Great Strides 25

Register for free!

Help us celebrate our 25 years of supporting Edinburgh's Royal Hospital for Sick Children by taking part in our new virtual fundraising event 

For our 'virtual' event you can set you own goal to achieve in your home, at your club or as a family by running, swimming, walking or cycling for 25 minutes, 25 hours or even for 25 days – you set the challenge! Complete your activity before 25 August and see how much can you raise for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity. 

What do you need to do?

  • Think of a challenge that you would like to achieve around the theme of ‘25’. You could set yourself the goal of walking for 25 miles, running 25 minutes for 25 days in a row, 25 minutes of bouncing on a trampoline or your football team could play for 25 hours! 
  • Register yourself or your team on the Great Strides website, describe your challenge within the 'My Story' section and personalise your fundraising page with photos.
  • Get fundraising! Share your page with friends, family and colleagues.
  • Update your page to let your supporters know how you're progressing or post photos of your challenge. If you have fitness tracking apps Fitbit, Strava or MapMyFitness you can use these to record your activity and link it to your page.
  • Complete your challenge by 25 August and celebrate your fundraising achievement knowing you'll have help to transform the experiences of children and young people in hospital.
