Raise Funds for BTRC By Joining the Virtual Balloon Race

🎈Tickets available now for our Virtual Balloon Race🎈 A fun, interactive way of helping BTRC raise funds…
To support us, you can take part in the Halloween Race. Buy a virtual balloon for just £3, between now and the start date, using the blue tab at the bottom of this page. You can even gift balloons to your friends and family! The race starts 31st October 2023 at 12pm. The race will be 7 days long and the winning balloon is the one that has flown the furthest, as measured in a straight line from the launch location.

You will be able to name, decorate and alter the parameters of your balloon which will effect how it flies. The race uses real weather conditions including wind speed and current temperature.

This is a national race, and there are other charities and organisations taking part. This means that your balloon is competing individually. The national race are offering 2 prizes:

1.£100 cash
2. Amazon Alexa / Echo Dot 4th Generation!

We will also be offering prizes for the 1st to 3rd place and the best decorated balloon will win a mystery prize – so it’s all to play for! If we sell more than 1000 balloons, we will receive a further donation of £100.

You will need to create an account when buying a balloon, as this allows you to track it’s progress all week via the dashboard. It also ensures eco racing can contact you if your balloon wins the national race. You can buy as many balloons as you would like (£3 per balloon) which increases your chance of winning. Once the race has started you will be unable to buy more balloons or make any changes to it. Every balloon bought will help towards our goal.

Please share to all your friends, family, colleagues and anyone you know! Thank you for your support, and good luck!
