Join the Big Step Challenge
Our annual Fundraiser – The Big Step Challenge – takes place every July. You can got it solo or grab some friends and family and challenge tourself to take 110,000 steps during birth trauma Awareness week. That’s one step for every family impacted by birth-related trauma in Australia each year.
If getting active isn’t your thing, then take the challenge your way. Read 110,000 words, bake 110 cakes, knit 110,000 stitches or challenge yourself to do something you love for 110,000 seconds. It doesn’t matter what your BIG Step Challenge is, as long as you step forward for safer births and better healing with us.
A few MORE ideas
Get the Gang Together for Comfort in a cup.
Who can resist a cuppa and cake with friends, especially for a good cause? A great event to run at home or in your local community space. You could even partner with your local cafe and get them on board.
Host a High Tea or Picnic.
A picnic in the park or in your garden can be lots of fun, especially if you have children coming along. Ask for a donation to come along, or sell drinks and snacks to raise funds.
Organise a Fun Fitness Event.
Run, walk, wheel, swim, toddle or crawl for birth trauma, raising money out in the fresh air is always fun! This really is one for the whole family to get involved in!
Set a Physical Challenge.
You could ask for sponsorship or ask people to donate to join you in a physical challenge such as a walk or dance-a-thon. This could be a great way to highlight physical injuries.
Run a Raffle.
If you want to raise funds, but can’t commit to putting on an event, why not try a raffle? Sell tickets at work, at the school gate, to your friends and family – anywhere really! Try contacting local businesses to see if any are willing to donate prizes.
