Charity Challenges are a great way of doing something incredible and achieving a personal goal, whilst raising money to help people who come to Thrive achieve their goals.
You can choose an event to participate in like running events, skydives and international treks and choose Thrive as your charity. Alternatively you can make up your own challenge that meets your capabilities and goals such as walking 100 miles in month or a year - the challenge is yours to set!
We have teamed up with Goldline events as their Bronze Charity partner for the 2020 Reading Half Marathon. So, why not dust off your running shoes and rise to the challenge?
This is your chance to reach your own personal best running through Reading and the stunning university grounds, cheered on by thousands of keen spectators. It doesn’t matter if you are an avid runner, if you have the passion, drive and want to show your support for Thrive then we would love to have you as part of our team. To get your place, contact the fundraising team today!
Our Learning and Technology Officer Bex Watson-Stubbs celebrated her first year at Thrive by running the 2019 Reading Half Marathon raising a fantastic £630 of valuable funds along the way.
Bex told us, “knowing that every penny I had raised would help support the clients I have come to know, to ensure that our provision is open to those who could really be benefiting from horticultural therapy, that made every step of the half marathon worth it.
Even when the hills loomed and my legs hurt I knew I was doing something for a really special charity, and that made the high of completing it even sweeter.”
