Setting new goals for 2021? Make your challenge really count by running, walking or cycling as part of Team CWNN and keep our choirs singing!
First up, have you always wanted to take on the ultimate runner's challenge? Well, this year we've secured a charity place in the London Marathon on Sunday 3rd October 2021 and we want to offer it to you, awesome supporter!
But how do we decide who should get our free charity spot?
This is your chance to get creative... We want you to tell us why you want to run the marathon in support of CWNN in 150 words or less. You could write us a poem, record us a video or even serenade us with why you deserve the spot! And don't forget to tell us how much you think you could raise to support our choirs.
To submit a written application: Simply use the form at the bottom of the page, or if you're up for making a bit more of a song and dance about it (literally) you can WhatsApp us a video entry on 07979 445021 - don't forget to tell us who you are! The best answer (written, recorded, sang - whatever) wins! Simple.
To cover our costs and support our choirs we are asking for a minuimum fundraising target of £2,000
General entries for the London Marathon are now closed, so this might be your last chance to secure a place. We'll let the successful runner know by Monday 8th March - so get your entries into us by Midnight on Sunday 7th March! Best of luck!
Next, could you take on a 10k for our choirs? Well, we have a few places in this year's Vitality London 10k running on Bank Holiday Monday 31st May 2021!
This awesome event offers runners of all abilities the opportunity to enjoy the fun and excitement of a mass participation event in a safe, socially distanced way. If you'd like to join Team CWNN for this one you could take it on as a gentle jog, a brisk walk or be really tearing up the pavements after your next PB!
To sign up for the Vitality London 10k: Simply drop us an email to email@example.com by Midnight Friday 19th March, but don't dawdle! On this one places are limited so we will be awarding spots on a first come first served basis.
Fundraising: For this event, we're asking for a minimum fundraising target of £250. Of course, there's no maximium fundraising limit, so if you think you can raise thousands for Team CWNN we'll be right behind you! Good luck!
Finally, are you dreaming of cycling outside your 'local area'? How about taking on the iconic London to Paris route? This year we've teamed up with cycling event experts TFA to offer you the chance to make your miles really count in this epic ride: 17 - 19 September 2021
Joining the ride: If this is the challenge for you, your friends, your family or maybe even your whole work squad, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll then register your place with the good folks at TFA who will be on hand to answer all your training, travel and accommodation questions ahead of the trip, as well as keeping you safe while guiding you through the ride on 17th - 19th September 2021.
Deadline for signing up: If you want to take on this incredible cycle, you'll need to drop us a line by Midnight on the 31st March! This should give you plenty of time to follow TFA's training guide plus a good amount of time to fundraise ahead of the event.
Fundraising: On this one we ask that each rider aims to raise at least £2,000 for our choirs. This is to cover the cost of each place on the ride including; three nights' accommodation (Friday 17th - Sun 19th), food & drink Fri-Sun, plus breakfast on Saturday after the event, overnight ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe on Friday 17th September, 24/7 support from the TFA team, bicycle roadside repairs (not including parts), return to London from Paris and transportation of your bike back to London. (Phew!)
This ride could be a once in a lifetime journey, something you've always wanted to tick off your list or a chance to literally get back in the saddle with a real and exciting goal at the end of your training. But above all, like all of this year's challenge events, it's a chance for you to be a real hero in the name of our choirs. We can't wait to hear from you!
