Time to Challenge Yourself and be Our Champion!

Jags fans…2019 is here and at this time there are so many opportunities for you to challenge yourself and do something AMAZING in the New Year for the club you love!

Last year saw the one and only Gerry Britton complete the Great Scottish Run and raise over £4000 of life changing sponsorship for our Frame Footballers. This year we’ll be launching campaigns for even more Challenge Yourself Champions with some of Thistle’s biggest names taking part, but this isn’t about them, this is about YOU!


So what is a Challenge Yourself Champion?

Here at PTCT we are delivering projects that are changing lives across Glasgow using the power of football!

Whether this be helping the homeless, the disadvantaged or those needing physical or mental health support, we are making football accessible to those of all ages and abilities. HOWEVER, to keep doing the amazing work that we do, we sometimes need a little help…

Which is exactly why we rely on people who love our club to CHALLENGE THEMSELVES in order to support our great causes!

Whether you plan to run a marathon, make a Tough Mudder Team or climb the highest (or wee-est) mountain – we want to be a part of it. We’re here to help you raise money for our projects and to ensure that every Partick Thistle Charitable Trust Fan is there to support you on your journey!

So what are you waiting for?  Push yourself, change lives and become a Challenge Yourself Champion!

How do I get started?

It’s very simple! So simple in fact that we’ve whittled it down to 3 easy steps:

  1. Register a Fundraiser Page via this link and fill in the information. This can be shared online!
  2. We’ll send you out a fundraiser pack complete with PTCT t-shirt to wear during your event, a signed thank you letter from the PTCT Chairman and The Chief Executive and a sponsorship print to hang proudly in your home or office to get those extra sponsors!
  3. Get in touch with us by emailing rebecca.richardson@ptct.org.uk and send us your pics, videos, everything! So that we can share your Challenge Yourself story with our amazing fans.
