Events

Now, more than ever, we need you to fundraise for us. Major events have been cancelled and social distancing may be affecting how we fundraise, but there are still lots of opportunities for you to get involved and help support critically ill children.

Whilst outdoor events are hold, there are many fantastic - and fun - ways to fundraise in lockdown. We've made it even easier with our home fundraising ideas pack.

Or scroll down to sign up to a challenge event or a special event and help raise vital funds to find new treatments and cures for critically ill children.
