Live fundraising events are back with a bang

Our 2022 fundraising calendar is up and running – all we need is you!

On your marks, get set, GO! Yes, live fundraising events are back with a bang for 2022.

Now’s your chance to take part in some of the most exciting and daring charity challenges around AND raise vital funds to help people living with chest, heart and stroke conditions.

After the stop-start, in-out coronavirus restrictions of the last two years, 2022 is an opportunity for all of us to get back to doing what we love most – daring ourselves in the great outdoors to go further, push harder and raise more for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.

And what a line-up of events we have for you all! If you can’t take part yourself, make sure to tell your family and friends and see if they are up for the challenge.

Get your team together and tackle one of our incredible fundraising challenges in 2022.

Run, walk, or climb your way to fundraising goals

If running is your jam, we’ve got you covered. Challenge yourself to the ultimate during the Edinburgh Marathon Festival, which features 11 races over two days, including the marathon itself, 10k, 5k and team relay. Get the kids involved in the junior races, too.

There are events across Scotland to suit runners of all abilities, from the Men’s 10k in Glasgow to the scenic Duthie Daunder and Deeside Stride in Aberdeen; Run Garioch in Inverurie, the Great Scottish Run in Glasgow and the Loch Ness Marathon Festival in one of the most beautiful parts of the land.

In September, the Banchory Beast Race is a 10k obstacle course like no other, pushing participants to their muddy limits. Or maybe you fancy being one of 50,000 pounding the streets of the UK’s capital in the London Marathon in October with Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland emblazoned on your chest.

Sign up for the Culloden Run and challenge yourself to one of two distances around one of the most historic sites in Scotland this October.

You can also feel a swell of national pride striding out with family, friends and colleagues on a Kiltwalk. Choose from events in Glasgow on April 24, Aberdeen on May 29, Dundee on August 21 and Edinburgh on September 18. Or sign up to the Virtual Kiltwalk on October 7-9.

With events of all types, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy.

Got a burning ambition to go to extremes to help those living with our conditions? Walk the Flames has your name all over it! Get fired up for one of the incredible fire walks taking place across Scotland this year.

Reach your peak with the May Munro Challenge when we throw down the gauntlet for participants to climb one of Scotland’s 270 Munros – mountains more than 3,000ft. You can also complete this challenge virtually.

If conquering mighty mountains is meat and drink to you, why not sign up to the 3 Peaks Challenge and climb the three highest mountains in the UK in one incredible weekend? Or be guided by the stars during a magical Ben Nevis Midnight Trek before watching the sun rise over the beautiful West Highlands.

Our amazing 2022 calendar of fundraising events will culminate in the glamorous St Andrew’s Charity Ball in Edinburgh on November 25.

Whatever fundraising challenge you take on, every single penny raised in Scotland stays here to help people with chest, heart and stroke conditions do more than survive. Your efforts help them really live life to the full.
