Forthcoming events:

LibFest: 29 June 2019

LibFest

This fantastic community event is held in memory of Liberty Baker and SeeSaw is grateful to be one of three charities supported by the organisers. 

This year's event, taking place at The Leys in Witney, will begin with the traditional 5k fun-run. Families will be able to enjoy several attractions that reflect Liberty's love of sport and music. Live dance acts and an open mic stage are in the pipeline, as is a new set of activities in the festival's children's zone.


Swinford Toll Bridge Bucket Collection - 26 August 2019 (Bank Hol Mon)

SeeSaw is returning to the Swinford Toll Bridge on the 26th August for a charity takeover! Teams of volunteers will collect cash from drivers between 9am and 5pm on that day. It's a lot of fun and last year raised an incredible £2,222 for SeeSaw! Contact Lucy if you'd like to get involved as a volunteer this year. 


Oxford Half Marathon - 13 October 2019

Oxford Half

2018 was our best year yet at the Oxford Half Marathon. We had over 40 runners sign up to take on the 13.1 mile fast and flat route which takes in some of Oxford's most iconic sights. Together our 'SeeSaw Stars' raised over £15,000 for SeeSaw!

Could this be the challenge for you in 2019? When you run for SeeSaw we're with you every step of the way. We're on hand with training tips, fundraising advice and ideas, and we're there on the day to cheer you on to the finish line.

 Firewalk: 1 November 2019

SeeSaw is teaming up with other local charities to host an incredible Firewalk this November.

Firewalking shows us the vastness of our own human potential, shifting the energy of fear into the energy of growth. The bed of fire is usually between 8 and 12 feet in length, and the temperature of the embers can reach 1200Fahrenheit. Contact Jane to find out more about this incredible challenge!

 

 

If you're looking for a brilliant cycling challenge for 2018 then why not take on Bike Oxford in support of SeeSaw? Bike Oxford is a day of marked rides of 25, 50 and 80 miles starting and finishing at Oxford University Rugby Club on Iffley Road, and taking in the best scenery of Oxford and the surrounding countryside.
