We do strongly encourage our supporters to choose to self-fund or to part-fund their challenge as this means that more of the money donated by your friends and family will go towards the work of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. You will find that your supporters will potentially donate more to your efforts knowing that the place is 100% self-funded too! 

If you chose either Option 1 or 2 then please be aware that your place will not be released by Ultra Challenges if you are below 50% of your target (this amount varies depending on the challenge and will be outlined on the website) 6 weeks before the event as this money raised will go towards covering the cost of the challenge.

If you are at that level of fundraising then the place is released to you and any remaining amount raised should be with us no more than 4 weeks after the challenge. If you have chosen Option 3 to self-fund your challenge then there is no minimum amount to raise.
