Find out how organisation skills, creative thinking, tenacity and teamwork have helped Challengers meet their fundraising goals
Katie Lee Brown – Costa Rica – October 2015
I collected sponsorship by going round and knocking on houses with a sponsorship form and also just asking people at college if they would sponsor me. I also wrote to local Rotary Clubs and they kindly sponsored.
The hardest part was the weather! We had it booked way before I actually did it, but the weather took a turn and it was too windy so we had to postpone it. I was devastated because I was so happy the day had finally come when I could overcome my fear of heights, to have it postponed just dragged it out that little bit more.
I think if I was to do something like this again, I’d probably splatter posters all over towns and even cities just to let everyone know that I’m actually doing something good for a fundraising event and I’m not just sitting on my bottom on a sofa trying to scrape money together; I’m actually working hard and so is my mum!
