Fundraising heroes

Societi fundraisers are awesome! Want to make a difference and get involved? Go on.....We need you!

Some of our BEST and most CREATIVE fundraisers are young people who have decided, “……you know what? I’m going to make a difference!”

And the ideas our teenage supporters come up with – well, they are just amazing! It’s people like YOU who are getting involved right now to help us get Kawasaki Disease known and stop it being a lifelong problem for more young people.

So – what sort of stuff can you do? That’s easy — pretty much anything! We have fundraisers who raise money by being sponsored to run, bike, game (oh yeah!), swim and hold ‘Non-Uniform’ days at their schools, or ‘Wear Red’ days at school or work. They’ve held and join in online quizzes, taken part in cake-bake-offs, put forward our charity as one that their whole school fundraises for throughout a term or year…. and tonnes, tonnes more.

Got your own ideas? BRILLIANT!  Get in touch and we’ll help you get going if you like! Or….. just crack on! We’re here if you need us.

Need some inspiration? NO PROBLEM! Here’s some articles on amazing young people who have organised fundraising and awareness events for Societi. Have a look through to see what they’ve been doing. They inspire us 🙂 and we think they’ll inspire you too!

If you’d like to be a fundraising hero for Societi, speaking to your family or school about what you might do is a great place to start. Or you can get in touch with us and we’ll help wherever we can!


I feel as though now is the perfect opportunity to not only raise money for the wonderful charity “Societi” but to also help raise awareness and give back to the people who well and truly helped me.

Gemma's Two Castles Run


14 year old Societi supporter Gemma had planned to take part in the Two Castles event in 2020 to raise money for Societi. The 10k race is run between two of England’s most beautiful Castles, Warwick and Kenilworth. Such a fantastic way to raise funds for Societi!

Unfortunately the event had to be cancelled, as so many events were during 2020! But **unstoppable** Gemma made the decision to run the challenging distance of 10k anyway – whilst keeping in line with social distancing restrictions of course!

Gemma raised an AMAZING amount of money – £500!!! Such an INCREDIBLE achievement and from one of our youngest supporters ⭐️ Gemma is an absolute SUPERSTAR ⭐️ We’re so grateful for her resilience and determination, making a such HUGE effort for tiny hearts affected by Kawasaki Disease.


These amazing funds raised will allow us to continue raising awareness of Kawasaki Disease – the leading cause of acquired heart disease in UK children.

During the first lockdown I became involved in a gaming community some of which streamed for charity. I was spending a LOT of time gaming and decided to put it to good use! Raising money for research into Kawasaki Disease was the obvious choice. It was great seeing the money grow during the stream. Lots of my gaming friends joined in to keep me company although it was pretty lonely at 3am!!! I was really proud of myself for completing the challenge and raising some money doing something I think I am good at.

Ethan's 24 Hour Gaming Fundraiser

As Fundraising activities go, we thought we had pretty much seen them all! But oh no, 15-year-old Ethan caught us out after taking part in a 24 hour live streaming event on his Xbox – to raise money for Kawasaki Disease awareness!

Ethan planned to start playing his Xbox on a Saturday morning at 10am and he didn’t stop until 10am on Sunday morning. AMAZING!

Luckily for Ethan his wonderful mum and fabulous Societi supporter Debbie, kept him hydrated and fed during the event.

Every pound raised helps us to protect tiny hearts from Kawasaki Disease – and with an impressive total of £209 that’s £1 raised every 4 minutes by Ethan!! A staggering achievement from one of our youngest fundraisers!

Ethan – we think you’re INCREDIBLE! Thank you for gaming so hard… for so long!!

Kawasaki Disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in UK children and TOGETHER, with support like Ethan’s we will change that! This is a fabulous idea for a fundraiser, and we are just so grateful to our wonderful supporters, who come up with such great ideas. Ethan – we are inspired!

Lincoln Minster School

You don’t have to go it alone if you want to raise money for Societi. Raising awareness and funds with a group of people can be A LOT of fun!

There are many, many schools and colleges too that have supported Societi by holding events.

The pic here is the amazing Lincoln Minster School who held a ‘Wear Red’ day for Kawasaki Disease awareness raising huge amounts of Kawasaki Disease awareness, not to mention their fabulous fundraising too. We’re so grateful to everyone who was involved!

There are lots of different ways you can raise awareness and funds for Kawasaki Disease with your school, college, youth club, sports team or community group. We have loads of resources available to help you plan an awareness day or fundraiser – and we’ll always try to help out where we can.
