Virtual events


Coronavirus (Covid-19) update – we ask that you carefully consider the Government’s official advice when choosing your fundraising challenge. 

Virtual events happen online, rather than in the real world, and can take the place of many mass participation events that you may have been planning. It means you can take part no matter where you are based.

The Running Tracks challenge

This May, take to the streets to your choice of beats. Run, walk, cycle or exercise for the time it takes for you to listen to a favourite album each day and raise funds to support vulnerable children across the UK. Find out more and sign up!

Challenge 1739

This October, why not take on Challenge 1739, the fundraising event that you can really make your own. As the UK's oldest children's charity founded in 1739, we're asking you to take inspiration from this special date and take on our challenge! Find out more here!

In partnership with Run for Charity, we've got lots of virtual events you can sign up to right now! 

Virtual Easter Run- This is a 5K Virtual run which can be done on or before Easter. The Virtual Easter Run also has a special challenge attached and asks that you run 5K on Easter day with a fetching pair of bunny ears. Quite simply to earn the special challenge virtual medal you will need to upload a picture of you at the end of your run in Easter fancy dress. 

Virtual Charity Challenge - The idea is for you to come up with your own virtual charity challenge and then complete it. By doing so we will send you one of our special Virtual Charity Challenge medals. Please contact us for inspiration if you need it, we will be in touch to discuss your challenge and get you going. Your challenge could be done alone, as a pair or in a large team. Examples of previous challenges have been climbing the height of Everest at home, the press-up challenge, (100 press ups a day for a month) going sober for a month, running a 5k backwards, the crazier the better!!

To sign up and get involved with any of these events head over to our virtual events registration page.
