Get the whole family by taking part in 20 for 20!
20 for 20 is a collaborative campaign raising funds and awareness for 20 cancer charities and highlighting the effects of COVID-19 on people affected by cancer. Just commit to raising £20 (or maybe even £200) in 20 days any way you like!
Ask your friends and family to sponsor you to take part - we recommend setting up a JustGiving page to collect online donations easily and safely, and it will help you keep track of the money all your hard work is raising. Don't forget to let everyone know how the money raised will help - did you know that £20 could help pay for an hour of dedicated helpline support, enabling our experienced team to be there for patients, carers and anyone affected by lymphoma? We have a handy list of facts just like that here
We think this is a brilliant excuse to get creative, and could be heaps of fun for little ones and grown-ups too. You could make this a fitness challenge by running or cycling 20 miles in 20 days, or you could make each day a different challenge.
We have come up with 20 suggestions which you can use if you like, but feel free to have fun with this and do whatever excites you most!
