Fundraising

By fundraising for Finding Your Feet you’re joining the extraordinary network of people committed to improving the life to those affected by amputation or limb absence.

So you’d like to fundraise for us?  If it wasn’t for our amazing fundraisers, we wouldn’t be able to support the amputee community the way we do, so from all on the FYF team and all our Troopers – THANK YOU!

We will do everything we can to support your fundraising efforts. Have a look at the information below and if there’s anything else we can do, just get in touch with Nikki.

Have a look at some of our suggestions below if you haven’t decided what you’d like to do.  Or how about something more adventurous?  What about climbing Kilimanjaro or Everest?  Doing a skydive?  Abseil?  Zip slide?  Wing walk?  What about a night in a haunted house?  Or conquer a fear and hold a tarantula?

There are also lots of organised events all over the UK and further afield which you can take part in.  Walks, runs, treks, climbs, cycles, duathlons, triathlons etc.  Check out 2 FYF favourites and speak to Lee at Breaking Strain Events or Ricky at Inspire Alpine for some inspiration.
