#FightEB 100km Challenge

Take on the #FightEB Challenge by completing 100km throughout August!  

You can choose whether you run, walk, cycle or wheel the distance throughout the month and help to raise vital awareness for the EB Community at the same time!  

You can choose to take this feat on individually or with your friends and family to collectively reach the goal!  

The world may be changing, but the pain that EB sufferers face everyday remains the same. You can help ensure that the EB Community are supported when they need it most by joining to #FightEB. 

You will receive a free welcome pack when you join and access to our challenger community group on Facebook.

How does it work?

  • Complete 100km throughout August – you can run, walk, cycle, skip 
  • Fundraise £115 - enough to help a DEBRA Member for half a year through Community Support services
  • Help us to be there for the EB Community when they need it most  

Sounds great, how do I register?

Head over to www.fighteb.org.uk to sign up by creating your JustGiving page. From there you'll be able to request your free t-shirt and join the challenger community group on Facebook.

How can I reach my fundraising target?

The Community Support Team work tirelessly to provide help, practically and emotionally, by being there for EB Families to lean on. You can make sure every family is supported by trying out some of the different fundraising tasks below to reach your target.

Just Giving Page

Once you have created your page – and linked it to the 100km Challenge – the best way to fundraise is to keep sharing it online!  Keeping your page up-to-date with the progress you’re making, pictures of the things you see on your exercise and sharing a personal note behind why you are doing this are all great additions to your page and will make it more engaging for potential donors!

Hosting a Virtual Event

For many people, holding a virtual event might be the best option currently. There are lots of things you can do from home:

  • Host an Online Quiz
  • Hold a sweepstake
  • Bingo Night

Getting Crafty

  • If you have spent time making new crafts recently you could sell them online 
  • Making cupcakes and doing a door-to-door deliveries for your neighbours
  • If you fancy a change you could dye your hair a crazy colour or just shave it all off!
