In 2017, the participants of this initiative helped raise $595,406(about AU$745210). With this amount the total sum of all the money raised during these past three years is around $1,002,419(about AU$1254627). “So proud of everyone and all your achievements,” Heughan wrote. Now, the actor is looking forward to another exciting year.
And if you want to be part of this movement, the period for pre-registration for the year 2018 is now, Heughan has announced. The actual program launches in February. The program lasts 12 months during which they get access to support like nutrition plans and integrated training.
My Peak Challenge is not just an initiative for people to reach their fitness goals. The program can help people achieve any goal, whether it’s a making new friend or writing a novel. The idea is to have a goal and start working towards it. Participants also have an advantage as they can meet people with the same goals and mindsets.
Heughan is currently busy with filming the newest season of the insanely popular time-traveling drama series “Outlander.” Each year the actor manages to spare some time to post videos about the initiative, despite his busy schedule. He shares things like him working out in the gym, shares updates about the progress or goals of My Peak Challenge and to inspire fans.
