Challenge Events

Why not take on an inspirational challenge and help raise money for Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families?

Jack spent five days raising an amazing £16,000 in sponsorship for Centre, cycling from Land’s End to London! He said “It was a tough challenge but so rewarding. I was really motivated to keep pushing, knowing that I was raising money for the Centre. I just wanted to do something to make a real difference. I really believe that their work is changing lives for the better.”

There are hundreds of different options, from marathons, treks, triathlons to skydiving, assault courses and cycle rides.
