How to get started

Take a challenge for TASC, The Ambulance Staff Charity
Stage one

Choose an activity or challenge

Walking a set distance, doing 1,000 squats in a month, learning 100 words in a new language, swimming 60 miles, or even completing a wing walk – the possibilities are endless! Aim for something that you find interesting, fun, and challenging. Download our fundraising pack for lots of ideas and inspiration to help you get started!

Once you’ve picked your activity or challenge, choose the number of sessions you want to achieve or the date you would like to achieve your goal. For example:

  • Walk 15,000 steps every day for a month
  • Learn 100 words in sign language by 1st October

If you need some more inspiration, then visit the Let’s Do This website to see a list of physical challenges taking place across the UK.

Stage two

Set your fundraising target

Next, pick how much money you would like to try and raise for TASC and how you’re going to raise the funds. Many of our fundraisers like collecting donations online through a JustGiving page (our Fundraising Team can help you set your page up if you have any problems). You could also collect money on paper by downloading TASC’s sponsorship form.

Once you know how much and where you want to fundraise, let our Fundraising Team know by filling in the form at the bottom of this page.

Stage three

Start promoting your challenge

Once you have picked your challenge, fundraising target, and how you’re going to raise funds, you need to start promoting your challenge with your family, friends, and colleagues.

Many of our fundraisers find social media to be an incredibly powerful tool for their fundraising. If you do post on social media, don’t forget to tag TASC in your post so we can follow your progress and promote your challenge on our channels. Here are our social media details:

Enjoy your challenge

Finally, don’t forget to enjoy your challenge. Any funds you raise will help support the ambulance community in their time of need and TASC is very grateful for your support!

Here’s some advice from Cath and Kev who raised over £13,000 for TASC last year by walking the Cambrian Way in Wales:

“Social media was such a big thing for us and as soon as we started training, we were regularly posting video diaries to keep people updated and involved. We also ran raffles with prizes donated by our friends and colleagues, and local businesses with all funds going towards our total.”
