How it works
Follow these simple steps and you’ll be on your way to raising money for vital research in no time!
1. Decide what you are going to quit.
Say choco bye-bye: if you give up your £1 bar of chocolate each day, you’ll raise £30 at the end of your challenge
Cut out the caffeine: if you cut out your £3 latte each day, you’ll raise £90 at the end of your challenge
Bin the booze: if you say no more £5 bottles of wine on a weekend (that’s Friday, Saturday and Sunday) for 4 weeks you’ll raise £60
2. Set up your Just Giving or Facebook fundraising page
Set yourself a target and share it with your friends and ask them to donate
3. Keep an eye on your inbox
Look out for our emails which will give you helpful tips and motivation
Why Quit for Bit?
People with kidney disease often find that changes to eating habits can help lower blood pressure, slow down your loss of kidney function and reduce risk of heart attack and stroke. Check out our Get Kidney Fit booklet for information.
Taking part is a great way to kickstart a change to your naughty habits after the festive period.
Get your nearest and dearest to take on the challenge with you. Create a bit of friendly competition or keep each other on track throughout the month.
To keep research going
The money you raise will lead rapid change towards a world where lives aren’t limited by kidney disease. You can help end kidney disease.
