How do I register to complete this challenge?

The challenge is run by Action Challenge and you should register directly with them. During registration you can choose to fundraise for Help for Heroes. If you do, we will be told about you automatically and will be in touch. If you’ve already registered and have subsequently chosen to fundraise in aid of Help for Heroes, please click the ‘Use your own place’ button on the left to let us know.

Where does my fundraising go?

Half of your fundraising target (dependent on the distance you choose) needs to be received by the Charity no later than eight weeks before the challenge. This covers the cost of your participation in the challenge.

Anything you fundraise over this amount is the money that Help for Heroes can use to provide lifelong support to our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel, Veterans and their loved ones.

The Help for Heroes Events Team will work closely with you throughout your fundraising journey and share helpful tips and advice every step of the way. You will receive a comprehensive fundraising guide to help you get started, along with monthly fundraising ideas straight to your inbox!

It’s not just about sponsorship from friends and family. You can plan events throughout the build-up to your ride to help boost your fundraising total.
