We are able to offer you the flexibility to be as creative as you wish to find or organise an event that appeals to you. As we are a small charity, we simply do not have the resources currently for our own event.
Whether it is on dry land or making a splash, endurance events are always popular with our fundraisers. Set yourself a personal goal with a renewed focus; many of our fundraisers consider and value participation in these events as part of their personal recovery journey.
Use the Time Outdoors website to find running, walking, swimming, or cycling challenges in your area. If you cannot find an organised event, feel free to set up your own sponsored walk, swim etc. Our Fundraising Coordinator is on hand to guide you with her knowledge and expertise. These websites are also useful:
The EPT1000 Challenge — Your Goal, Your Way
At the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust, we thought we would set up EPT1000 Challenge that will stretch and inspire you for a whole 12 months. It is low cost, you are in control and by the end you will have achieved something truly amazing.
The challenge is either to run, walk, cycle or a mixture of all covering a distance of either 1000 miles or a 1000 km within the space of 12 months. You can track your activities manually or import from an exercising app such as MapMyRun, Strava, Garmin, fitbit etc Then gain support and increase awareness by telling everyone what you are doing and why and let them know where to find your online fundraising site. Take the challenge!
The EPT Mini Challenges
Join us on one of our fun EPT Mini Challenges to raise awareness and funds for the charity (and even add to your medal collection!).
There’s something for everyone with a range of EPT Mini Challenges which will be unveiled every few months including a 10k run, a 10 mile walk or run and even a sociable cake-bake. You can join in with as many as you like.
