Sponsored events

Support BMS by running, cycling, singing, baking, dancing, cleaning… or anything else your friends, family and church will support you to do!

Sponsored events are a great way to raise money for the life-transforming work of BMS World Mission. They can also end up becoming a valuable local outreach!

From baking Syrian cakes for a church cake sale to raise money for Syrian refugees, to cycling 100 miles in support of the BMS-supported hospital in Chad, we know that you are willing to go above and beyond to help us on our mission to transform one million lives by 2020. And we are so thankful.

Want some inspiration? Need some advice? Here are some ideas to get you started

  • Run to raise money for BMS. Many towns hold marathons and half-marathons – for a full list of upcoming running events click here
  • Are you partnered with a BMS mission worker? Why not ask them what some of the biggest challenges they or the people they serve face? Having to walk for miles every day for water? You could get sponsored to ditch the car and only get around by walking for a day/week. Limited food supplies? You could get sponsored to live on rice and beans for a weekend.
  • Keen cyclist? Or, even better, hate cycling? You could do a sponsored bike ride.
  • Get your church youth group involved in raising money for BMS! You could do a sponsored silence, wash cars, hold a bake sale, auction your talents to the rest of your church…
