Your support matters 

We all understand the benefits of activity for mind and body, now more than ever. Now’s your chance to take part in a world famous event and support disabled people across Scotland to access technology, allowing them to live, learn, and work as independently as they choose. 

One in five of us will become disabled at some point in our lives. Many will become disabled after an accident, or from a stroke, cancer, or developing conditions like multiple sclerosis or motor neurone disease. These life-changing circumstances can stop people in their tracks. Your fundraising will help ensure people can achieve their dreams.

What you'll get as part of our team

  • Full, dedicated support from a member of our fundraising team.
  • Fundraising pack with helpful materials such as a branded running vest and tips on boosting your fundraising income.
  • A cheering point on the route.
  • The opportunity to visit your local service to view the incredible work you’re supporting.
  • Official thank you letter and certificate after the event.
