Fundraise your way

Fundraising is a fun and creative way to make a big impact. By creating and hosting your own fundraising event, you can raise crucial funds to help us create a healthier community. The beauty of donating to IHMRI is that we put the control back into your hands, ensuring your fundraising efforts go on to support a cause that you champion. Have an idea for an event? We would love to hear from you! By running your own event, you can involve your family, friends and colleagues whilst raising awareness around the illness or disease close to your heart. In addition to this, you will receive support and guidance from IHMRI’s fundraising team.
