Teenage Cancer Trust

"We featured our 'Skydive for Stephen' challenge in the timeoutdoors newsletter and on the website and have received 50 enquiries and 5 sign-ups. We are very satisfied with the return on investment from the promotions over the last year which have included website listings, a leaderboard banner and a newsletter feature which have resulted in over 200 leads."

Emily Fitzwater, Challenge Events Manager

World Cancer Research Fund UK

"Of the 86 leads we've received so far since joining in December, we’ve filled our 5 places for the Great North Run, recruited 8 runners for the Royal Parks Half and 1 runner each for the Berlin and Brighton Marathon, so we’re really pleased with the conversion rate! We’re now concentrating on converting our 40 leads for our Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge."
