The purpose of the health and wellness initiative is to encourage people to engage in an activity they love regardless of their abilities. All with the aim of supporting the mental and physical health of those in facilities management.
This year, to open up to more inclusive opportunities, participants can opt to complete any activity they wish, and the criteria is fully open to each participants own interpretation. It could be walking, cycling, swimming, yoga, sudoku, skydiving, crossword, gaming reading, singing, performing, or anything else.
There are 150 free medals available for this virtual event on a first come, first served basis. Participants will be invited to complete their activity anytime between 1 October 2023 and 30 November 2023. They will then submit their completion to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll receive a free medal for their achievement in the post.
Chris Barnes, who originally came up with the concept, commented: “We are delighted to once again launch FM10, an event that celebrates the spirit of inclusivity and encourages everyone to embrace their unique journey to wellness. We believe in the power of inclusion and that every step forward is a remarkable achievement. Our event is open to all, where your chosen activity is your path to achievement. Join us in breaking down barriers, because not all disabilities are visible, and strength comes in many forms. Let’s create a community where everyone is celebrated, where every effort is appreciated, and where together, we forge a path to greater health and happiness. Together, we are stronger.”
