Do it yourself…

You may prefer to set your own challenge. It could be walking 5km every day for a month, completing an ultramarathon, doing a workout in fancy dress – the options are endless!

If an active challenge isn’t your thing, why not plan a fundraiser instead? We’ve had supporters brave the shave, organise a bake sale, host live events, and so much more.

Remember that any fundraiser or challenge you do would make such a big difference to us, and we’d love to chat to you about your ideas.
