The GUGB journey so far…

In our milestone 5th anniversary year, Get Up and Give Back is gearing up for our most ambitious challenge yet.

With the aim of increasing physical and mental wellbeing in Property Entrepreneurs and raising awareness and funds to help our 5 chosen charities, we're proud to announce our 5 Challenges in 5 Weeks for 5 Years of GUGB. (Hope we got enough 5’s in there)

We remain committed to our mission of raising awareness and combating these prevalent health issues while rallying support from our dedicated participants and sponsors.

This year, our five challenges that embody our commitment to physical and mental well-being are;

  • Walking - whether 10k a day or 500,000 steps in 5 weeks.

  • Running - from couch to 5k, 10k or half marathon! Lace up your running shoes and join us as we race towards healthier hearts and cancer-free futures.

  • Hiking - Embark on a journey through nature with us as we trek towards a world where cancer is but a memory, conquering the challenges of the Snowdon Summit, Yorkshire 3 Peaks, and the National 3 Peaks along the way.

  • Cycling - Pedal for a purpose as we ride to raise awareness and funds for life-saving research and support services.

  • Swimming - Dive into action and make a splash for health by participating in our swimming challenge.

This year, we're proud to support five incredible charities:

  • Shay's Smiles: Dedicated to supporting families of children diagnosed with GBM, Shay's Smiles provides financial assistance for genetic testing, specialist doctors, and care, while also funding crucial research efforts aimed at finding a cure.
  • Shine Cancer Support: Recognizing the unique challenges faced by individuals diagnosed with cancer in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, Shine Cancer Support offers comprehensive support before, during, and after treatment.
  • The Cancer Support Centre: Offering assistance to both individuals who have received a cancer diagnosis and their support networks, The Cancer Support Centre provides help whenever needed, ensuring no one faces cancer alone.
  • The Eve Appeal: As the leading UK national charity focusing on gynaecological cancers, The Eve Appeal funds research and raises awareness to improve prevention, early detection, and treatment of these cancers.
  • UCare: Committed to enhancing the treatment and care of cancer patients, UCare focuses on advancing research and education initiatives to improve outcomes for individuals battling cancer.

Join us as we celebrate five years of Get Up and Give Back and embark on our 5 Challenges in 5 Weeks for 5 Years of Get Up Give Back, Cardio vs Cancer.

Together, we can make a difference in the fight against cancer.

2023 - "Hike Against Hunger" - Mind, Body and Soul!

In April 2022, before the price rises, it was estimated that 5.3 million people had to choose between eating and heating. Food bank usage has risen by nearly 100% since 2007.

To combat the issue of food poverty in the UK, GUGB 2023 is supporting three splendid charities, in mental, physical and commitment challenges:

Magic Breakfast is a national organisation that has been running for over two decades and provides schools with up to 200,000 breakfasts a day. Their mission is simple; child hunger should never be a barrier to education.

The Tri Services Veterans Support Centre is a Stoke-based unit run by veterans, for veterans. They provide camaraderie, signposting and support along with 60,000 meals for veterans. They also "stood to", distributing 250,000 meals to the local community during the pandemic.

The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of 1,200 food banks. They provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

StrongMen and The Lucy Rayner Foundation provide life-changing and life-saving support in that critical moment of need to men and young people, we supported The Lucy Rayner Foundation to continue offering IMMEDIATE face-to-face counselling sessions for young people and TWELVE months of weekender retreats organised by StrongMen.

Even before COVID, homelessness has been a growing issue in the UK and it’s a very complex topic that is close to our hearts.

Buses 4 Homeless have a very unique and bespoke end to end solution. They provide accommodation, training and support from their unique yet established rehabilitation centre.
2020 Buses 4 Homeless – Raise the Roof

In 2020, we partnered with Buses 4 Homeless as we wanted to make a dent in the growing issue of homelessness around the UK however regrettably our events were cancelled due to Covid-19 and as such we were unable to complete our run.

Buses 4 Homeless is a low-cost holistic solution to this growing issue. By refurbishing decommissioned buses into purpose-built end to end facilities for Eating, Sleeping, Wellbeing and Learning we intend to make a dent in this growing issue by re-engaging homeless people back into the community.
