Lockdown fundraisers

Lockdown doesn’t stop us! Don’t let it stop you!

We’re still here supporting the 1 in 1,000 people who have congenital or acquired nystagmus, by phone, email and on social media, but we do need your support now more than ever before to carry on.

Release your inner fundraiser during lockdown

With marathons, 10k runs, sky dives and tough mudders all postponed for the summer, there’s still lots of opportunity to take part in virtual runs and challenges right now.

Choose from:

Climb Everest – A 12 week challenge perfect for isolation. Complete a climb equivalent to Mount Everest (8,848m) either out and about on your daily exercise, climbing the stairs indoors, or a combination of the two!  

Inca Trail – A virtual challenge to tick off the bucket list.  A 25 mile run, walk or jog to be completed in as many efforts as you can manage.

Team Gotham – Not all Superheros wear capes … some have to fight crime in isolation too! This is a 5k challenge, perfect for families who want to complete it together, or anyone looking to stay fit during lockdown.

The Big Charity Run – The ultimate challenge: pick a 30, 60, 90 or 120 mile distance to complete over a single month.  You can run, walk or cycle so set yourself an ambitious target and stay motivated!

Location Specific Races – If you’re looking for something that’s as close to a road race as physically possible, there are a number of location specific races included so you can take part in a race on a specific date.
