Runs and challenge events

two people runningThere are so many events and activities you can take part in, from something as simple as light-hearted as one of our family events to one of our extreme challenges

You can fundraise for The Children's Society in the iconic Virgin London Marathon or take part in a family friendly fun run

We have guaranteed places in the Bupa Great North Run and the Bupa London 10k, so if you're weren't able to get a place in the ballot, get in touch.

We now have limited places in the sold out RideLondon-Surrey 100.

Regardless of the event you choose, we'll be here to support you in any way we can and provide free fundraising materials.

Sporting challenges

Set yourself a personal challenge this year and take part in one of the many sporting events on offer.

This could mean rounding up your family to take part in a ‘scootathlon’ or perhaps signing up to a 10k run to get fit. By joining our team, the money you raise will be helping us reach out to more children who face difficult childhoods.
