Take part in a sporting event for Antibiotic Research UK

Why fundraise for ANTRUK?

Antibiotic-resistant infections can affect anyone, and they can be devastating. For an increasing number of people, routine procedures are becoming life-changing experiences. Imagine finding that a simple infected wound cannot be treated with the usual antibiotics, and that it could cause you to become disabled, or even die. This is the reality people with antibiotic-resistant infections face.

We’re committed to funding research to stop antibiotic resistance in its tracks. We are dedicated to supporting everyone affected by antibiotic-resistant infections, now and into the future. We will educate the public, so we can all play our part in stopping this health catastrophe.

It’s important work, but it costs money. We’re grateful for every penny we receive, and we will ensure it’s put to good use.

Antibiotic-resistant infections kill people every day. Thank you for supporting our work.

Take on your own challenge in your own time

You don’t need to give up on your dreams of taking on a sporting event such as running a marathon or a 10k or cycling 100 miles just because the big events aren’t happening.

It is easier than ever to take on a virtual sporting challenge and with Strava now linking directly to your Just Giving page you can update your supporters on your distances. We can send you a t-shirt, cycling top or running vest and you can make it feel like a real event with friends and family cheering you on along the route.

Alison who walked a marathon up and down her street to raise money for Antibiotic Research UK says “I wanted to do something to support Antibiotic Research UK and celebrate 10 years since I finished cancer treatment for a rare blood cancer so I figured this was my year to do a marathon. The neighbours were all great cheering me on and cheering me up when it got difficult. 10 years ago I was also in lockdown as I was in isolation in hospital – antibiotics saved my life as I was so vulnerable to infection. I was so pleased to complete the marathon and I managed to raise loads of money for charity too.”
