Go Sober for October encourages people to go booze-free for the 31 days of October and raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Becoming a Soberhero might not mean you have X-ray vision or you get to wear a cape (although you can if you want to). But not drinking does mean you’ll gain many heroic qualities. You’ll be a money-saver, hone your will-power, increase your energy, boost your health and, most importantly, help to change the lives of people with cancer.
Staying off the booze (along with a few small improvements to your diet and exercise routine) can mean you develop new powers:
You’ll also look your best with clearer skin, have a clearer head (and gain a fresh approach to how you consume alcohol) and feel that warm glow of having completed something and helped change the lives of people with cancer. KA-POW!
It’s all in a month’s work for a Soberhero.
It almost makes you feel better just reading that list doesn’t it? So there you have it: having 31 gloriously hangover-free days will not only see you raise lots of money to help people with cancer, you’ll also be doing good for your own health.
Go Sober for October is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes. We would encourage people to drink responsibly and stick to the recommended daily guidelines for the rest of the year. We advise heavy drinkers or people dependent on alcohol to speak with their GP before signing up to Go Sober.
