You can make a difference - fundraise for SafeLives

Fundraising for SafeLives is fun and rewarding. It can also be really empowering for survivors and those with friends and family affected by domestic abuse. Help us improve the UK’s response to domestic abuse, so no one has to face it alone.

Challenge yourself:

Run, cycle, walk and/or swim to help us end domestic abuse for good.  

Find an event in your area that is right for you. Find a challenge you want to take part in, sign up and then email (fundraising@safelives.org.uk) or call our fundraising team (0117 403 3220) to tell us all about it – we love to hear from you. We can support you throughout your fundraising journey, helping you set up a fundraising page and offering lots of tips and ideas about how to reach your target.

Running: Runner’s World have this big list of running events happening in the UK - from 5ks and fun runs to half and full marathons. With so many options to choose from, you'll get the running bug in no time! 

Each year SafeLives also has a number of guaranteed charity places in exciting races. In 2018 this included the AJ Bell London Triathlon and Royal Parks Half Marathon. We'll be releasing more info about our 2019 challenge events soon. 

Nobody should live in fear, it’s not acceptable and together we can make it stop. Join #TeamSafeLives today.
