Take on a BLF challenge in 2016

If you’ve not made your New Year’s resolution yet, we’ve got a suggestion…

Sign up for one of the 2016 events, and you can challenge yourself, get fit and help British Lung Foundation all at the same time.

You could jump out of a plane, complete a half marathon, cycle a beautiful 100 mile route and more. And we’ll help you every step of the way. Best of all, whatever you do, the funds you raise will go to help us continue our work supporting people with lung disease.

Complete a half marathon

Whether you’re a regular runner or an eager newbie (couch-to-5k anyone?), a half marathon is the perfect challenge for 2016! We have places in both the Great North Run in and the Royal Parks Half Marathon. With both races taking place in the autumn, you’ll have plenty of time to train – all you need to do is choose between north and south!

Whichever you choose, we’ll be here for you every step of the way with training and fundraising advice, a BLF running vest and on-the-day support. And by fundraising for the BLF, you’ll be making a huge difference in the fight against lung disease.

Skydive for charity

If your ideal challenge involves less training and more adrenaline, why not join the BLF Skydiving Day in May? We have spaces available at airfields throughout the UK so, no matter where you are, you can have the experience of a life time and help us fight lung disease at the same time.

If you’re keen to take part, let us know by emailing or calling 0207 078 7912 and we’ll help you book your skydive, as well as sending out everything you need to start fundraising.

Take on a cycling challenge

If riding a bike is more your style, why not consider taking on a cycling challenge in 2016? RideLondon is an incredible 100 mile race, following the Olympic route from London to Surrey and tackle the infamous Box and Leith Hills. We get great feedback about the ride from our RideLondon team every year – this is one event not to be missed!

The event happens in mid-July, giving you plenty of time to prepare.  So no matter if you’re a seasoned pro, a keen commuter or just a beginner biker, you can get ready for RideLondon.

Join Team Breathe, our official ride team, and we’ll send you all you need to get started with training and fundraising, offer regular help and advice and cheer you round the course on the big day!

Take Steps for the British Lung Foundation

Are you looking for a challenge, but want it to fit you? Sign up to Take Steps in June! Whether you join us for one of our sponsored walks in London or Liverpool, or hold your own perfectly tailored walking challenge, you’ll be doing something amazing for the BLF.

We’ll help you plan a walk for any ability as well as offering fundraising advice and support. Let us know if you’d like to find out more about how to Take Steps to beat lung disease.
