This year, demand for The Brain Charity’s services has shot up by 70%, but we’ve been unable to fundraise as we usually would.
One in six people have a neurological condition, and more need our help than ever before.
Throughout December, we’re asking people from all over the UK to organise and participate in a sponsored virtual or covid-safe activity event themed around the number six.
Start fundraising for The Brain Charity here.
Whether you're an adrenaline junkie, exercise fiend or prefer something a little more sedate from the comfort of your own home, all fundraisers big and small will be supported on their journeys to raise vital cash for The Brain Charity. All we ask is that you pledge to raise at least £60 to help us achieve our £6,000 target by December 31.
Here are some virtual and socially distanced, covid-safe six-themed fundraising ideas to get you started:
Distances of six:
Walk, run, roll, cycle or travel 600m, 6km, six miles, 16km, 60 miles, or even 600km!
All levels of fitness are welcome - you choose your own six-themed challenge and whether your event is one-off or carried out multiple times within the month to reach the total.
You can select your own route, or we can assist you with this if required.
And while we can't cheer you on in person, you can bet we'll be following your journey virtually via social media and apps like Strava.
What can you do six times, or in six minutes, hours or days? Let your imagination flow!
Whether it's taking sponsorship for a six-hour sponsored silence, six-day sporting challenge, six season TV show marathon or seeing how many times you can bounce up and down on a trampoline for six minutes, the sky is the limit!
Groups of six:
If you live in an area where the rule of six is being observed, what could you do safely, outdoors, with five other friends, maintaining social distancing?
What about a six-person bake sale, garden afternoon tea or garage clear out?
Or, if tier 3 restrictions are still in force, could you meet as a group of six, 16, 60 or 66 (or more!) on Zoom for a sponsored virtual murder mystery, karaoke session, film night, gameathon, quiz or race night?
