Will you join #Team36 and help us raise awareness and vital funds for everyone affected by a genetic bleeding disorder? We have come up with some 36 themed challenges that you can do at home (or close by) there is something for everyone!
More than 36,000 men, women and children in the UK have a diagnosed bleeding disorder, and the number rises every year. To mark this number and raise both awareness of rare bleeding disorders and funds to help us ensure every person living with a bleeding disorder is supported, we have launched the 36 challenge.
Choose a new challenge, or take on something you love and complete 36 (or 360, 3600, and any variation of those numbers) of whatever you choose. You can take on a challenge as an individual or within a team of friends, family or colleagues, following social distancing and other current restrictions.
Whatever you do, join us for this virtual challenge and make a difference for people living with a bleeding disorder in the UK.
How it works:
Choose your challenge, nothing is too big, too small or too silly: walking, running, cycling, baking, singing or knitting – anything that is close to your heart!
Decide your 36 goal: it could be 36 minutes, hours or days, involve 36 miles or laps, or 36 repetitions.
Pick a timeframe that suits you: complete it all in one go, spread it over three months, or anything in between.
Choose your fundraising target: There is no minimum amount and every penny will help us with our work in the bleeding community. To make you more competitive and also show our appreciation for your support we will send a little something from our range of merchandise to anyone who raises £360 or more.
