Team Blesma are looking for recruits to take part in 2016 challenge events!


Are you looking for a new challenge to kick off your new year? Team Blesma are looking for enthusiastic fundraisers to take on a multitude of challenging events throughout 2016.

Whatever your ability or experience, there are events available to suit everyone ranging from 10k runs to marathons, obstacle courses to bungee jumps. Fundraisers can take part individually or as a team in their chosen event.

Events coming up in 2016 across the UK include: Tough Guy challenge, Bear Grylls’ Survival Race, Color Runs, marathons, half marathons, bungee jumping, skydiving, the London Triathlon and many more. International events include trekking the Great Wall of China or the Sahara Desert, London 2 Paris cycle challenge and climbing Kilimanjaro.

Participants pay an entry fee and then work towards reaching their fundraising target, depending on the event. Included in the entry fee for each event is a Blesma t-shirt or vest, a fundraising pack full of tips for how to reach your target, on the day support and a certificate.

Zanika Fearon, Senior Community & Events Fundraising Executive at Blesma says:

“We are looking for people who fancy a new challenge, or for those seasoned fundraisers who want to do something a bit different to come and join Team Blesma to raise money for our injured veterans and have fun at the same time with like-minded people!”
