Olivia Strong MBE



Olivia is a documentary producer and in 2020 she created the Instagram challenge: Run 5KM, donate £5 to the NHS and challenge 5 others to do the same. Since it began the not for profit has raised over £6.7 million which has completely overtaken her original target of £5,000. The simple, but effective, challenge inspired many people to get out and run and it has also improved their mental and physical health.

She set up the fundraising idea during Covid-19 to encourage others to get outside and use their permitted outdoor exercise to raise money for the NHS Charities Together, the umbrella organisation that takes in charities which support the welfare of NHS staff in their fight against Covid-19.
