Sign up to our Make Every Mile Count virtual challenge to ensure we can continue to make every moment count for the families we support in 2020. 

2020 is a leap year meaning we need to fund an additional 24 hours of vital care this year. It costs us £27,000 a day to maintain our current level of care so your support really does make a huge difference.

This is your opportunity to design your own challenge. You choose what you do, when you do it, where you do it and how much you raise. We will be on hand every step of the way with any support that you may need to reach your goal in 2020.

Step 1:

Decide on a challenge to undertake. Look on the options below and then let us know by filling out this form.


Commit to a daily step total or specific distance.


Set yourself a distance to run.


Get on your bike (real or exercise) and ride.


Make a splash in your local pool.


Make a mountain out of a staircase.


Make the challenge more fun by taking part as a team.
