For 2012 we have many challenge events for you to choose from including trekking, cycling, running and skydiving. Our challenges are organised by one of most experienced event specialists in the UK - 'Do it for Charity', the creation of charity events organisers Skyline Events. They have been leading the way in the UK for over 16 years, working with well over 1000 charities and raising literally tens of millions of pounds. Now it’s your chance to take advantage of their experience and raise money for RICE with your own exhilarating personal adventure.
What is a Challenge Event?
The basic idea is that you take part in a difficult challenge and in return your friends, family and colleagues sponsor you. This 'difficult challenge' could be as simple as a 5k walk or as extreme as trekking to Everest base camp - the choice is yours. Clearly the more extreme the challenge the more likely it is that you will raise significant funds.
We will ask you to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship to take part, to cover the event costs and provide a donation for us. You will need to pay a registration fee up front to help pay for the administration costs for organising the event. The remaining amount will be raised by an agreed date.
Our events are ideal for individuals, friends together or large groups, teams and corporates. They encourage team work, help build relationships and can engage with people on a wide variety of levels.
