Fundraising Challenges

Join us as we take on some epic fundraising challenges in 2014 and beyond!

In 2013, Snow-Camp supporters took on a range of fundraising challenges to raise money for our work including the Brighton Marathon, the Moonriders London to Brighton bikeride, skydiving from 10,000ft, and Snow-Camps inaugural 3 peaks challenge! Not to mention a whole range of individual challenges our supporters organised themselves, take a look here! These fundraising events play a crucial role in fundraising for the charity and we are always overwhelmed by the fantastic effort that everyone puts in. Not only do we hear some great stories of supporters putting in the training hours for these events, but we regularly see participants going above and beyond their individual fundraising targets which makes a huge difference towards our work!
