We are delighted to introduce Regain’s exciting new fundraising event for 2021, Go the Distance!

Supporters and beneficiaries alike will unite online to Go the Distance and raise the vital funds needed for us to continue supporting tetraplegics across the UK.

How to Go the Distance for Regain

Go the Distance is a do-it-yourself fundraising event. Simply:

  1. Sign up on the Regain website – registration will open shortly after Easter.
  2.  Select to walk, run, cycle or swim.
  3. Complete one of three set distances (bronze, silver or gold) over a one-month period, from the 1st – 30th June 2021.
  4. Please complete your challenge and submit your final distance to us by Wednesday 30th June 2021.


Key things to remember:

Don’t worry, you don’t have to complete your distance all in one go. You can take several days, a couple of weekends or spread it out over a few weeks, as long as you complete it by the 30th June 2021.

Please gain sponsorship for your challenge, with all of the proceeds coming to support Regain’s work. In return, all entrants will receive a Go the Distance medal as a thank you for helping us fund more tetraplegics to lead a more active life.
