A-Z of Fundraising Ideas

Here's a great list of amazing ways to fund raise for StrongMen!

Sick of bad hair days? Go bald for StrongMen. Be like Dan.

I – Irish night
It doesn’t have to be St Patrick’s Day to celebrate the Irish culture. Throw a party, and if you have the skills charge a fee for Irish dance lessons.
