During the first Covid lockdown Run for Heroes created the 5km running challenge asking participants to Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5.

After the success of the original fundraiser, which raised more than £7 million for NHS Charities, Run for Heroes is launching its latest challenge by turning the month of May into a celebration of physical activity with their 5kMay campaign – and Beat SCAD supporters can join in to raise money for us.

The idea is to do a 5km (walk, run, swim or roll – it’s up to you!), donate £5 to Beat SCAD and nominate 5 people to do their own 5km challenge and donate to us as well.

You can take part on your own or as a group and we’d love all our supporters to take part to help us fund more research into SCAD.

There’s more info on our JustGiving page where you can sign up between now and the end of April, ready for your 5km challenge during May.
