Challenge Events

Do you fancy doing something a bit different? Challenge events can be one of the most exciting ways to fundraise, whilst also having fun and getting out of your comfort zone. We have places in a wide range of events up and down the country (and beyond!), from Dog Jogs, Zombie Evacuations and muddy obstacle races to 10K runs, half and full marathons - we can help find the perfect event for you.

So whether you want to push your fitness to the limit, or just take part in something silly – we would love to have you on board. Our Challenge Events Pack (download for free by clicking the link below) is full of ideas to help you decide the sort of challenge you could do, and explains just how much of a difference the money you raise can make for people living with cancer.

Upcoming Event: Get Festive with Santa in the City 2017!

Join us at our biggest fundraiser of the year and help us raise money to support people with cancer up and down the UK. This December, we’re coming together to don silly Santa costumes to take part in Santa in the City – a sponsored 5k run (or jog or walk if you’ve had a few too many mince pies!) suitable for all abilities.

This fun run is a chance to have a laugh and get in the festive mood with friends, family and colleagues, whilst raising money for a good cause.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today by filling the registration form (below) and emailing it to our Fundraising Officer, Lily (, or give us a call on 0207 470 8755

Book your Skydive Today!

We're also really excited to introduce our new skydiving programme. You can jump from at least 10,000 feet - falling through the air at 120 mph - ticking parachuting off your bucket list, whilst doing something great for charity. Your jump and training will be all completed in one day, and you'll be harnessed to an experienced instructor at all times. If you reach your fundraising target of £395, you skydive for free!

Choose from a variety of airfields all across the UK, on a date of your choice. So, what are you waiting for? You can book online here.
