Our Story

The Marathon des Sables is ranked by the Discovery Channel
as the toughest footrace on earth. The MdS is a multi-day ‘ultra-marathon’ or‘ultra’ run across the Sahara Desert in six days over a course of between 150 and 156 (254km) miles. Keep up to date with all my progress here http://jamesking261087.wix.com/underthesun 

With just over 1,000 runners taking part, my goal will be to finish within the top 250 (overall) and in the top 50 on the final race day.
It's a massive challenge that will push me to my very limits, both physically and mentally, requiring complete commitment over a 14 month training period.

As well as the relentless training schedule, my toughest challenge over the next 14 months, and the one in which I will need the most support in in order to achieve is to raise over £10,000 for a truly amazing charity. So please dig deep and give as much as you can, and in turn I will push as hard as I can to compete!

Got any Questions

See our FAQs or visit the Help Centre for more resources

Is there any cost to the challenger or to the cause?

No, GoRaise is completely free to use for challengers and causes. The only cost is to the retailer

Why do the retailers make a donation?

When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.

Will we end up paying more for goods and services?

No, you are not charged anything extra. You buy directly from supplier websites accessed via GoRaise so you pay the same as anyone else. In fact – our users are able to take advantage of many exclusive offers and promotions so you will often find a better deal with suppliers through GoRaise. If you have a preferred supplier not currently listed on GoRaise.co.uk, please let us know and we will help them sign up.

Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?

There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.

How much of the donation does GoRaise take?

We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.

Which causes can we raise money for?

You can support any good cause, from small community groups, national charities or your own company foundations. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added very easily for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, company foundations, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
