Be a fundraising hero

By signing up to brave the Beast Race, you’re doing something amazing!

Charity places for the event are free and we’re asking all our fundraising heroes to promise to raise at least £150 in sponsorship. We will provide all the support you need to help you meet and beat your fundraising goal.

Every penny you raise will go towards helping someone in Scotland rebuild their life and get back to doing the things that matter to them when they return home from hospital with a chest, heart or stroke condition.

You’ll be helping people like Chris, whose life completely changed when he suffered a serious stroke in 2020.

“I was lonely and scared, not knowing if I would see my family again.”

“I was the most active person, a real hands-on dad and husband. I was a footballer and a football coach but stroke has left me paralysed on my left-hand side and now I have to use a wheelchair.

“But I haven’t had to go through all of this on my own. When I got out of hospital after nine months, Gillian from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland was there for me, and she did so much to help me adapt to my new life.

“A stroke is a scary thing to happen to anyone but being supported by Gillian and a charity like CHSS takes a lot of that fear away. Everyone needs a Gillian in their life after stroke.”

By fundraising at the Beast Race, you’ll be helping fund our vital support services so more people across Scotland can get the support they need when they return home from hospital.
