5KMay! Run For Heroes with Live Music Now

We’re joining charities across the UK for the 5kMay challenge to raise money for Live Music Now, while having fun and getting active. Last year’s edition led by Run For Heroes captured the nation’s imagination, gave us something hopeful during lockdown and raised £7m for NHS Charities Together. This time, participants get to choose where their donations go, and we’d love you to choose Live Music Now. .

Taking part is easy:

  1. During the month of May, run, cycle, swim, roll, hop or crawl 5km.
  2. Donate £5 to Live Music Now via this link.
  3. Nominate 5 friends or family members to take part! Tag them on social media and use #5kMay to let people know you’ve done it.

Your donations will support our ongoing series of live-streamed  concerts  helping us to reach thousands of vulnerable people each week and provide joyful music experiences at a time when human connection and access to live music has been so limited by the pandemic.

Hannah from Oxford said: I loved taking part last year – it’s a nice easy way for anyone to feel good and do their bit. I know it’s only a matter of time before I get nominated again, so I’m getting in there early and nominating my friends to be heroes and support Live Music Now!

So if you’d like to get out in the sunshine, dust off the lockdown cobwebs and raise money to bring live music to those who have the least opportunity to experience it, sign up via the link below:
