CHICKS challenge event application

We will then be asking you to pledge to raise a minimum of £500 for CHICKS. You will also receive a CHICKS running shirt and the complete support of our Events team, plus a fundraising pack with everything you’ll need to raise money.

Previous runners have raised £1000s for children across the UK.

 Josie attended a CHICKS respite break as a child and has reflected on the impact this has made on her life:

"The impact that CHICKS has had on me as an adult is invaluable. CHICKS gave me so much confidence within my career choice and socially. I have done many amazing things thanks to the confidence and self-belief that CHICKS gave me; I jumped out of a plane for charity; I’ve been a youth worker working with teenagers and at present I work at Ty Hafan, Children’s Hospice for Wales, which is so rewarding."

The stunning Royal Parks Half Marathon takes in some of the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, as well as four of London's eight Royal Parks: Hyde Park, the Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens. For more information, please follow the link below.
