Funding vital research

We’re on a mission to save and change children’s lives through medical research, developing treatments, vaccinations and cures.

Elijah's Star

Sponsor team Elijah’s Star who are rowing the Atlantic to shine a spotlight on the impact premature birth has on babies and their families and to help fund life-saving research.

Childhood cancers

In the UK almost 4,000 children and young people under 25 are diagnosed with cancer every year. We are funding research to try and improve the chances and treatment for children with brain tumours and cancer.

London to Paris

20 - 24 July 2022

Join the peloton to Paris on one of Europe's greatest cycling adventures!

Passing through picturesque Surrey and Sussex countryside, we cross the Channel and continue through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France. With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs, the sight of the Eiffel Tower will evoke a real sense of achievement.

Cycling Events

With cycling challenges both in the UK and abroad, there's definitely a challenge waiting for you. From beginners to the very experienced and with routes ranging 20 miles to hundreds of miles, come and join us in the fight for little lives.


Whether you’re looking for your first challenge or you’re a seasoned runner we’ve got an event for you. We have places in the world’s greatest and best-known events and races.
