Step 2 – Start fundraising and send your sponsorship to MND Scotland as your raise it.

Step 3 – 80% of your minimum sponsorship must be received by MND Scotland no later than 10 weeks before departure. MND Scotland will then be in the position to pay the challenge balance.

Step 4 – The remaining 20% of your minimum sponsorship should be sent to MND Scotland no later than 4 weeks following your return from the challenge.

Option B – Self Funding

This option enables you to fund the entire challenge yourself, which means you do not have to commit to raising a set sponsorship. Although no fundraising is required, we do strongly encourage you to raise as much as you can.
