Merry Christmas from Skyline Do it for Charity

 

As 2015 draws to a close, now is the perfect time to look back and reflect on the great achievements and challenges you have all been apart of this year. Whether you are one of our amazing charities or an ambitious and determined supporter, this year has been so memorable because of you!!

The latest event we had is our Do it for Charity Text Santa Run in Victoria Park which was our BIGGEST Santa Run yet. This day was great as thousands of you donned your red suits and beards and ran either 5K or 10K for your chosen charity. It was a great day where charities and supporters came together and embraced the festive spirit with the extra special touches including our gospel choir, Santa’s Grotto and the Children’s Santa Run. An impressive £1 million was raised from this day – absolutely incredible! Another fun run that was a huge success in 2015 was our Superhero Run which was an amazing day in Regents Park. Fantastic amounts were raised for charity as you all participated in the fun run for your special heroes!

Our London to Brighton Cycle Ride is an event we always look forward to and this year we were graced with perfect weather which meant cycling into the finish line on Brighton beach front was that extra bit amazing! We would like to congratulate everyone who took on the 54 mile adventure to Brighton and raised vital funds for charities!

We have seen many great challenges take place this year such as our adventurous treks, from hiking through tough terrain to trekking through the hot sand of the Sahara Desert! Conquering the Great Wall of China and taking on the diverse landscapes of The Iceland Trek have all been highlights this year; where people from all over the world have been raising funds for many different amazing charities and they have embarked on these challenges of a lifetime together, making friends every step of the way! It has been incredible! We are very excited to announce we will be reintroducing our Peru Trek this year so don’t miss out on this once in life time challenge and grab your place!
