This year we are working on the concept of ‘together but separate’ – you can still unite with other Charity Week volunteers at your institution by taking on the 2020 Challenge together, which does not require any events to be organised or any social gatherings.
The 2020 Challenge is simple – pick any activity to be sponsored to do and apply the number 20 to it! You could wash 20 cars, run 20miles, do a 20 hour sponsored silence – the possibilities are endless! To take part, simple select the virtual challenge option at registration, or if you have already registered, you can opt into the challenge by clicking on “Edit this Supporter Page” under your profile image.
The fundraising goal for this event is however much you feel you can raise! The more you ask friends and family to support you, the greater your chance of seeing yourself on the leader board! If you feel that you might not be able to reach the goal, please don’t worry – we appreciate that you are taking part and helping to raise funds for Charity Week.
