Sporting Events

The Beatson Pebble Appeal organises events, but in addition to these you can fundraise by taking part in an Open Challenge; an organised event in which you can choose who to support.

One of our loyal fundraisers, Ian Rutherford from Largs, has raised thousands of pounds for Cancer Sciences by taking part in the Dublin, Amsterdam and Brussels Marathons.

A list of great open challenge events can be found here:
