Sports and Challenges
Starlight supporters have also completed some incredible challenges to raise funds for the charity. We’ve seen families running marathons, grannies sky diving, lovely Londoners trekking up Mt Kilimanjaro, an epic cycle adventure from Norway to Sicily, an overnight London to Paris ride and even a cross-channel swim. There’s no limit to what you could do – let your imagination run wild.
You can set up your own fundraising page on our website – it’s simple, secure and a great way of collecting sponsorship online. With your own web page, it’s simple to promote your personal challenge and appeal for sponsorship via email, Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else you can post a link. Once you’ve completed your fundraising, here’s how to pay in the money you’ve raised.
