Support Chris Hill's Marathon Run
Help us raise £100,000 for more free addiction workshops and the purchase of a mobile therapy bus
Make a Difference, Have Fun & Raise Awareness of Addiction
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. Our founder and CEO, addiction expert Chris Hill is running in the London Virgin Marathon on 26th April 2020. The Rob Hill Foundation was very fortunate to be picked as one of only 500 charities offered a place in the marathon.
So we need your help to make this count!
The money raised will go towards expanding our free addiction and mental health workshops and support groups to more areas throughout the country. And for the purchase of a mobile therapy bus, which we'll take out to support homeless people in starting their addiction recovery journey and to raise awareness of addiction and mental health through outreach to schools and communities.
We've come up with a number of different fundraising ideas designed to be fun and challenging - to raise awareness of addiction and to encourage you to do something that supports your physical and mental wellbeing.
- Sponsor Chris to run in the London Marathon
Simply make a donation to the Rob Hill Foundation in support of Chris Hill's marathon run.
- Get other people to sponsor Chris to run in the London Marathon
By choosing this option, you'll receive a sponsorship form which you can use to gather sponsorship for Chris from colleagues, family and friends in the form of a donations, which we'll then ask you to deposit either direct to the charity or to Chris's marathon campaign page.
- Do your own sponsored challenge in support of Chris's marathon run
You can do this as an individual, with friends, family or colleagues at work. Select a challenge you'd like to attempt. It can be anything such as the next Park Run at your local park, lengths of a swimming pool, taking up exercise and doing it daily for a set time, losing weight either individually or collectively as a team, eating healthily for week (agree what you will and will not eat as part of the challenge). It can be anything at all - make it fun, challenging and get people to sponsor you.
- 24-Hour or 48-Hour Stop Smoking Challenge for Mums & Dads
This is a challenge that could be done at home within your own family or through a school so it becomes a 'raising awareness' of addiction exercise. It gives children and their parents an opportunity to discuss how they feel about smoking and the dangers of smoking; and for those parents thinking of giving up smoking this challenge would be a good place to start; whilst helping your kids raise some money for a good cause.
- Friday to Sunday No Alcohol Weekend Challenge for Mums & Dads
Again, this challenge could be done at home within your own family or through a school to raise awareness of alcohol addiction and the dangers of drinking alcohol. If you want to understand if alcohol is an issue for you - try not drinking for a whole weekend. Use this opportunity to talk to your children about alcohol whilst raising money for a good cause.
- 24 Hours Sugar Free, Healthy Eating Challenge
Do you have a sugar addiction? How do you find out? Try stopping all non-essential foods: anything with added or refined sugar, chocolates, sweets, cakes, biscuits, crisps, puddings, ice-cream for 24 hours. And at the same time, introduce healthy options.
- Sugar Free Cake Bake
This is suitable for doing amongst colleagues, within groups and schools. Organise a bake sale but stipulate that the ingredients must not contain added / refined sugar. Sell the cakes or other baked items to raise money for the charity.
