CHALLENGE EVENTS

STRETCH YOURSELF!

Join or create a challenge event and change the world in the process! There are many different ways to raise funds through challenge events.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE?

How about skydiving or scaling a skyscraper? Walking 100km along the Jurassic Coast or Cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats? There are many challenge events held across the country and globally each year with distances and difficulty levels to suit everyone – search ‘charity challenge events’ for inspiration.

ALREADY GOT YOUR OWN PLACE ON A CHALLENGE EVENT?

Why not use this opportunity to raise money for OAPA. Set up a fundraising page with Virgin Money Giving, select Only a Pavement Away, tell your colleagues, friends and family and start fundraising!

(A friendly reminder; if you have applied for and been allocated a place through another charity, please use it for that charity.)

GET YOUR COLLEAGUES, SUPPLIERS AND CUSTOMERS SIGNED UP!

To maximise your fundraising, why not encourage your colleagues, suppliers and customers to get involved too and organise into teams to challenge each other —by department, by site, by position or randomly select teams to mix colleagues with customers and suppliers – Great team building exercise! If your company has many locations, you can add the challenge of being the team/department/site to raise the most money for the charity.

VIRTUAL RACES AND CHALLENGE EVENTS

Virtual Races and Challenge Events are the perfect tool for maintaining focus and motivation whether you are training for an event, supporting company health and wellbeing targets or just wanting to have fun while keeping fit! Each time you complete a distance-based exercise or activity such as walking to work, running for the bus, walking your dog, cycling with your family, your daily gym session or swimming in the sea, you or your team can log your distance towards a goal such as swimming the channel, walking the length of Hadrian’s wall.
