I’m already doing a charity run, walk or cycle – can I support DEBRA?

Yes! If you’ve secured your own place in an event then just get in touch with us and we can provide you with a pack to kick start your fundraising.

Why is the fundraising target for some events higher than others?

Sought after events will often have a higher fundraising target because the cost to the charity of buying the place is higher than in other events.

How old do I have to be to take part in an event?

Most physical challenges will have an age restriction of 18. However, there are a number of mini marathons and other events which specifically cater for charity fundraisers under 18. Please contact us if you’d like further information.

What happens if I don’t raise the full suggested fundraising amount?

If you don’t reach the suggested amount then we will not ask you to pay the rest. However, we set the amount based on what will cover our costs and also help towards providing care and finding a cure for those living with EB, so please keep this in mind.
