Elaine Aronson, timeoutdoors' Challenges Editor, outlines the appeal of taking on a tough physical challenge for a good cause.
We all like to be challenged. That sense of achievement that can only come from surmounting obstacles and realising goals is what makes us feel alive. The difficulty and severity of some challenges, however, means that we sometimes need an extra push to see us triumphantly over the line.
What better way, then, to provide that added boost than the knowledge that we are putting ourselves through considerable strain to raise money for a good cause. When donations to a charity close to your heart are dependent on success, you will find the inner strength to run that extra yard, swim that extra stroke and climb that extra foot. Challenges for charity come in all shapes and sizes and you can find further information below on the following:
