The purpose of The Children's Challenge™ is to raise money for charity. As such, individuals must raise a minimum of £25 for a charity of their choice. 

In order to keep track of the total raised, teams or individuals should create their own fundraising page on the "Just Giving" website. In following the link below, your fundraising page will be automatically linked to the 2019 Cross-Country Relay.

Create a Fundraising Page

Once you have set up your fundraising page and selected a charity of your choice you will need to link it to the team "Just Giving" page. Simply go to the team page link below and click 'Join the team' next to "Team members".

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 those participants struggling to decide upon a charity, the following charities are very worthy causes:

St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation where the main focus is on children and young people who have special needs through illness, disability or mental health problems.

Youth Adventure Trust helping vulnerable young people to fulfil their potential and to lead positive lives in the future. 

This is a unique event and a proper challenge. The team work starts here!
