How to get involved

Thanks for visiting the Shine Balloon Race website.

This is your chance to make a difference to the lives of 12,000 babies, children and families in the UK affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

Shine (formerly ASBAH) was formed in 1966 to support those living with these conditions. We rely heavily on the generous support of individuals and businesses in order to achieve our goals on a daily basis.

One of Shine’s mainstays of fundraising over a number of years has been the ability to give EVERYONE the opportunity to win a choice of prizes in our online virtual balloon races, the concept of which has been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century!! You can track your balloon’s journey online and boost its chances of winning along the way and much, much more!
