Charity Work at Running Bear

Running Bear loves to support local races and fundraising for charity. In the last year, we have raised over £10,000 to support multiple causes across Britain. It is an integral part of our Bear Values to support our customer's fundraising for causes they deeply care about and organise our own races for charities that touch our hearts. You can learn more about our Sock Donation initiative here. To get involved with our next event stay tuned to our Running Bear Facebook page and Instagram.

Cheshire Dash for Brainwave - 28th August 2021

The Cheshire Dash for Brainwave is a cycling challenge to raise money for Brainwave, cycling 100 miles in one day through the Cheshire countryside, starting and finishing in Goostrey on Saturday 28th August.
Brainwave is a charity very close to our hearts and exists to help children with disabilities achieve greater independence by improving their mobility, communication skills and learning potential through various specialist therapies. The children they work with have a range of conditions, including autism, cerebral palsy and genetic disorders such as Down syndrome.

This is a 100% charity event…supported by Transforming Lives Foundation and Running Bear. The fundraising target is £200 per rider and £50 to enter. You'll receive total event support, food and drink throughout the event and a branded cycling jersey.

"Brainwave has been a remarkable support for our grandson Patrick, who has cerebral palsy. He loves to visit the centre in Warrington and would be on his bike to join the challenge if he could! I'm sure he'll be there to see you off"
Mike Marshall, founder of Transforming Lives
