About 7events

working together to make a difference...
We’re a growing team of friends, all with one common goal – to help our local community.

A group of friends are pulling together to complete a series of challenges and events to hopefully raise awareness and lots of money for two Leicester based charities. The first campaign included 24 hours in the gym, 13 miles up and over muddy obstacles, 10k run through Cannock Chase, 100 miles on a bike and 26 miles at the London Marathon – not everyone’s idea of fun!

From June 2017 onwards, a team of local, likeminded and incredibly active people will be participating in 7 different events to raise as much as possible for two different charities all based in or around Leicester. And you can take part too – whether you’re a regular at the gym, a local business or just someone willing to help their local community, there’s something for you.

We are purchasing equipment for these charities and organisations. They vary from making moving and exercising in a hydro pool comfortable for people with MSK, to use of Helen Webb House to take part in complimentary therapies for people suffering cancer.
