20for20 Challenge – Cancer doesn’t stop for Covid

 

AMMF has joined forces with 19 other less common cancer charities to create a unique and exciting 20-day challenge. The 20for20 Challenge aim is to raise funds to make up the shortfall in our income due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Funds that are vital to enable us to continue with our work.

The pandemic has led to delays to cancer diagnosis and treatment, which could lead to as many as 35,000 additional deaths in the UK. With more than 55,000 cancer patients in England waiting for key tests, the practical support and information provided by rare cancer charities such as AMMF, is needed now more than ever. As the need for our services increases, the donations that we depend upon have decreased.

Launch date – Sunday 20 September 2020

We’re asking you to join in and complete a challenge each day for 20 days to raise funds for AMMF. To help kick-start your challenge, you can choose from a set of ready-made 20for20 calendars, where you can complete the daily challenge and we even have a blank one, for you to fill in with your own set of challenges if you wish. And we haven’t forgotten our younger supporters, there is a special children’s challenge calendar too!

The challenges can be anything from jogging or cycling for 20 minutes, to making and sending a postcard to 20 friends or baking 20 treats for family and friends so whether you’re 4 or 94 there is something for everyone…
