Breast Cancer Campaign is organising Pedal It Pink - a women's 26.2-mile cycle ride in Exeter on 26 September with a fundraising target of £30,000. Those who do not want to cycle a marathon can opt for a half-marathon or the family 5km, open to men and children too.
Mike Hart, who won a rowing silver medal at the 1976 Olympics, and Dom Harlow, an employee at investment firm M&G Investments, punted the length of the Thames in 47 hours and 38 minutes. The pair have so far raised more than £1,000, which will go towards a new RNLI lifeboat, from the 124-mile journey.
A group of 24 soldiers took part in an event that involved pushing and pulling military vehicles around a 26.2-mile course in Afghanistan on 11 September. They want to raise a total of £3,000 for the British Limbless Ex-service Men's Association and St Dunstan's, which supports visually impaired ex-service personnel.
Jeans for Genes Day will take place on 1 October. Because it is the 15th anniversary of the event, the charity, which helps people affected by genetic disorders, has raised its fundraising target to £2.5m.
