021 a month of action, declaration and celebration!
We're taking action - embracing challenges of our own to show solidarity with young people who are taking on the challenges of a post-Covid 19 world. We're making a declaration of our support, by sharing our challenges online. We're celebrating the young people we work with and all that young people everywhere contribute to our communities.
Your challenge, your way
It's simple! Just think of a gold-themed activity you’d like to try and complete it! You might want to wear gold for a week, bake a Golden Syrup cake, walk a Golden Retriever, build a stack of Golden Wonder crisps, or attempt to beat a gold-medal-winning runner’s time. It's totally up to you!
As you'll create your own, unique challenge, you can Get Up and Gold anywhere, anyhow, anytime. Your challenge can be mental, physical or creative. You can start and finish whenever you like between 1st and 31st March. As long as you’re safe and socially-distanced, you can take your challenge in your living room, online, in the garden, at the park - wherever it works. It’s about you having fun, using your talents and imagination and making a difference. All you have to do is choose a challenge, pay £10 to register and sign up.

Share, share, share!
Once you've decided on your challenge, let us know what you're going to do. Share photos/videos on social media, tell people this is your act of solidarity and use #YPAreGold to highlight the value of young people and the role they play in creating a better future for us all.
We think you're a gold star - and we want the world to know it!
We want to tell the world that you're making a difference, so everyone who signs up will get a ‘Worth My Weight in Gold’ wristband. If you sign up to fundraise for us as well, you’ll also be awarded a specially designed, eco-friendly Get up and Gold medal!
