What's a virtual balloon race?
Concerned with the environmental impact of real balloon launches, our races are virtual, online and interactive while still promoting our cause and raising money for Shine.
How does it help our charity?
Funds raised from our virtual balloon races help and support people affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus via our charity Shine.
How can you get involved?
For a small cost, you can design and sponsor a balloon to travel the furthest in one or more of our races - and be in with a chance of winning a choice of prizes!
