Conquer it Together
Set a Challenge for yourself, friends and colleagues to raise money for a new ‘Centre of Hope’
This autumn we are taking our fundraising to a higher level by launching a new campaign under the banner Conquer it Together. We are asking you to challenge yourself either mentally or physically to raise as much awareness and sponsorship money as possible. If everyone involved aims high, together we can raise £1 million and launch a new ‘Centre of Hope’, a centre dedicated to brain tumour research.
Step outside your comfort zone to achieve a goal or realise a long-held ambition, or organise a team event to reach heady new heights of endurance, the finish line of an extreme challenge or simply to have a fun afternoon.
Set yourself a goal to generate hundreds of pounds or as a group to raise thousands in sponsorship and together we‘ll be on our way to that new ‘Centre of Hope’.
Raise £s and Shed lbs
Now’s the time to test your organising skills, conquer a long-standing goal, overcome a deep-rooted phobia, banish a habit or push your body to the limit, increase your levels of fitness, lose weight, give up smoking, get active.
Why not get everyone together and organise a physical event such as a walk around the park or local beauty spot, a cycle trail, a swimathon, a zumbathon or a run around the playground. On your own try something challenging such as running a marathon, climbing a mountain, or attempting something mentally demanding. Go on - make a list of all the experiences which would make you and your friends proud or that will give you the biggest adrenalin rush of your life and conquer it.
Face Your Fears
You could raise money by conquering a personal fear or lifelong phobia. Perhaps you are terrified of spiders or snakes and are determined to overcome this fear? You could organise a close encounter with your darkest nightmare at a zoo or wildlife park.
Maybe you have a fear of flying. Certain airlines run special courses designed to help you get up in the air by talking through your fears, providing factual reassurance, and the greatest achievement of all – taking a short flight.
Afraid of heights? Challenge yourself and a team of colleagues or friends to climb a rock face or abseil down a tall local landmark. Contact your local press to raise awareness of the event and you’ll be surprised at the level of support you’ll receive from the wider community.
Exhilarating and Rewarding
Go for the ultimate thrill and bonding experience, take your sponsorship to a higher plane - do a bungee jump, parachute jump, paraglide, take a flight in a glider.
You might even find you become hooked on the excitement and start craving more and more challenges in life. Conquering a single fear can change your life and give fresh hope to others.
Set a goal, stretch yourself, overcome a fear, aim high, conquer it!
Decide what you are going to do, how many are going to do it with you, publicise your challenge and obtain sponsorship. To help you on your way, download our fundraising pack which will give you all the tools you need to make your challenge event a huge success. The pack includes posters, invitations, sponsorship and gift aid forms, as well as a template press release which you can tailor to your specific activity to ensure the widest publicity. It’s very straightforward to set up your own, or a collective Just Giving page, so that people can donate at the click of a button and we can easily claim the Gift Aid back from the Government.
Please take part in our Conquer it Together campaign. Every penny you raise will go towards establishing a new ‘Centre of Hope’ - a dedicated centre of brain tumour research. Every step you take, takes research a step closer to finding a cure.
