Sports Events for Charity Fund Raising
Over the years, millions of pounds have been raised for charities by runners, cyclists and other people taking up the challenge of a Sports Tours International event such as the ING New York City Marathon or the Etape du Tour, as a way of pushing themselves and raising money for good causes. We are proud to have strong relationships with many charities and continue to offer our events as a great way of helping others.
The way in which you can raise money for charity varies. You can select an event to focus on and raise the money yourself. Or you can contact one of the charities listed below and they can tell you the best way of raising money for them. Whatever way you decide to enter the event, you will be proud to have helped someone else and achieved the goals of raising the funds for charity and finishing the event. For more information, please contact one of the charities listed or contact ourselves for more advice and information.
