Charity Challenges

Personal challenges are always a popular way of fundraising. Whether you’re taking part in a marathon, skydive, abseil or trek, your support will help to raise vital funds for Oracle’s research projects and help to raise Oracle’s public profile.

Planning to take part in a charity challenge for Oracle? You can set up your fundraising page online via either Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving. It will cost you nothing and is very simple to set up.

Let us know about your challenge event by emailing our Head of Fundraising, Emma.
