Millions of paralysed people worldwide don’t have the option to walk or to run or even to stand up but you can help change that this year. By signing up to Run in the Dark, you are joining a global community running, for those who dream to walk.

All of your donations and fundraising will support our charity partner Collaborative Cures to bring people together to cure paralysis in our lifetime.

Donate on Collaborative Cures’ website or click the Create Fundraiser button below to create a fundraising page on GivenGain.

Once you’ve set up your fundraising page, you can start on the fun stuff – personalising your page and sharing it with friends and family. Here are some tips to kickstart your fundraising.

  1. Set up your fundraising page on GivenGain and make sure to add a profile photo.
  2. Tell them why you’re doing it. Include a line about the cause you’re running for, so people understand your motivations and know where their money is going. E.g. “As darkness sweeps around the globe this November, I’ll be joining 25,000 people worldwide to Run in the Dark. Please support me as I raise funds for Collaborative Cures whose mission is to bring people together to cure paralysis in our lifetime.”
  3. Share the link with your family and friends across all your social media and communications platforms.
  4. Images and visuals work well, like a photo of you as you start a training session.
