Funding vital research
We’re on a mission to save and change children’s lives through medical research, developing treatments, vaccinations and cures.
30% of children with a rare disease will lose their lives before their fifth birthday. With your help we can develop treatments and cures to tackle rare diseases that devastate children’s lives. Help fund vital research.
Some women experience complications during pregnancy which can involve the mother’s health, the baby’s health or both.
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.
With the help of all our supporters we have played a significant role in many medical breakthroughs for 70 years, starting with the development of the first UK polio vaccines.
Race the Sun
Six events throughout 2024
Our sell-out triathlon-style team challenge series returns bigger and better with events in Wales, the Lakes, and Dorset’s Jurassic Coast to choose from. In teams of two or four, race the setting sun to bike, hike and paddle your way to victory in an exhilarating day whilst also raising money to help sick and vulnerable babies and children.
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.
Our triathlon-style Race the Sun series pits teams against each other in a race against the setting sun, competing to bike, hike and paddle around some of the UK's most beautiful locations.
The volunteer committee is proud to announce a significant milestone in their fundraising to help sick and disabled babies, children and young people.
