Breaking Strain Events
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Family Support Trust would love you to help them support those who help us all: Firefighters and their families, when in need.
In September 2019 the Trust launched their first annual “Steptember” event and would love you to take part. Registration is just £19 and includes an amazaing bespoke medal. We have tailor-made three distances so that the satisfaction of completing the event can be achieved by our youngest and oldest supporters, as well as those of a more athletic persuasion!
All three events are virtual and can be completed at your own pace; they can be done in a day (if you feel fit enough!) but can also be completed by totting the mileage up over the whole month of September. The most important aspects are enjoyment, satisfaction, getting moving and some fundraising to support an absolutely brilliant cause.
Due to Covid-19, all charities are struggling as their pipeline to fundraising events has dried up due to restriction on hosting live events. As a result the Trust is offering two entry options in order to allow you to make the choice of where your entry fee goes.
1. On completion of your distance you will receive a finisher's gift. The charity receives 33.95% of your entry fee. The remainder is pent on financial transaction fees, management fees, the gift itself and postage and packaging.
2. On entry the charity will receive the equivalent cash equivalent of your finisher's gift. This means that the charity receives 67.74% of your entry fee even before any fundraising.
