LYMPHIE STRONG #MOVETHATLYMPH 30 Day RACE & REBOUND Challenge Instructions

I am totally thrilled and excited to bring you this awesome new program as part of our challenge series. BrightLIfe Direct first collaborated with us back in October 2019 for the Lymphie Strong’s Favorite Things blog post and other giveaways. For November 2020 we are launching the first ever rebound challenge in #movethatlymph history. It’s been in the works for months and glad to see it come together to promote lymphatic health awareness.” –Veronica Seneriz, Founder of Lymphie Strong

“We take great pride in supporting our customers and hope to continue advocating for lymphedema awareness and education.

About BrightLife Direct

BrightLife is a company that’s focused on customer happiness and health above all else. Our founders, Kip and Peter, started the company in 1999 with the mission of bringing a lower price compression stocking option to customers on a fixed budget. Kip and Peter went directly to a mill in North Carolina and designed an affordable line of high-quality compression wear called Allegro. It was a quick success as so many people needed these products, but couldn’t afford the brand name prices.

Over the years, our business has expanded outside of compression socks and stockings to offer every possible kind of medical compression product from velcro wraps, to bandages, to armsleeves, to swell spots and custom garments. Our core mission of superior customer service has remained. We are constantly asking ourselves, what products can we find and what services can we provide to make our customer’s lives better?

Over the past few years, we have become more and more involved with lymphedema advocacy, supporting not only our customers but the lymphedema therapists and medical professionals in the field. We have launched a consignment program for medical professionals called STAT, and we offer a Thank a Therapist program to reward amazing lymphedema professionals. We also offer a scholarship program for students who are pursuing physical or occupational therapy degrees.

Virtual Team Atmosphere

  • No need for your workouts to be complicated.
  • Participate at your level and do not be afraid to try something new with necessary modifications.
  • This is a challenge for Lymphies by Lymphies. This means it is not a competition. It is a challenge for yourself to improve or maintain your lymphatic health, depending on your needs.
  • By joining you commit to #MOVETHATLYMPH and sharing your progress in the group. Do not sign up if you do not have time.
  • This challenge is a pledge to support and inspire your teammates. 

Social Media Dedication

If sharing makes you uncomfortable or you do not have time to post on social media, then this virtual challenge is not for you.

If you do not share your workouts in the group, you are not motivating others and likewise others cannot support and motivate you when you need encouragement.

Think of your sharing as tracking your progress or a journal towards your achievement.  You will be surprised how much you have accomplished once you complete the challenge.

Withdrawing

Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about LE related or not. If you must drop out due to unforeseen circumstances such as cellulitis, surgery, or other emergency issues, send Lymphie Strong a message.  If the reason is personal, there is no need to divulge your private circumstances. You will not be chased if you are not on the finish line. No worries. We understand.
