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.

You can find tips, materials, and practical advice for your fundraising challenge in our Fundraising Pack. Please feel free to contact us through the Fundraising Support page with any questions, we would be very happy to hear from you.
