Cycling:

Adam 8 fundraising through cycling

Are you enjoying cycling during the summer months?  Now that restrictions have lifted why don’t you expand your cycling and take on a challenge?  Create your own challenge today and explore some of Scotland’s most beautiful cycling routes, set yourself a cycling goal and raise money to provide the extra things that make a big difference when patients are sick in hospital or to support staff to improve their skills and wellbeing.

Visit Scotland have put together some of the most spectacular cycling routes in Scotland from dramatic coastal scenery to windy coastal roads.  Choose a route that suits you starting from 8 miles right up to 234 miles!

Running:

Ready… set….Go!!!  Get your running shoes on and raise money by completing a 5K, 10K or a marathon. Decide how long you would like to take on the challenge for e.g. a day or a month and the distance you would like to cover, and make a start by setting up your fundraising page today.

Not sure where to start? Why not follow this couch to 5K programme?

We also have charity assured places for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival – there are a range of distances to choose from, find out more.

Walking:

Lori Joyce Fundraising WalkingSet yourself a challenge to walk 10,000 steps a day over a month and raise funds.  You’ll be amazed at the distance you’ll cover and can shed some of those lockdown pounds at the same time. Most smart phones have a built in step counter so you can easily keep track of how you’re doing.

You can set up a fundraising page to raise funds and track your miles using Strava which can be integrated onto your page.

If you fancy something a bit different like doing a virtual walk around Machu Picchu or in London have a look at World Walking to transport you some where else!

Setting up a Fundraising Page on JustGiving

Track your progress and link your fundraising to Edinburgh & Lothians Health Foundation by setting up your own JustGiving page

You can get your employer, colleagues, suppliers and customers fundraising for your chosen hospital. We have lots of ideas of how to get everyone involved regardless of the size of your organisation, or whether you are working remotely.  It’s a great excuse for some team building, and all for a good cause.
