Help us to take on the challenge of beating children's cancer by taking on a challenge of your own. By getting your friends and family to sponsor you, you can raise the vital funds needed to find new treatments. You could also join a fundraisers or a supporter event.

Fundraising can be easier than you think! You can set up an online donation page or use one of our paper sponsor forms to get your fundraising off to a great start.
If you want to boost your fundraising you could run a sweepstake, asking people to make a donation in order to guess how long your run will take you. You can also run your own ‘mini fundraisers’ to raise extra money. These are usually small events like bake sales that are easy to organise and plan.
