Weʼve raised £10,610 to donate to Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity, Eilidh’s Rainbow 🌈 and British Heart Foundation
- Hamilton, South Lanarkshire
- Funded on Friday, 11th October 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
After a hugely successful year of fundraising in 2018, we raised £3300 to be split between 3 charities by completing various sponsored team challenges throughout the year.
This year we don't plan on slowing down any and have another year of tough fitness challenges ahead to raise money for:
Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity
Eilidh’s Rainbow 🌈
British Heart Foundation
Our gym members come from a range of fitness backgrounds but the main thing we always do is encourage them to challenge themselves. There's no better feeling than achieving a goal you thought would be impossible when you set it...so with that in mind here are the events we have planned in 2019 (so far!)...
Bravehearts Fight Night 'THE HOMECOMING' in Hamilton Town Hall - Saturday 20th April
Bravehearts 'Scotsathlon' - Our own take on a triathlon where we swim 1.5 miles across Loch Lomond, walk/run Ben Lomond via Ptarmigan Ridge route and cycle 48 miles to rest and be thankful where we will set up camp for the night - Saturday 25th May
West Highland Way over 5 days - We couldn't advertise this beforehand as we were turning up at the start line to surprise one of our members who was doing the West Highland Way for her 50th Birthday so it had to stay top secret! (a great 5 days had by all involved and lots of sore feet) - 19th-24th June
Cycle from Bravehearts Boxing Gym to Mallaig leaving at midnight (159 miles) - Friday 26th-Saturday 27th July
Bravehearts 5/10k Races - Friday 6th August
The Ben Nevis Braveheart Triathlon - 1.2miles sea loch swim, 56 mile tough cycle (with lots of hills)...then a 13mile run to the summit of Ben Nevis and back - Saturday 14th September
Team climb up Ben Nevis - with a choice of the tourist track or to add in another Munro and across a ridge before climbing the last part of Ben Nevis (CMD arete route) - Saturday 21st September
Buachaille Etive Mor team hillwalk and camping overnight - Sunday 29th September

Thank you to each and every single person who donated or supported us throughout these challenges in one way or another! We have been able to purchase a cabinet that will enable the public to access our Defibrillator in an emergency by dialling 999 to get the code. Look out for it being installed on Low Waters Road, Hamilton! We will also be donating £3180 to each of our 3 charities, Eilidh's Rainbow, Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity and British Heart Foundation (Scotland) who are all very grateful for the support <3
