What is Ultimate Dodgeball?
Dodgeball is a universally appealing sport that everyone can play. If you can catch, throw or dodge then you can play dodgeball. It’s a fantastic way to get children active and is also great for developing team-building skills and strategic thinking. With dodgeball everyone is important in creating a successful team.
Your free fundraising pack is full of exciting resources to help you plan your event. We provide you with all the lesson plans and teaching resources you'll need to prepare for the event, including dodgeballs, fundraising ideas and access to our online hub.
Keep up to 20% of your fundraising
When you run your dodgeball event, your school or youth group 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 pioneering research.
How your fundraising helps
Our work has transformed heart attack care, progressed genetic testing for inherited heart conditions and developed new treatments for babies born with heart defects.
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 your support, but we still need your help. Surgery techniques can still be improved. Many babies still struggle with a congenital heart defect. And there are exciting developments in genetics and stem cell technology yet to be found, which could revolutionise the treatment of many heart conditions.
So why not get your school or group signed up to Ultimate Dodgeball and help fundraise for life saving research?
We rely entirely on our supporters to fund our research. Only with you by our side can we keep fighting. With your support we’ll continue to develop new treatments, transform care and ultimately find a way to beat heart disease for good. Thank you.
