Everyone loves sponsoring a challenge. There are no limits to this – from treks to boat races, we have seen it all!

Sign up to one of our charity places in local challenge events such as the Hackney Half Marathon in May, or the Shoreditch 10K in October, or purchase your own place at any other event and raise money for us. Our available events are listed below.

Fundraising does not end at sporting challenges – why not host a bake sale or a ticketed event in your community? Organise a quiz, raffle or silent auction for a fun fundraising activity!

If you are planning to fundraise for us, drop us an email at [email protected] so we can keep in touch and track your progress.

London to Brighton Cycle  - September 16th 2018


Join 4,000 cyclists on this mega 54-mile ride from the city to the coast. The spirit is 'taking part' not 'winning', so it's open to all cycling capabilities!

If you would like to cycle for Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest and help us raise money for essential community services, register here for £50. Once you're registered with the event, we're asking cyclists to fundraise a minimum of £150 - you can do this via JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving

The event is organised by our partner Do it for Charity. London to Brighton Cycle Ride covers a scenic route from south London to Madeira Drive on the Brighton seafront, where you'll enjoy some well-deserved celebrations in the London to Brighton event village by the sea. Whether you are an experienced rider or taking on your first cycling challenge, completing the event should be within your capabilities, as long as you are willing to put in some training first!
