Bob's 40 for 40

Help us to celebrate the 40 years since that memorable day when Bob and Aldaniti achieved their fairytale win at Aintree in 1981. We are asking people to support the cause and have some fun with Bob's 40For40 Challenge.

So what is the challenge?

With this additional 'at home' time that lockdown gives us (and our kids!), set yourself your own challenge which involves the number 40 and ask people to sponsor you to raise money for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust.

Some ideas from us to help:*

  • Cycle 40km every day for 4 days
  • Run 40 miles in 40 hours, or in 40 days!
  • Row 40 miles in 40 hours
  • Walk 40 miles in 40 hours
  • Bake 40 cakes and sell each for 40p for the Trust
  • Ride 40 miles (or get the kids to trot over 40 poles!)
  • Swim 40 lengths every day for 4 days
  • Make 40 masks and sell each for 40p or 400p for the Trust!

Be as creative as you like!

All we ask is that you aim to raise a minimum of £40 and hopefully £400 or even £4000!

Send us some photos of you participating in your challenge for our Bob's 40For40 Gallery. Every participant will receive a special Bob Champion '40For40' Rosette!
