On Saturday 14 November, we will be launching our first ever Lymphoma Action virtual balloon race! Our virtual balloons will set off across the Great Rift Valley, with each following a simulated flight pattern based on live weather conditions in Kenya. There is even a special prize in store for the balloon that travels the furthest in seven days!
Taking part is easy – simply purchase a balloon for £3 here. You can buy as many as you like, and you can even customise and decorate your virtual balloons! Our aim is for 1,622 balloons to set out on the race – one for every person in the UK who will receive a diagnosis of lymphoma in November.
“Our virtual balloon race is a really fun and interactive way to raise funds to support our work, as well as being environmentally friendly!” says Sarah Thorn, Community and Partnerships Manager at Lymphoma Action. “By purchasing a balloon, you will be helping us continue our work in providing vital support and information services for people affected by lymphoma. So don’t delay – buy your balloon today!”
