Hi everyone, I'm seriously considering signing up for this, sounds like good fun and raises money for Marie Curie Cancer Care: http://charityadventure.org.uk/CharityAdventureApp/amsterdame2008.aspx The only thing I am a bit concerned about is the fundraising (that is apart from my legs falling off)...How on earth do I raise £500? I know most charity rides have an even higher amount, but I have never done one before (or any other sponsored event that required you to raise anything more than 20 quid), and really can't think of how to do it...I don't think I know enough people and most of my friends haven't exactly got loads of spare cash, and even if I get people at work to sponsor me, I'm probably going to get a pound at at time of about 20 people. Obviously nowhere near enough... So, has anybody got any tips? Do I write to local businesses? Do bike shops sponsor such events? Where/how do I start? Don't want to put my name down, only to then realise I can't get the money together... Any help appreciated!!!
