Our 2020 pledge


The final weeks of 2019 are a time for reflections and resolutions.

Earlier this year Missive’s co-founder, Emma Ross, was diagnosed with parosteal osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. For a company as close as Missive, this was very difficult news.

What unifies our team, however, is our determination to turn setbacks into successes. As Emma fights her personal battle, the rest of the Missive team stands behind her. That is why we are pledging to spend 2020 raising £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.  

Emma’s treatment may only just be underway, but she’s already seen the life-changing emotional and physical support offered by charities like Macmillan. Now, it’s our time to give back. 

Over the next year, we pledge to do the following in order to raise money for Macmillan:

  • Testing our endurance

Collectively, we will run, walk, climb, swim and trudge over 500 miles. To hit this goal we’ll be running a selection of half marathons, completing a team Tough Mudder, climbing the country’s highest peaks and tackling long distance footpaths. 

  • Hosting exciting events

Throughout 2020 we’ll be inviting our network to many events to help raise funds. Keep your eyes peeled for quiz nights, auctions, wine-tastings and coffee mornings. 

  • Taking on your challenges

Lastly, and perhaps most dauntingly, we’re opening our pledge to the floor. You can send the Missive team up Snowdon, consign us to a 24 hour spinning challenge or even commission bake sales in your headquarters. The sky’s the limit! Email [email protected] with your requests and we will respond to every single one.

Please join us in the fight and show your support. If you’d like to join any of our challenges please contact the Missive team for details. Alternatively, you can donate to Missive’s JustGiving page here.
