ARE you looking for a new challenge? Blesma, the national charity for all limbless Service men and women, their widows and dependants, is looking for enthusiastic fundraisers to take on a multitude of challenging events throughout 2016.

Whatever your ability or experience, there are events 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.

Upcoming UK events include:

  • Tough Guy challenge
  • Bear Grylls’ Survival Race
  • Colour runs
  • Marathons and half marathons
  • Bungee jumping
  • Skydiving
  • The London Triathlon.

International events include trekking the Great Wall of China or the Sahara Desert, London2Paris 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 fee 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, said: “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!”
