Sponsored events

Sporting glory could be yours.

You don’t have to dress up like a meerkat and run the London Marathon to raise money for Child Autism UK, but it’s certainly one way to do it.

These days there are so many different ways to raise money through a sponsored event and they are a great way to raise awareness and money to help children with autism. As well as raising vital funds, it can be a lot of fun as well.

The options seem virtually endless – the classic full and half marathons leap to mind of course, which take place all over the UK and the World; but here are just some other events that Child Autism UK supporters have taken part in recently:

  • BT dyed his hair a stunning shade of fluorescent pink
  • J F grew an amazing growth of facial hair
  • R K took on the challenge of Death Valley, USA, armed only with a bike – and won!
  • B took our breath away by jumping out of a plane

And…

  • B D trekked to the ancient city of Petra, Jordan

Did that give you some ideas or can you come up with something completely different? Whatever you choose to do, get in touch with Child Autism UK and we’ll send you your fundraising pack to get you started.

To whet your appetite still further, read all about Child Autism UK supporter Gareth’s achievement in the Great South Run and how Theo’s mum was inspired.

You can see what events our supporters are taking part in on the Child Autism UK Justgiving page.

Setting up your own Justgiving Fundraising page is the easiest way to be sponsored for your event as all you have to do is email a link to your page to everyone you can think of and post it to Social Media. Then you don’t have to collect the money afterwards – just put your feet up after all your sterling efforts and give yourself a well-earned pat on the back as Justgiving does the work for you! If you are a UK taxpayer we can claim another 25% for each donation we receive. This means for every £1,000 donated we can claim an additional £250!

If you are an ‘armchair supporter’ and even thinking about running makes you break out in a cold sweat – never fear, you can always sponsor someone else and leave them an encouraging message on their Justgiving page as you settle down with a cuppa and a digestive.
