Challenge Events

Whether you want to run a few miles or trek across a dessert, there’s a challenge event for you.

We’ll cheer you on all the way as you challenge yourself and raise much-needed funds to make a carer’s life easier. You can choose a challenge from the list below or sign up to another event. Once you’ve chosen your challenge, set up a JustGiving fundraising page and ask your friends and family to sponsor you.
