Run your own event

Run your own fundraising event to help fight muscle disease.

Get fundraising!

Your generosity allows Myositis UK to keep fighting rare muscle disease. Big or small, organise your own fundraising event to help support those affected by myositis.

From sponsored abseils to Santa dashes, to car boot sales to sponsored head shaves, there are so many things you could do – we’ve seen it all!

While the Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing, we kindly ask you do not organise any fundraising events that go against the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.

If you’d like to fundraise for Myositis UK during this time, we recommend getting involved in the 2.6 Challenge.

How we can help

We can usually support you by providing collection boxes, flyers, t-shirts, balloons, posters and, if you are near to our office in Southampton, we can loan our large banners too.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we will do our best to support your fundraising efforts but may not be able to provide the above. Please get in touch with us to discuss what is possible. 

The charity is registered with both Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving so you can easily set up your fundraising page with either of these sites.

We can also help promote your event on our social media channels – simply contact us or visit our dedicated Team Muscle fundraising Facebook page.

Why support Myositis UK? 

We are a very small charity and do not receive any funding from the government, National Lottery, or pharmaceutical grants. We rely on donations and fundraising to sustain the charity and fund vital research.  

Your support will help us keep up the fight against rare muscle disease and strive for a future free from all forms of myositis.
