Are you ready? DPT Charity partners with Run for Heroes for a new challenge!

The pandemic has reminded us that the smallest things can make the biggest impact and there’s no better example of that than Run for Heroes challenge - Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5 - during the first lockdown. What started as a plan to raise £5,000 for NHS charities at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic went completely viral. It raised more than £7 million for NHS Charities.

After the success of the original fundraiser, the nation is once again being encouraged to get active in the name of charity as lockdown restrictions continue to ease. Run for Heroes is launching its latest challenge by turning the month of May into a celebration of physical activity with their 5kMay campaign. Everyone is invited to take part, including DPT Charity supporters. As the name suggests, it’s all about getting fit and hitting that 5km target. It’s not just about running though - you could walk, roll, skip or even swim your 5km if you wish! All that matters is getting your body moving and raising vital funds.

What you waiting for? Take part either as a group or on your own, nominate 5 and donate to DPT Charity in May! Find out more.
