You've heard of balloon races, but did you know about virtual balloon races? They're a brilliant, environmentally friendly alternative, as well as being heaps of fun! And you can even customise and decorate your virtual balloons!

Our virtual balloon race will be taking place in Kenya, over the Great Rift Valley, on Saturday 14 November. Each virtual balloon will follow a simulated flight pattern based on live weather conditions in Kenya, such as wind speed and temperature. The balloon which travels the furthest in 7 days wins a Christmas hamper! 

Each balloon costs just £3 and you can buy as many as you like - it's fun for all ages, and as it's such a cool way to learn more about geography and meteorology it's great for teachers, parents and grandparents to do with children.


Taking part is so simple!

1. Buy your virtual balloons here.

2. Name and decorate your virtual balloon. Perhaps you could even name a balloon after each member of your family!

3. Track the progress of your virtual balloons online on the day of the race - if one of yours goes the furthest, you'll win a Christmas hamper!


Our aim is to sell 1,622 balloons – that's one for every person who will be diagnosed with lymphoma in the UK during November.


Buy your balloons today!


Thank you so much for your support. With your help we can make sure no one has to face lymphoma alone.
