Take on a challenge

Chris riding his bike

In 2007 my mum's life completely changed when she was diagnosed with MS. After seeing how a life can change in a moment I thought I'd put being a young keen cyclist to good use and raise money for a charity close to my heart.

Chris, took part in Race across America raising over £5,500

If you are looking for a challenge and want to raise money for the MS Trust, there are many challenges you can take part in, such as:

  • Climb the Three Peaks
  • Take on Snowdon
  • Cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats
  • Join the London to Brighton bike ride
  • Organise a cycle challenge
  • Do a swimming challenge

There are lots of benefits to arranging your own challenge - you can pick exactly what you want to do and when you want to do it. You could embark on the challenge on your own or with a larger group. And for many challenges you won't have the pressure of raising a minimum sponsorship.

Have a look online or at the events list below as there are many organisations that run challenges like these. Alternatively you could plan one on your own and get your own team of people involved. If you would like our support with finding the right challenge for you, please get in touch. We will also provide everything you need to raise sponsorship.
