About Shine Virtual Balloon Races

Shine’s virtual balloon races are simple and fun, and as the races are online they are environmentally friendly too! 

You can... 

·         Personalise your balloon by choosing from a range of shapes, colours, and patterns, and even add a photo and message 

·         Track balloons via the online race page 

·         Get race updates via Twitter 

All this AND you’ll be supporting a great cause, helping thousands of individuals affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus, and their families, in local communities across the country. 

Many of Shine's services are funded by the generosity of fundraisers and supporters.  Our specialist support service is available to families pre-birth, at the point of diagnosis, and to children, young people and adults affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

An integral part of Shine’s fundraising initiatives since the early 90s has been sponsored balloon races. Each year 1000s of companies pledge their support by taking part in our virtual balloon races that could ultimately win them a choice of prizes!
