Dear Jack Supporter,
As you will be aware, we reluctantly cancelled this year’s Pack trip to New York. This has not stopped the good work of the charity. Due to the exceptionally hard work of previous Pack members and the generosity of our sponsors we have been able to continue our valuable work. We continue to sponsor (with key partner charities) a drug and treatment regime trial across three countries; the UK, USA & Germany. After the start of the Pandemic we pooled some our resources (£50,000) with two other charities to create a welfare fund for families affected by Neuroblastoma to assist with additional costs. Children who are having treatment for this virulent condition are often severely immuno-compromised creating difficulties for parents who wish to work. In addition to this we have just committed another $200,000 to a new research project. We now need to look at how we can ensure we are able to continue our work in these difficult times.
We would like to invite you to take part in the following challenge between the 31st October and 8th November.
If you accept the challenge we invite you to complete either a half marathon, a 39 mile cycle ride or a 1.3 mile swim. This will should be done in one session on any of the above dates. The target for fundraising for this will be £150. We will be setting up a Strava group where you can record your achievements and will get this group linked to CharityCheckout. We will support you by publicising this event on social media and creating a poster that can be printed locally. For those that complete the challenge and raise the target amount, there will be a commemorative medal awarded.
The event is open to anyone who wishes to participate, not just past or future pack members. Consider inviting colleagues or family members to participate. How you complete the challenge is up to you. It could be a solo effort, a force event with colleagues or in any format you want.
If you wish to participate please send your details to me on the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
