Fundraising Inspiration – Run a mile (or two) for us

At the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, we are always excited to hear about your fundraising efforts – nothing makes us smile more than hearing about your dedication to raising funds for our organisation.

Just in case you were searching for inspiration for your next event, though, we thought we’d share a few upcoming fundraisers with you – see how these tickle your fancy!

The London 2 Brighton Challenge gives participants the opportunity to walk, run, or jog the 100kms from Richmond, West London, to Brighton. Take in the sights, make some new friends, and push yourselves to achieve something that little bit special. A new challenge of 56km, from Richmond to Tulley’s Farm, Turner’s Hill, has been added to the challenge this year for those who want to break themselves in gently. The challenge is due to begin on the morning of 24th May 2014, with many participants hoping to complete the course within 24 hours.

Covering a distance of 5km, The Bridgwater Half Marathon will be taking place on Sunday 7th September 2014. Again, walkers, joggers, and runners are invited to participate in this fantastic event, raising money for a great cause while having lots of fun.

Always fancied being a superhero? Well now you can be, and while raising valuable funds for the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation – it doesn’t get any more super than that! The annual Super Hero Run 2014 will be taking place in London’s Regent’s Park on 18th May. A registration fee of £22 is required, although this will include a FREE super hero outfit for all participants. We’re pretty sure that fundraising has never been such fun.

Taking place on the 27th April 2014, The Plymouth Half Marathon passes by some of the city’s most famous and beautiful sights and monuments. What could be better than raising money while treading the coastal paths, navigating the famous harbour, or rambling through some truly stunning National Trust land? We’re stumped too!

We are looking for teams and individuals who would like to enter any of the above in our honour. Please contact to register your interest, or to let us know what you will be doing to raise money for the charity.

Details of further fundraising events can be found here, along with all the information you need about getting involved. Entries to the Bath Half Marathon, as run by Zoe Bromiley and Mike Parry this year, are now open too – never has there been a better time to get fit.

Zoe and Mike raised a fantastic £145 for us during their Bath Half, and we couldn’t be more pleased or proud of them.
