Introducing our 2019 Partners: CHAS
Over the next 2 weeks, we're going to be introducing our charity partners for 2019! You'll be able to fundraise for any of these charities if you're taking part one of our 2019 trekking or marathon challenges.
We've been really proud to work with Children's Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) for our hugely successful Everest Base Camp trek up in Aberdeen this year - and CHAS are back again in 2019 as one of our charity partners!
This means that if you're participating in one of our trekking or marathon challenges from up in Scotland next year, you'll be able to raise vital funds for CHAS.
Knowing that your child may die before you do, is the unthinkable reality that thousands of families across Scotland have to cope with every day. Each week, three children die in Scotland from an incurable condition.
Children’s Hospices Across Scotland – better known as CHAS - is dedicated to supporting every single member of these families as they face the toughest challenge of their lives.
They are committed to making sure that no matter how short their time together may be, it is a time filled with happiness and fun.
Meet your charity rep!
Sarah is Head of Community Fundraising at CHAS and is about to enter her tenth year with the charity, having started as a Fundraising Administrative Assistant back in 2009!
Before that, Sarah was in the University of St Andrews Charities Campaign from 2005-2008 where she loved her time as collections coordinator and vice-chair.
Sarah will be looking after all our participants on CHAS challenges next year, supporting your fundraising for CHAS.
We're really excited to have Children's Hospices Across Scotland on board as a charity partner, and we hope you'll consider supporting them by joining a challenge in 2019!
