We are challenging our leisure club members and friends to take part in the BHF Dechox and give up chocolate for 1 whole month!
What is DECHOX?
DECHOX is a nationwide sponsored challenge to give up chocolate for March and raise money for life-saving heart research.
Any sort of cocoa is a no-no, which means chocolate bars, sweets, treats, biscuits, ice cream, cake – and even the chocolate sprinkles on your cappuccino – are off limits during March.
Over the last two years, nearly 40,000 people have taken on the challenge to chuck the choc and raise money to fund world-class researchers.
So, if you’ve ever found yourself sneaking a cheeky chocolate bar after the gym or digging into your desk drawer for an afternoon cupcake, then now’s the time to test your willpower, have fun and feel good in the process.
And if chocolate isn’t your thing, why not give up something else or challenge yourself to take on an ultimate DECHOX – not only is chocolate off limits, but all sugar is too!
If you would like to join us, speak to a member of staff or join our Facebook group. The Facebook group will be a chance to share your thoughts, offer advice and support to your fellow dechoxers. You don’t have to set up your own sponsorship page, simply share the link for our Eynsham hall page.
But of course, if you love your chocolate too much, you can always join in by sponsoring our team on the link below.
UPDATE - We raised an amazing £160 in total for the British Heart Foundation. Well done and thank you everyone who took part, donated and sponsored.
