UCARE Annual Charity Golf Day
Thursday 16 September 2021
We have dared to book our annual charity golf day at Studley Wood Golf Club on September 16th 2021.
We look forward to seeing old friends and welcome new ones.
Run for Heroes
Led by a social media campaign and promoted through press and media announcements, the virtual challenge will span the whole month of May.
Members of the public will be asked to complete 5K in whatever way they can – whether it’s run, roll, walk, cycle, swim, skate or even skip – then donate a minimum of £5 to one of the charities that have signed-up, finally nominating five friends to carry on the awesome fundraising trend!
Captain Tom 100
Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May 2021
Everyone is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom's birthday weekend. It's so simple.
Hair Today Gone Tomorrow
Have you got a shaggy dog story to share?
We have been living through strange times being isolated from friends and family for many weeks. During that time one certainty has been that our hair keeps growing. Many will be looking forward to that first visit to the hairdresser or barbers, or even considering a home haircut!
Could we ask you to donate the equivalent of 10% of your hair cut fee or any amount of your choice to UCARE.
Let's have fun too, send us your update a before and after photo for us to share on the page.
Cancer doesn't stop during lockdown, neither do the anxieties of lockdown for people with cancer, whether it is the delay of operations and treatments or the restrictions of shielding themselves due to their vulnerability, many are living through incredibly stressful times.
We are hearing of the sad fact that people with cancer symptoms are also failing to go to their GP or hospital for fear of catching the virus so many new cancers are not being picked up early which is key to effective treatments.
Like many charities UCARE has had to cancel or postpone all our events and fundraisers but we are always looking at ways to come back even stronger and do what we do best in raising cancer awareness whilst supporting people in the aftermath of COVID 19.
With current restrictions on exercise if you are getting your hour in, why not use the time to enter our first ever virtual challenge where you can run, jog or walk.
You can take part whenever you like and at your own pace. All abilities are welcome, whether you’re a seasoned runner or a complete beginner.
Choose to take on a 5km, 10km, Half Marathon (13.1miles) or Marathon (26.2 miles) challenge at whatever pace suits you, in your own time. Run, jog or walk the distance in a day, a week, a month. You can do this in your garden or wherever you choose.
Here’s how you can take part:
- Sign up, pay a £20 registration fee on our Virtual Fun*raising JustGiving page.
Or create your own justgiving page donating the first £20 using this event link.
- All you need to do is keep a record of your distance and once you’ve completed your challenge send us a jpg photo as evidence. We will upload on our web site on a special page to say thank you. We will also use social media too so if you have a Twitter or Facebook page follow the links from our site to connect to us.
- You can send the link to your friends who can also donate to your challenge.
- Your £20 registration fee and any extra funds raised will support urological cancer research and raising awareness.
