Challenge Events

Transform young lives by taking part in one of our exciting challenge events.

  • We provide specialist care, education and treatment for children aged 5-18 who have experienced severe emotional and behavioural disturbance as a result of early life trauma.
  • Push past your limits and realise your goals! Walk, run, cycle, swim or even take to the skies – the options are endless and your efforts will make a real difference to the lives of the children we care for.
  • We work with a number of different providers and have charity places in challenge events both in the UK and internationally. Get in touch for places in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon, due to take place on 4th October 2021!
  • By committing to secure sponsorship for your endeavours you will help us to transform the life chances of these children by contributing towards the cost of providing them with a rehabilitative and nurturing environment where they can heal, fulfil their potential and lead happy, independent and successful lives.

For tips and advice finding the right event for you, or if you have already secured a place, please get in touch with our Challenge Events team.

Childhood First has places in both the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon, due to take place on Sunday 3rd October, and the 2022 race which will take place on 24th April. Download an application form below:
