THE DANNY GREEN FUND

"18 CHALLENGE"

This year, Danny's would have been celebrating his 18th Birthday, so we are going all out and want to make it a special one in his memory !!

For a start, we have organised 3 different events:

Danny would be 18

This will be held on Danny's birthday, Wednesday the 6th February and we are asking all schools, businesses, clubs to show their support by asking for you to wear something GREEN and donate £1.

In celebration of Danny’s 18th Birthday, starting on 6th February through to 6th March, you can register your own challenge which can be anything sport-related, eg swimming 18 lengths, running 18 miles, 18 gym sessions, 18 fitness classes, 18 miles walking, biking, anything from as little as 18 times walking to school in a month up to 180 miles running - anything sport-related, based around the number 18.

Your children can take part too! And if you’re successful, you will get a prestigious medal and certificate from The Danny Green Fund, as a reward for all your hard work!

Step 1

Choose your challenge and simply complete the Group Registration Form (school, businesses etc) or the Individual Registration Form and pay the registration fee of £18. You can also download a Sponsorship Form if required or you can set up a JustGiving page on our JustGiving team's page. There is no minimum sponsorship amount but the more you are able to raise the better!

Step 2

Once you’re registered, you’ll have your chosen time frame to cover your chosen challenge, wherever you like, whenever you like.

Step 3

You will receive your medal and certificate from The Danny Green Fund!
