If you sponsor a child in the country where your Muskathlon is taking place, you'll get the opportunity to meet them! See with your own eyes the incredible difference your sponsorship is making.

 

Fundraise with a difference

10 children sponsored 

Knowing the incredible impact one-to-one sponsorship has on children in poverty, we ask that you aim to find sponsors for 10 children. For every new sponsored child, your fundraising target will be reduced by £1,000. Your target starts at £10,000. That way, if you find sponsors for 10 children you’ve achieved your goal. Similarly, you could find 8 sponsors and £2,000 in donations and you’ve also reached the target! We have years of experience in fundraising so we’ll give you plenty of advice and tips.
