There are hundreds of worthy charities that you can run for, many of whom will happily send you a pack with branded goodies so that you can let everyone know who you’re running for.
In fact, there are so many charities that it can be a little difficult at times to figure out who to raise money for. For many people their choice of charity will usually be determined by something that happens to them in their life. A family tragedy or an unexpected diagnosis are often the instigating event that cause a person to make their choice of charity.
Should you be lucky enough not to be struck by misfortune, then you may be at a loss when it comes to pick which cause to support. If you find yourself knocking on contemporary doors and posting your efforts online then you may want to find a charity that you’re particularly passionate for.
Here are the charities that we’re particularly fond of:
There aren’t enough charities promoting exercise, let alone exercise for the elderly, which is why we love Silver Fit so much. Silver Fit aims to get as many older people on their feet and moving as possible, and they do this by promoting free (or very cheap) activity sessions across the UK, giving thousands of older people across the UK the chance to get some much needed social time and exercise.

The Activity Alliance (formerly the English Federation of Disability Sport) has a super simple vision: Disabled people are active for life. It’s a vital one and something that’s so easy to get behind. Through enabling organisations to support individual disabled people, they’re hoping to see enhanced health amongst disabled people, not to mention a more equal society in which disabled people can achieve more.
