About

Take on your own 7in7 EPIC Challenge


We are calling on people to take on a swimming, cycling or running/walking challenge which takes you out of your comfort zone and pushes you to go further than ever before. The challenges will be self-managed and we have provided a selection of options in terms of distances as part of the registration process. We are asking people to sign-up for their own 7-day EPIC Challenge to raise as much money for charity as possible. 


Sign-up as an individual or a team for this unique community event and challenge yourself to do something you have not done before, raise money for two amazing charities and inspire others to be active and take on new challenges.


We have provided a selection of swimming, cycling, running, walking and triathlon distances to select as your 7-day EPIC Challenge. If a distance is not listed then please email hello@thisisepic.gg to request a distance to be added to the challenge options. 


On sign-up you will be given the option of buying branded merchandise for your epic challenge.


Once registered, you will be automatically set-up with an online fundraising page which we encourage you to share with as many people as possible. We are aiming to raise £20,000 through The FCG EPIC Week. Please make sure you share your sponsorship details with as many people as possible.


The event is raising money for two great Guernsey based charities, This Is EPIC and Guernsey Mind. All money raised will be going directly to the following projects:


This Is EPIC


This Is EPIC will use the money raised to implement a new project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. 10 new savings and loans groups will be started which will impact more than 2000 people as well as a positive impact on the wider communities. 


The DRC has been chosen as there is a big problem with integrating women who have been the victims of sexual assault and this project will work with them to empower them to become financially independent and support their families and provide services for the community. Without this they would be ostracised by the community and left to fend for themselves, which would be almost impossible. 


Guernsey Mind


Guernsey Mind will use the funds raised to invest into a community project to provide support services for the mental health of adults with Autism and Asperger’s. Guernsey Mind will increase the hours of a person working for the charity already and train them specifically to provide support in this area. 


They will also work with Autism Guernsey to make sure they provide the best possible service. Often people with these conditions get treated for either the communication difficulty or the mental health condition. However, there is a complex dynamic between the two, and the more support a person receives for their mental health the less they will need to access specialist services. The funds raised will enable Guernsey Mind to run the service for an initial 2 years as part of their Community in Mind project.
