Home to Home Challenge

Home to Home Challenge

1-30 June 2024 - Run, Walk, Cycle or Swim. Your choice, your challenge.

Imagine, if we didn’t exist, many of the families staying in one of our ‘Homes from Home’ would have to travel hundreds of miles to be close to their seriously sick child in hospitals across the country.

It costs The Sick Children’s Trust £40 to support one family for one night in one of our ten ‘Homes from Home’.

By taking part in the Home to Home Challenge you are helping us keep families together, when it matters the most.
