Elev8 2021

NHSF (UK) is proud to present our new wellbeing initiative, ‘Elev8’!

Brought to you virtually, Elev8 hopes to get everyone active and engaged over the next few weeks. We’ll bring you a whole host of fun-filled challenges for the body and mind, each designed to get our bodies and brains running! 

What can you look forward to?

  • This is your opportunity to get fit and be active from home over the next few weeks! 
  • You can earn points for yourself and your Hindu Society with prizes up for grabs!
  • We will present to you 10 dynamic challenges over the course of 6 weeks!
  • It’s open to all – get involved with your friends and family!

Challenges include running, cycling, art, dance and many more. Keep an eye out for our bonus environment and mental wellbeing challenges. We’ll also be holding workshops so that we can all tackle the activities together. To conclude Elev8, we’ll be hosting a virtual closing ceremony where winners of each challenge will be announced.
