Come on brothers, get going!

I’m posting this on behalf of The Ribat Institute, as they’re still look for men to take part in their Military Assault Course Fundraiser…


Military Assault Course Fundraiser

May Bank Holiday, Monday 5 May 2014



What is it?

Following on from the One Man Challenge last year, The Ribat Institute is pleased to present the The One Team Challenge for 2014. This is a charity fundraiser assault course for MEN only. Simply enter a team of 5 men and race against each other to complete a challenging assault course in Dorking, Surrey. Test your physical and mental strength against others across the UK and test your mettle.

How easy is it?

Our volunteers did a test run recently and pictures are uploaded here. If these flabby guys can struggle through it, anyone can!

Why the fundraiser?

The fundraiser will support of the work of the Ribat Institute, which stretches far and wide and includes projects including:

  • facilitating educational classes for adults and children
  • organising a 1-2-1 orphan sponsorship program in Sierra Leone
  • running a boys and girls sports club
  • providing free, fresh and organic fruit and vegetables grown in our local community allotment
  • supporting old aged pensioners in Woking
  • providing free, fresh, nutritious and healthy home cooked meals for the York Road project homeless shelter in Woking
  • generating funds for the next stage of expanding the services to the community, providing all existing and future services at a new purpose build community centre, Ribat House

How do I raise funds?

Be creative! But here are few ideas to get you going:

  1. Print off the attached sponsorship form and ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you.
  2. Point your donors to our main fundraising page here: Link
  3. Set up your own JustGiving page at and spread the word by email, text, Facebook and Twitter. You can then link your page to our ‘Team’ page here.
  4. Donate any amount by text. OTCR99 £10 to 70070 (To donate another amount simply change the amount in the text message)

Each participant should aim to raise at least £200 in sponsorship.

What’s in it for me?!
