The generosity of supporters like you gives International Medical Corps the resources we need to deliver lifesaving assistance to communities affected by disasters, conflict and poverty.
One of the best ways to support communities in need of our help is to take part in a fundraising event, in the UK or overseas, on behalf of International Medical Corps.
Taking part in a marathon, half marathon, 10K or 5K run on behalf International Medical Corps is a fantastic way to raise funds for our important work.
As we strive to keep our fundraising costs as low as possible, to ensure the maximum amount of funds goes to supporting communities most in need, we don’t pay to guarantee places in these events. In most cases you can sign up to any of the thousands of races taking place around the country every month.
Just let us know and we’ll provide everything you need to start fundraising for International Medical Corps
Dr Lesley Hayward, of Haxby near York, is taking part in five fundraising events this year in a bid to raise funds for the vital work of International Medical Corps.
The events include the 26-mile Rome Marathon, the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge, the Northumberland Coastal run, the Jane Tomlinson York 10k and the 138-mile Coast to Coast cycle challenge.
Dr Hayward said:
“It started at the beginning of the year when I decided to do something for charity and I couldn’t decide which event to do – so I thought I would do them all. I thought – if you are trying to raise money you have to do something to attract peoples’ attention.
I like what the International Medical Corps does to provide treatment and medicine. They do not just put money into a country that can then disappear into its pockets. You can also specify a priority where you money goes – I chose famine in Africa. It’s a great charity and a small amount of money goes a long way.”
“I am just an ordinary person – I am not a super athlete – just a normal person who likes exercise”
Here is the poster we designed for Dr Hayward to promote her fundraising.
