  • Run for Min - If you are an avid runner, or a newbie you could take part in your local runs and be sponsored for something that you already do for fun!

  • Walk for Min - If running simply isn't your thing, why not be sponsored to walk a certain amount of steps in a month. Get sponsored to get fit!

  • Swim for Min - could you be sponsored to swim 10 miles for Min?

  • Games night - Whether it is a game of cards or a pub quiz, there are lots of opportunities to raise money for MIN while having fun!

  • Sweepstakes - Could you pledge to donate a percentage of your winnings?

  • Bake sale - This is a great opportunity for whatever setting you are in. You could arrange a sale in the office, or invite the girls around for an afternoon tea.

  • Tuck shop - arrange an array of snacks for the office, or your local play group and ask for donations to be made.

  • Brunch at work – depending on your workspace, bring in breakfast (pancakes, cereals, toast, smoothies, juices) and charge for a plate.

  • Give it up - If you have a bad habit that you would love to give up, such as smoking or drinking, let us be the extra push you need! You could donate the money you save every month to us!
