Be our hero! Fundraise for MDS UK

About 20for20

The #20for20 Campaign Still Needs You! The campaign has been extended till the 31st of December

MDS UK is taking part in the 20for20 Campaign with other rare cancer charities impacted by the Covid19 pandemic. The campaign is now in full swing and we are doing very well!

Simply complete one “20” themed challenge a day for 20 days between now and December 31st and encourage friends and family to sponsor you. This means you can start now if you wish! All funds you raise will go directly to MDS UK!

The challenges DO NOT have to be fitness based. We have 35 participants doing everything from cooking to painting to poetry! (See “20for20 challenge ideas” below for more suggestions and “Participants” to see what everyone’s doing.)

Please join us if you can. There’s no minimum financial target and we need as many participants as possible to help ensure that “cancer doesn’t stop for Covid!”
