Challenge yourself this year for The Brain Charity

It’s a new year, full of opportunity and potential, with the chance of a clean slate to start afresh. If you would like to try something new this year, perhaps you could take on a challenge for The Brain Charity and help people with neurological conditions such as stroke, epilepsy, fibromyalgia and brain injury.

We already have one brave individual running the Virgin London Marathon on our behalf, along with 2 people running the Great North Run and 2 have already signed up for the first ever Big Half in London. That’s a total of 78 miles already being run for The Brain Charity, and hopefully some great fundraising.

Your challenge does not need to be this big. You could start small, with the Wirral Costal Walk for example, which can be 4, 10 or 15 miles (no running involved)

But if you do like to run, we have plenty of spaces coming up in popular running events. Keep an eye on our social media for news of these.
You may want to challenge yourself to something more adventurous, like a skydive or zip wire, just get in touch and we can help.

Not all challenges need to be physical, you could challenge yourself to do without birthday presents this year and set up a Facebook fundraiser for us - then ask friends and family to donate instead of giving gifts.

You could do a head shave, give up alcohol or your favourite food and ask friends and family to support you. If you like what we stand for, have received help from us, or if we have helped a friend or loved one and you would like to say thank you by fundraising then please contact Carolyn on 0151 298 2999 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
