Stuck for ideas and how to help? If you would like to set-up or take part in an event, to raise money and enable children and adults to take part in adventure therapy, here are some ideas you may like to consider:
Run a Marathon or take part in a Triathlon
Collection at a sporting event, such as a football or rugby match
Sometimes the most difficult challenges we face in life are personal to us; as part of your journey we would be grateful if you would consider raising vital funds for Adventure Therapy along the way. Or it might be that you just like the idea of doing something to help and want to have fun, without going too far out of your comfort zone. Whatever your challenge, you can be assured that any funds or awareness raised for Adventure Therapy, will make a positive difference to the children and adults that we support.
Sponsored head shave
Why not take part in your own adventure and challenge yourself either personally or as a team member, as part of a group. Your experience in the outdoors can help children and adults with disabilities, life-limiting illnesses or life-changing conditions to take part in an adventure, too.
Share your experience on your social networking and drive additional support for your event from family, friends and colleagues - raising funds as you climb, swim, trek or go over the edge in the name of Adventure Therapy.
An overseas challenge event, such as climbing Kilimanjaro or trekking the Sahara
The Three Peaks Challenge
Entering the Tough Mudder
These are just a few ideas of how you could help, whilst taking part in a personal challenge or an event which takes you out of your comfort zone. Please get in touch if we can help with publicity or you require information about Adventure Therapy to help promote the reason for your sponsorship ask.
This may be your personal journey but it's often fun to involve family, friends and work colleagues - and the more people involved, the greater the support - both emotionally and through the difference you make through your sponsorship.
If you are working, it's also worth asking your employer for their support - and whether they would be willing to match fund any amount you raise. It's great for staff moral and it could help to raise their company profile in the local community.
Visit www.justgiving.com/adventuretherapy to set up your online fundraising page and e-mail a link to your family, friends and colleagues - it's a fanastic way to spread the word about your event.
Good luck with your event - and thank you for your support.
