50 Challenges Before I’m 50

The Plan

Hello…..my name is Mike Pierrepoint aka Pip

It was my 49th Birthday on the 6th Sept 2018 so heres what Id like to do before I am 50. The aim hopefully is to raise some money for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) see www.thecalmzone.net which is the charity that is trying to prevent male suicide. Most of you know that I lost my best mate Adam to this very thing a few years ago which is why this means a great deal

to me



So I want to ask people for ONE challenge each please and I will

endeavour to complete 50 challenges before my 50th



It can be something simple, something funny or it can be a test of endurance or fitness or bravery - but please be creative and give it some thought. Please also bear in mind I have a titanium knee so for instance running a Marathon or anything that will impact the knee will not be possible for me.



I will be choosing the 50 challenges BUT there is ONE CONDITION

Whatever challenge you set YOU WILL BE DOING THE CHALLENGE WITH ME. So before you challenge me something daft like run naked somewhere…..no problem as long as YOU are by my side

It may be something you have always wanted to do but never dared to…so lets do it

So…please think carefully about what you would like to challenge me



I realise some challenges I can raise money with, and some maybe just fun or daft to do instead,  

but either way I want to raise as much money as I can and have a good laugh with you all while completing this

This website will keep you updated with the challenges throughout the year
