There’s no better feeling than completing a personal challenge while helping people with neurological conditions to lead longer, healthier, happier lives.

Join our team

The Brain Charity can get you a free place at thousands of the UK’s most popular challenge events.

Everyone who joins our team and pledges to raise at least £100 will receive a Brain Charity t-shirt or running vest.

Run for The Brain Charity

Lace up your trainers to fundraise for The Brain Charity at some of the world’s most iconic running events. Run for us to support the 1 in 6 people living with neurological conditions.

You don’t have to be an endurance athlete to take part – there are challenges for all levels of ability, from 5km obstacle courses to ultramarathons.

Tick something exciting off your bucket list

Why not take on an adrenaline-fuelled charity skydive for The Brain Charity, have a go at a Tough Mudder, abseil down one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings or bungee jump at 300ft?
