This was the first fundraising pack that I have ever received that looked like it had been created with the real workings of schools in mind. The way it was written, the fact that it was so accessible and adaptable plus the excellent feedback after the event from parents, staff and children, it make me want to make it an annual event.

AllStar Games is a brand new, high-energy fundraising event for schools and communities. Sign up now and receive fundraising ideas, start and finish lines, wristbands, certificates and everything else you'll need to put on a fun children's sporting event that raises money for life saving research.
AllStar Games works any time of year, indoors or outside.

Win a researcher
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is offering schools across the UK the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime workshop with a BHF-funded researcher to inspire pupils to learn about how their hearts work. To be in with a chance to win all you have to do is sign up to one of our schools events before Wednesday 28th February 2018. Find out more about the win a researcher prize draw here.
Free resources for your school or group
We give you all the resources you need to run the day as well as access to our online hub. You can go as big as you want to, inviting parents or keeping it within your regular timetable.
Keep up to 20% of your fundraising
Not only do you receive all the support and resources you need to run your AllStars event, your school or youth group also gets to keep up to 20% of the total offline fundraising, to use towards new resources and materials.
The total sponsorship money raised is split between the group and the British Heart Foundation. You will retain up to 20% to support your activities and 80% is sent to us to help fund essential research into the causes and treatment of heart disease, patient care and support.
How your fundraising helps
Before the British Heart Foundation, only one in five babies with heart problems survived more than a year - but our life saving heart research has changed this.
Now, four in five babies born with heart problems get the chance to go to school.
We couldn't do this without support from schools like yours, but we still need your help, so why not get your school to fundraise for the BHF this year?

Previous AllStar Games participants share their experiences of hosting the event.
Vicki Morris, PE Coordinator
"The pack was really useful. I think the activity cards and ideas for races were great; they match the current huge government push for children to compete and get active whilst giving us the option for more fun events.
"This was the first fundraising pack that I have ever received that looked like it had been created with the real workings of schools in mind. The way it was written, the fact that it was so accessible and adaptable plus the excellent feedback after the event from parents, staff and children, it make me want to make it an annual event.
"I have been really impressed by the amount of resources in the online portal, they've given me some great ideas.
"It was really easy to organise; if I had been less experienced and had not organised events like this before I would have really valued the AllStars Games suggested schedule, but actually it just tied in with how I would usually run my other annual events."
Jennifer Daley, School Council Coordinator
"It was great to have lots of promotional resources and support from AllStar Games; it felt like we were working as a team with BHF to help the kids understand why we were raising money for life saving heart research.
"Your template letters were fantastic and made my life a lot easier, I also used the online videos and information to educate my school council team and then they went and visited all the classes in years 3 to 6 to tell them all about the BHF.
We used your brilliant cards as inspiration and really went for it, we ran three family races including a toddler race, it was such a laugh."
Lynne Cruickshank, PE Coordinator
""I adapted what I usually do on sports day and used the AllStar Games kit to make the event more inclusive of families. We got parents involved in the parent/pupil races and invited everyone to bring picnics. Everybody loved it.
"The parents and teachers were really receptive, the kids had a whale of a time and it went really well.
"The Quick Guide certainly made it easy to plan the event and gave workable timescales. Even the most junior of staff could handle that.
"I downloaded the letters to parents and they went home with the sponsorship forms. We also sent out a reminder letter, all paper because sometimes they don't open emails. It was all very easy, no extra work at all."
