Our famous event Run Row Ride will take place once again this coming November!
The challenge is to take on 30 miles over 30 days, all in support of the 30 people who are diagnosed with a brain tumour every day here in the UK.
For those 30 people, the road ahead looks scary and uncertain. By taking part in Run Row Ride you’ll aim to raise £200 to ensure that brainstrust can be here to help families feel less afraid, less alone and more in control.
Run, row or ride…..do it your way!
Challenging sporting endeavours have always been an exciting part of our fundraising, but we know that for many people such challenges aren’t possible. The impact of a brain tumour diagnosis can often make it impossible to contemplate taking on a long run or walk.
Run Row Ride is something everyone can get involved with, setting their own challenge, whatever that looks like. It’s also a chance to get together as a community and challenge ourselves to do something new, positive and joyful as we enter the darker, colder months.
Set yourself a 30 day challenge, your way. For example, you could:
- Explore a different street in your neighbourhood each day as you challenge yourself to 30 days of walking
- Challenge yourself to walk a certain number of steps every day, whether that’s just up and down your garden, in the gym, or even around your kitchen
- Focus on the joy of nature, rather than the physical challenge, and set yourself the goal of getting outside to make a new discovery each day
Whether you stay undercover at the gym or explore the great outdoors, your incredible fundraising efforts will support 30 people who have heard the words “you have a brain tumour” today.
Why we’re asking you to get involved
By raising £200 you could help to fund four hours of coaching with one of our dedicated Support Specialists. When life with a brain tumour feels overwhelming, our coaching conversations help people to focus on the things that matter most to them, so they can live their best day, every day.
“Your help has been monumental to me in working through my thoughts and understanding of this disease. You have helped me gain a perspective on what has happened. Thank you so much for all your time and kindness” – Carer
£200 could also fund five brain boxes, our must-have support toolkit for people newly diagnosed with a brain tumour. Customised for each individual every brain box includes a selection of brainstrust -accredited resources to help them feel informed and prepared to face the road ahead, as well as small gifts to help them practise some self-care.
“brainstrust was my very first port of call after my diagnosis – the brain box turned out to be a lifeline I could never forget” – Patient
When you sign up you’ll receive a fundraising pack which will include a brainstrust t-shirt or vest! And yes, the stylish brainstrust water bottle pictured is available to order here to complete your look!
