Challenge 335 FAQs
Challenge 335 is a new multi-option fundraising campaign from N.I Chest, Heart and Stroke. The name represents the 335,000 people currently living with a chest, heart or stroke condition in Northern Ireland.
The 5 options are:
Get Active – walk 335,000 steps or 33km over 31 days. You can choose to run, cycle, swim or hop the distance. Do 31 days, your way!
Get Baking – bake 335 sweet treats during August and sell them to family and friends or deliver sweet treats to your neighbours. You can also send them as gifts to people who are still self-shielding.
Get Crafting – knit, sew or crochet 335 of your favourite designs and sell them to your network. If you want to keep on theme, you could make hearts and you can find patterns on our Get Crafting page.
Get Donating – donate the money you saved during lockdown or have a clear out. Sell your unwanted goods on sites such as eBay and or Gumtree and donate a share of your profits.
Get Extreme – this one is not for the faint hearted! Challenge yourself to complete 335 sit ups, press ups or burpees in 1 day and ask people to sponsor you to sweat! Once you have completed the challenge, you can donate to nominate the next victim!
Absolutely. You can take on Challenge 335 at any time. Make sure you get in touch and let us know when you are planning your event so we can offer as much support as you need.

Great news! You can now create your own unique online fundraising page through our website.
Simply fill in the form here to sign up (you will need to register an account on our website if you haven’t already) and select ‘yes’ to ‘Do you want us to create your online fundraising page so you can collect donations online?’.
When you fundraise or donate via our website rather than another online giving platform, there will be a smaller service fee charged on your donation, which means more of your money will go directly to support our services.
