You can easily raise money for the Challenging Behaviour Foundation without spending anything extra, or leaving the comfort of your sofa!
Over the years, numerous people have taken on a sporting challenge in support of the CBF. Below are just a few of the photos we have to mark their endeavours. Thank you to you all!
Run, walk, cycle, swim
Whatever your activity, we’re hugely grateful for the support!
We encourage all of our supporters wishing to run the London Marathon to enter the ballot, which is usually a week or two after the marathon in April. Anyone who raises more than £150 will receive a free running t-shirt or vest!
2021: CBF employee Carina (left) is running the London Marathon later this year, and both Carina and Helen are running the 1,083 mile virtual trip from Lands End to John O’Groats. Other CBF staff are hiking the Camino de Santiago virtual trek across Spain, whilst Keith Ridge is running the London Landmarks Half Marathon to highlight our work.
2020: The CBF managed to get a coveted charity place for the London Marathon whereby competitors ran a marathon distance near their homes on 4th October. Ben Matthews won the ballot for the CBF charity place and ran the virtual London Marathon along part of the North Downs Way and raised an amazing £2715.25.
2019: Josie Warner ran the London Marathon in April 2019, raising funds for the CBF. Josie is connected to the CBF through her Aunt Helen, who is our Finance and Fundraising Lead and who also ran the London Marathon for the CBF in 2018. We are very grateful to Josie for her support and fantastic fundraising.
Try out skydiving
You could organise a sponsored skydive. Raise money and have the experience of a lifetime!
Perched on the edge of the tiny plane you are suddenly launched into orbit! Tumbling disorientated your brain and heart freak out!! But only for a split second. Your body levels with gravity and you go ohhh WOW! Falling with style! Words and thoughts fail as adrenalin and acceleration take over. You are in awe. Life takes on perspective. You can do anything.
KM Charity Team Events
We have teamed up with the Kent Messenger (KM) Charity Team who have a host of events you can sign up to, taking you on your own personal challenge as well as raising funds for The CBF. Challenges include cycle rides, abseiling, quizzes, fun runs and much much more.
Get work involved
There are various ways to fundraise with your workplace or business. If you would like to donate through your salary, the Give as you Earn scheme means you will not be taxed on your charitable donations. Or you could organise a fundraising event with your work, maybe staff challenges and team building, quiz nights or team runs? You could also ask your work to match the funds you raise for us. Another way could be to nominate us as ‘charity of the year’.
