What is the Gold Challenge?
A new and unique charity challenge in which participants aim to try as many Olympic and Paralympic sports as they can by the end of 2012 and raise money for charity.
You can do anything from fencing, to boxing, swimming, or even sailing and badminton. Enter as an individual or as part of a team in which the activities are shared out amongst team members.
Will you join thousands of people in the Gold Challenge and raise money for St Dunstan’s and the vital work that it does?
My uncle is a St Dunstaner and I know what a tremendous difference St Dunstan’s has made to his life. I’m looking forward to running a marathon to give something back, as a family we fully support St Dunstan’s.
