Bespoke Virtual Balloon Races

Raise funds for Shine by entering our next virtual balloon race!

Buying a balloon is simple and fun, and as all our races are virtual, online and interactive they are environmentally friendly too!

What do your staff get out of it? They can...

  • Personalise their balloon by choosing from a range of shapes, colours, and patterns, and by uploading your logo or photo and a message
  • Share the link to the race on Twitter and encourage your network to 'pledge support' to boost your balloon's resistance!
  • Track balloons via the online race page
  • Get race updates via Twitter
  • Pledge support to boost a balloon’s resistance!

All this AND they'll be supporting a great cause, helping thousands of individuals affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus, and their families, in local communities across the country.

Sounds great - let's go! 

Or design your own…

Bored of the same old fundraisers in the workplace? Launch your organisation’s very own bespoke Virtual Balloon Race to raise money for Shine and boost the profile of your company!

How does it work? Simply decide...

  1. When you would like your race to run? Perhaps tie it in with a special anniversary, a product launch, or opening of a new site?
  2. Where you would like your race to launch? Your head office, Downing Street, or even The Whitehouse?!
  3. Who will you invite to buy a balloon? Staff, clients - maybe create some healthy competition between branches and a prize for the balloon that travels the furthest...

When you hold a bespoke race for your friends, family, colleagues or community group, you can choose the starting price of your balloons and we can also create ‘offers’ for multiple purchases (buy 5 get 5 free, etc). It's your race, so you decide, and we will send you a unique URL link to your very own race to share, so that you can invite your network or staff to buy a balloon via email or Twitter.
