Event: London to Paris Cycle

Date: 12th-16th September 2018
Location: London to Paris
Sponsorship: £1,600 (£99 registration fee) Sign up externally Sign up here.

Why choose London to Paris?

Don’t just take our word for it, read what Charlotte had to say:

“If you’re looking for a fun and challenging experience to participate in to raise funds for the Trust then I can highly recommend signing up for the London to Paris cycling challenge! The 300 mile bike ride takes place over four days and departs from Crystal Palace, London finishing at the Eiffel Tower, Paris. I really enjoyed the whole experience; this challenge is by no means an easy one but everyone bands together for support and with some basic training is achievable for all taking part. It was a privilege to undertake this trip on behalf of people who can no longer manage activities such as this one in the hope that the money raised will go towards vital research and support for these people affected. If you are in any doubt about doing a challenge, my advice is just do it! You will not regret this experience of a lifetime!”


Event: London to Brighton Cycle Ride

Date: Sunday, 16th September, 2018
Location: London to Brighton
Sponsorship: £150 Sign up externally Sign up here.

Why choose London to Brighton?

This mass-participation one day cycle ride takes a route from Clapham Common in London
to Madeira Drive on the Brighton sea front. So not only a ride with some stunning views but great for riders of all abilities in an informal setting.

Don’t just take our word for it – this is what Jeremy who did the ride in 2017 had to say –

“My mother was the one who put my name down for
the event and never having done anything like it I
was unsure whether I would actually go through with
it. However, I am extremely glad that I completed it
as firstly, my target was greatly surpassed by the
fantastic support of my friends and family, raising
money for a great cause gave me a real sense of
achievement and pride. On the day of the cycle, to
my surprise I really enjoyed it, the atmosphere, the
views and the feeling of accomplishment as you
cycled through the cheering crowds along Brighton
beach”

Event: Skydiving

Date: Various
Location: Various
Sponsorship: £395 sign up here.

Why take part in a Skydive?

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below.

Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph!

Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.

Imagine you can do this and support people with MSA at the same time. All we ask you to do is raise £395 for the Trust and you can jump for FREE! For more information check out our Parachuting Information Pack or click here to sign up.
