Challenge yourself for Aspire
Aspire are looking for amazing people to take part in challenge events during 2019.

You can complete a challenge individually or organise a team of friends, family or colleagues to do something together. To help you make the most of your event we can offer:
- Lots of fundraising advice and support
- Team good luck messages and motivation
- Training tips
- An Aspire vest or t-shirt to wear on the day
