The FSI 10k Challenge - 6 July 2013
This amazing free event takes place in the UK every year in June/July, when the grounds of Thornbridge Hall (Derbyshire) are flung open to welcome small charities and their supporters. It’s a fundraiser and social event all in one, with free camping thrown in!
The weekend kicks off with the race on Saturday morning. You can run (or walk) a 4km or 10km route through the stunning Peak District National Park. Then spend the rest of the weekend chilling out in the grounds of Thornbridge Hall, catching up with and meeting new members of the Inti Wara Yassi family. There’s also a BBQ on Saturday evening and a garden party all day Sunday.
In 2012, team CIWY (right) managed to raise over £1,700 in sponsorship! You can help us make the 10k Challenge in 2013 even more successful, to register your interest please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or check our our facebook event page.
One of the best ways to raise money whilst having fun and possibly achieving a lifetime ambition is by doing a sponsored event, be it a Marathon, bike ride, walk, climb, bungee jump, whatever your event every penny you raise will support our work in Bolivia.

Dave Boyer teaches the 7th Grade at Kernersville Middle School, North Carolina, here's how he and his class got involved and supported CIWY:
"I am great friends with Crystal Ramsey who is a frequent volunteer at CIWY. She works with cats and is in vet school currently. Crystal came to my school in December to talk to my 115 students about CIWY. In honor of her visit we raised money to donate to CIWY. They took tremendous efforts to bringing in donations, recycling aluminum cans for money, talking to neighbors and the community about CIWY, sacrificing birthday and Christmas money, and other selfless acts to raise $2,300."

Even if you can’t get out to Bolivia to physically donate your time to Inti Wara Yassi, you could still donate your time through payroll giving. Payroll giving is a scheme that allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax-free basis to the UK registered charity of their choice – i.e. Friends of Inti Wara Yassi. Payroll giving donations are deducted before tax so, for each £1.00 you give, it will only cost you 80p (and if you are a higher-rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p).
Can you afford to donate one hour of your time? Contact your HR department for information on how to set it up.
