Help raise funds for TVF by taking part in 5K MAY - run, walk, cycle, swim, push … complete 5K MAY your way, donate £5 to TVF and nominate 5 others .... 5K MAY is totally inclusive and available to all!
THE BACKGROUND TO 5K MAY - from JUST GIVING BLOG
Last Summer, the #Run5Donate5Nominate5 running challenge went viral, with members of the public running 5K, donating £5 and then nominating a further 5 friends to take on the trend. This social media sensation raised £7million for the NHS COVID-19 appeal through mobilising 1.5 million participants, 71% of which were under 34. The charity Run for Heroes were the creators behind the challenge and now they’re back with a new virtual challenge, 5K May, and your charity can be part of it!
What is 5K May?
Run for Heroes know their stuff when it comes to virtual fundraising and they’re taking all of their learnings from last year’s challenge and making it bigger, better, and open to all charities! Led by a social media campaign and promoted through press and media announcements, the virtual challenge will span the whole month of May. Members of the public will be asked to complete 5K in whatever way they can – whether it’s run, roll, walk, cycle, swim, skate or even skip – then donate a minimum of £5 to one of the charities that have signed-up, finally nominating five friends to carry on the awesome fundraising trend!
TVF is excited to be part of 5K MAY - we hope you will be too and you will get involved and raise funds which will help to transform many more lives.
You can do 5K MAY your way, on a date that suits you and if you are really keen each week or every day for the month of May! Colleagues and friends can take part from anywhere in the world and regardless of lockdown limitations.
If 100 supporters take part in 5K MAY donate £5 and nominate 5 others to do the same then we can raise at least £3,000 ... if each of the 500 who are nominated nominate 5 others who donate £5 we could raise £10,000 ........
We are aiming for 5K MAY to raise at least £5k which could provide Toolkit Grants for 20 more medical students from lower socio-economic backgrounds ..... to find our more or to register please get in touch NOW!
