Get Active | The Salvation Army

CHALLENGE YOURSELF AND GET FIT FOR A REASON

From 5ks to your first ultra marathon, there’s an event out there for all fitness levels. Whether you’re walking, running, cycling or swimming, The Salvation Army has partnered with a range of events to make sure there’s something suitable for everyone.

Support the Salvos and add extra meaning to your fitness goals by using your challenge to raise funds to support those doing it tough.

Every year, the Salvos helps more than 1 million people struggling to get by and we need your help to keep our programs running. We work in areas of greatest need and our programs support people experiencing homelessness, family violence, financial stress, unemployment, and addiction.

We’ve listed some of the most popular events where you can fundraise for the Salvos.

It’s easy to get started. Simply register on the event’s website and create an online fundraising page with The Salvation Army as your charity of choice. A dedicated fundraising coordinator will be in touch to help you through the fundraising process so you can focus your time on training!
