Cross something off your bucket list this year with a sporting event or challenge!

Sporting events are fantastic opportunities to fundraise for our charity. By taking part, you can help to raise awareness about our work and make a huge impact on the lives of young people in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Many events are FREE to register and you’ll receive plenty of support and resources from us to help you reach your fundraising goal! In 2022, one of our supporters completed the amazing feat of the Three Peaks Challenge, trekking all the highest peaks of the UK back-to-back. For them, the “sense of achievement was great” as they raised an amazing £1,000 for our charity.

There are many challenges available for you to get involved in.

Whether you want to run, cycle, walk, swim, climb, or even fall (skydive!), we’ve got plenty of opportunities to tell you about, including:

  • Running: Norwich 10K, Aylsham 5k, Ipswich Half-Marathon, Blickling Half-Marathon.
