Take on a sponsored challenge for TA
Taking on a sponsored challenge is a great way to fundraise for Tourettes Action, and it’s also a brilliant opportunity to push yourself to do something you wouldn’t normally. Whether it is running a marathon, jumping out of a plane or embarking on a long distance cycle ride, we have got something for you.
Run the London Marathon for TA
The Virgin London Marathon is the biggest charity event in the world. TA is lucky to have one charity Golden Bond for the Virgin London Marathon, giving us six charity places each year.
The event raises a huge proportion of our annual fundraising revenue, with our runners raising a minimum of £1,700 each, a target we have found to be more than achievable.
If you are interested in running in a Golden Bond place for TA in the London Marathon please contact us for more details.
We are also delighted to support runners who have secured a ballot place for the London Marathon and want to run in aid of TA. Please contact us to discuss this in more detail if you have a ballot place for the upcoming London Marathon.
Other national events
There is an endless list of events that take place around the UK each year, including running, walking, cycling, swimming and, with triathlons, a mixture of all there. Here are just a few examples:
- Brighton Marathon
- London 2 Brighton Trek
- Tough Mudder
- Virgin Active London Triathlon
- BUPA Great North Run
- Birmingham Half Marathon
- Royal Parks Half Marathon
The best way to secure a place in one of these events is to purchase a place when registration opens. Make sure you book early to avoid missing out and once your place is confirmed email TA to discuss how we can support your fundraising.
We prefer not to buy places in these events because charity registration is more expensive than for individuals. However, if you cannot secure a place please contact us to discuss further.
