The purpose of The Children's Challenge™ is to raise money for charity. As such, the Cross-Country is free for all participants and spectators. Individuals must raise a minimum of £25 for charity however. The aspiration for this event is to raise sponsorship of at least £10,000.

In order to keep track of the total raised, Teams should create their own fundraising page on the "Just Giving" website.

To set up your fundraising page and automatically link it to the Cross-Country Relay Event and the Team Page please follow this guide and click on the links contained within it:

Please note, without wishing to be overly prescriptive, raising money for standard primary and secondary schools, although a good cause, is not the motivation of this organisation. Helping disadvantaged individuals is.

For the 2018 Cross-Country Relay, The Children's Challenge is being supported by the following charities:

The Chiltern Centre that offers respite care in Oxfordshire to disabled children aged 6 to 25 years. 

Camp Mohawk a multi-functional day centre for children with special needs and their families.

Pursuing Independent Paths (PIP) - extends independence and choice to people with learning disabilities.

For those participants struggling to decide upon a charity, the above charities are very worthy causes.  

The team work starts here.
