Looking for a challenge? Like to support WVI’s work in the

What will your challenge be this year? Looking to push beyond your comfort zone? There are
more outdoor adventures available than ever before, from marathons, triathlons,
trans-continental cycle races and long distance swims, to climbing mountains,
trekking jungles or tackling obstacle courses submerged in mud. Or maybe a
gentler sponsored walk is more your thing.

However you decide to break free and try something new, please raise awareness and funds for WVI and get your team/company at work to join you.  Below are some ideas.
When you are ready you can click here to fundraise. 

How about getting into the thick of it with a Tough Mudder?

There are a number of venues offering a variety of distances and obstacles. All of them will ensure you are fully covered in mud and enjoy every minute of it.
A team of Colchester Zoo keepers are Running for Big Cats in the Tough Mudder Midlands Half on Sat 13th May 2017. - More events here.

Walk4Wildlife: School children are attempting to break the Guinness™ World Record for a mass sponsored walk in May, in order to raise funds for different wildlife charities, including WVI. 

Children and accompanying adults need to be walking (anywhere; classroom, playground, up hills or down dales) by 2.15pm on 19th May. 

Find out how you can take part here.  If you have school-age children, do encourage their schools to join in – and ask them to consider supporting WVI! The current record is 231,635 people. Imagine if everyone raised just £1!

Perhaps walking is your thing? Walk4Wildlife have arranged ‘The Big 5’ sponsored walks, which offer everything from walking to a picnic on the South Downs, to completing 20miles around Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common (London), or following a 50k route around Snowdonia, solving riddles and finding clues as you go (you can drive some of it), to a very civilised (over 2 days) Yorkshire 3 Peaks walk, or even a night walk around the New Forest.

Which one will you go for? For more see the Walk4Wildlife website.

Calling all cyclists! Fancy cycling 54 miles through some of the most spectacular scenery in the South West? WVI has a number of places in the London-Brighton Cycle ride on Sunday 17th September. 

Again Colchester Zoo keepers are leading the way by persuading a group of friends to sign up for this challenge and we have 10 more spaces available.

A warm up for London to Paris, or even a warm down from the Transcontinental Race or just a reunion for cyclist friends? If so, then this could be for you. Sign up here.
