Support SPEAR! Join in with 5k May!

Could you donate £5, walk, run, swim or roll & nominate five friends, classmates or colleagues to do the same during May?

If so, please donate to SPEAR & sign up for the Run For Heroes 5k May in support of SPEAR.

Run for Heroes is launching its latest challenge by turning the month of May into a celebration of physical activity with their 5k May campaign. Everyone is invited to take part, including SPEAR supporters. As the name suggests, it’s all about getting fit and hitting that 5km target. It’s not just about running though – you could walk, roll, skip or even swim your 5 kilometres if you wish! All that matters is getting your body moving and raising vital funds for a charity of your choosing.

SPEAR is partnering with Run For Heroes for 5k May, with participants encouraged to consider donating to combat homelessness after completing their challenge.

You can take part on your own or as a group, donate your £5 to SPEAR & sign up for updates, then nominate 5 friends or family members to complete their own 5km challenge.

Sign up to the challenge at www.runforheroes.org.uk now!

Sign up as an individual

Donating and signing up for 5k May is super simple. Enter your name and email address so we can send you the event information and a race pack beforehand.

If you’d prefer not to sign up – no problem, you can still participate. When May arrives, participate in a 5k of your choice (run, walk, roll, cycle, swim) and donate £5 to SPEAR here.

After you have participated and donated, upload a picture to your social media (remember to tag us so that we can share) and encourage your friends to take part too.

Plus, after you’ve donated you’ll unlock a digital goodie bag full of rewards and treats from the event’s brand partners. It’s our way of saying thank you!

Sign up as a team

Why not get your colleagues, school or sports club involved too? It’s as easy as ABC! Register your interest and we’ll send you all the event information you need to share with your team beforehand.

After you have signed your team up, you will receive a downloadable file that includes a social media pack that you can use to promote 5kMay across your channels. This is a great way to mobilise your colleagues or pupils to get active while raising money for a charity of your choice.

If you’d prefer not to sign up now, don’t worry you can still get a team together. When May arrives, encourage your team to participate in 5k, either together or virtually. Collect and donate £5 for each participant in your team or ask them to donate themselves.

Once you’ve donated, you’ll unlock a digital goodie bag full of rewards and treats from the event’s brand partners. It’s our way of saying thank you!

Upload a picture of your team afterwards on social (remembering to tag us) so we can give you a special shout out!

Teams include: corporates, charities, schools, universities and sports clubs.
