Our Scientific Director Dr David Flavell explains about the life saving research work being conducted by Leukaemia Busters scientists and doctors.
We really hope that in 2017 you will continue to take on Challenges to raise sponsorship for Leukaemia Busters and will continue to give you as many ideas as possible on this page. If you have any suggestions please do not hesitate to contact us here and let us know so that we can pass on the information to other supporters.
If 2016 was not your year to take on a Challenge perhaps 2017 will be! Look through the huge range of Challenges available from Discover Adventure in Salisbury and see if anything they have listed gets your heart racing a bit faster and makes you think 'Yes - I could do that!' The helpful staff at Discover Adventure are always on the end of the telephone to talk to you about the various types of Challenge as well as being able to give you lots of tips about raising the necessary sponsorship.
Leon Zanre has already signed up to take on the London to Paris Cycle Challenge on 7th June 2017. perhaps you might like to join him for 5 days cycling from London, through Kent and then once across the channel through northern France to finish at the Eiffel Tower. Find out more details here .
If you don't fancy anything quite as adventurouse as the challenges on offer with Discover Adventure you can do something simpler - stay sober for a month, stay silent for an evening or even a whole day, grow a beard, cut your hair or lose weight . All those Challenges can be done in your own home at no extra expense and friends and family will always support and sponsor you.
There is a Challenge out there that every one of us can take on, raising funds for charity at the same time. Go to our Fundraising Pledge page and sign up to the Pledge to raise £100 in the next 12 months and then decide what Challenge you will take on to raise that money.
- Go on, make 2017 your Challenge Year.
