Get Active with Rockinghorse this January

With the current health crisis impacting on every community, looking after ourselves has never been more important. Traditionally gyms and fitness classes are packed in the New Year but this January many will be closed or greatly restricted, so you may be wondering how you will be able to work off that festive over-indulgence.

That’s where Rockinghorse Children’s Charity can help, and in turn you can help us continue our work supporting sick and disabled children across the entire county of Sussex, plus be in with a chance to win an overnight stay with breakfast at the Hilton hotel in Brighton.

We’re asking all our supporters to join our four week Get Active with Rockinghorse campaign during January, to get moving, feel better and help support, amongst others, the Royal Alex Children’s Hospital, The Trevor Mann Baby Unit, the Special Care Baby Unit and Chalkhill Mental Health Unit. The campaign is kindly sponsored by Victoria Healthcare Management who are also donating 20% of net commission back to Rockinghorse when taking up one of their policies and quoting the reference COTY21.

Sign up

The cost of entry is just £15 with 100% of this fee coming directly to Rockinghorse. Places are limited to sign up today to get your place and get active and sign up here.

Start fundraising

In order for us to continue funding essential children’s health services throughout the county, we are asking you to fundraise a minimum of £100 during this challenge. All you need to do it to set up your Just Giving page when registering and you will receive dedicated support and ideas from our Challenge Events Fundraising Manager.

Get started and log your activity

Once you’ve registered, you just need to log all your activity on the app or website and the system will do the rest! Any kind of activity counts: running, walking, cycling, swimming, online/offline classes, weights, dog walking, Joe Wicks, treadmill, anything except being sedentary!

Even walking along the beach with the family or to the pub counts. Remember you can Get Active with Rockinghorse anywhere in the world! Don’t forget to share images on Instagram and twitter using the hashtag #GetactivewithRockinghorse and tagging us in at @rockinghorse67. The person with the most inspiring/exotic photo will win a bottle of champagne. Check the leader boards and get the friendly, competitive banter going!

Collect your medal

Once the challenge is completed, you can collect your fabulous Rockinghorse Medal to cherish forever and remind you of what you have achieved.

This isn’t about being the fittest or the fastest, it’s simply about moving more for four weeks to reap a long list of wellbeing benefits including increased energy, better concentration and a happier mood.


As well as the prize for most inspiring photo, we are offering a grand prize of a 2-night stay with breakfast at the Hilton Hotel in Brighton (to be used by December 2021) for our top fundraiser.

We are also offering the following prizes for the top three most active participants.
