Have you got your own place in a challenge event?

We are welcoming supporters to select The Big Issue Foundation as their charity of choice on all challenge and sporting events. Whether it’s your local 10k run, an abseil, or a marathon – we would love to have you join us on Team TBIF.

If you have applied and succeeded in securing your own place via the organisers of an event, and have decided you would like to raise funds on behalf of The Big Issue Foundation for your challenge, please let us know via our web form here.

Our events team will be on hand to provide personal fundraising advice in regards to your challenge. We can provide you with everything you need to make it easy to fundraise for TBIF, alongside a unique TBIF branded top for your event.

Currently our supporters are doing a range of events – one supporter is taking part in the Great Bristol 10k, with another running in the Great Birmingham Half Marathon. We even have a supporter taking on the Pembroke Castle Abseil! Anything is possible – as long as your place is confirmed with the event organisers, we would love to have you on Team TBIF.

This weekend, Jonny and Nicola are taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon for TBIF. Nicola also ran for us in the London Marathon, after securing her own place in the ballot last October.

“I'm thinking ahead to pulling on the TBIF vest, knowing that I will be helping to make a big difference to the lives of vulnerable people across the country empowered by the fantastic work of TBIF.” Jonny, Own Place participant
