Find out more Springboard launches £30k fundraising challenge

Springboard launches £30k fundraising challenge, encouraging people to move more this November, with the support of Ade Adepitan and Mark Foster.

Would you go the extra mile to help support unemployed people in crisis and poverty get into work? How about 30 miles?! This November, complete 30 miles over the 30 days of November to raise £30k for Springboard in the #303030 challenge:

GB Paralympic Gold medalist, Ade Adepitan, is a fan of the campaign and commented:

“I’m looking forward to seeing lots of people cover 30 miles in November to support a great charity. I’m a huge supporter of the work that Springboard do – helping people who are unemployed or have been made redundant to upskill and improve their job prospects. It’s so prevalent right now! Whether you do a mile a day or finish your 30 miles in the first week, the sponsorship you generate will be going to a brilliant cause.”

Help celebrate Springboard’s 30th anniversary year and raise funds to help thousands of people across the UK. Run, walk, swim, cycle, push or come up with your own ways to cover your 30 miles. The beauty of this challenge is that it can be done at times to suit you and you don’t need any special equipment to take part. You can be part of something special with lots of other people, all with a combined goal, without having to be physically near each other.

Former World Champion Swimmer, Mark Foster, has praised the flexibility of the challenge:

“This challenge is great because, as well as supporting a brilliant charity, you can mix up your exercise throughout the month to achieve your 30 mile goal. You don’t need to be an athlete- everybody can get involved, including kids cycling to school or just taking a morning walk everyday with a coffee!”

Springboard help people to overcome barriers to employment, build confidence and improve on or gain new skills through training, mentoring, CV workshops and interview support, helping people to retain jobs and start careers in hospitality and tourism – futureproofing the talent pipeline as these industries heal and rebuild.
