Could you use the Gung-Ho! challenge to raise money for a charity close to your heart?
Since 2015 Gung-Ho! runners have raised over £1 million for charities up and down the country - and you can raise money too!
Our national charity partner is Children in Need but you can raise money for any worthy cause you choose. You'll be able to donate the money directly to the charity without any involvement from us - it's entirely in your court!
To help you on your way, you can find a printable sponsorship form and a guide to setting up a JustGiving account below. You can offer online sponsorship that will allow you to reach friends and family across social media or print out paper copies to share in the workplace!
We know asking for sponsorship can be tough, so we've also included a template message you can copy and paste in an email or social media post to friends & family.
We can't wait to hear about the difference your hard work will make!
You can set up an online fundraising page with JustGiving - the money is collected and delivered to the charity without any involvement from you. No need to collect or handle money and the charity is certain to benefit from every penny. Your job is simply to spread the word as far and wide as possible!
Asking for sponsorship isn't always easy. Use this sponsorship request template in your place of work, or via email or social media!
