Fundraising is a key part of every charity's work. ICUsteps is run entirely by volunteers so all the money we raise goes straight to helping meet our goals of supporting patients and relatives, highlighting the problems they can face following a period of critical illness and helping medical staff improve the treatment and support given both during and following a critical illness.
If you'd like to help us through arranging a sponsored event, your support would be very gratefully received and if we can help you to help us, then please get in touch with us.
Corporate sponsorship can also be a great source of support so if your company's looking for a charity to support, please bear us in mind.
Thank you for your help and support.
Suzanne's marathon endeavour
On 23 April 2017, Suzanne Bench will be running her third London marathon. Is if that wasn't enough, she's going on in July, with husband Geoff, to undertake Ride 100, a hundred mile bike race to make it a truly marathon endeavour.
Suzanne has been an ICU nurse and critical care lecturer for many years and we're delighted that she's chosen to undertake these epic endurance events to raise funds for ICUsteps. You can show your support and sponsor Suzanne on her fundraising page.
Karen's Color Run
Just six months after surviving critical illness - and under the close, watchful eye of her physiotherapist, Karen Diver and a team of friends from Warrington will be taking on the Color Run in Manchester of 5th July, raising sponsorship for ICUsteps to support other intensive care survivors.
You can read more about Karen's story, the challenge of the Color Run and sponsor Karen on her fundraising page. Good luck Karen!
