In light of our new and changing daily life, our Mini Superhero Challenge is adapting…

However, one thing that will remain, is our priority of giving hope to children and their families facing cancer through life-saving research, support initiatives and raising awareness. Tragically, in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, 12 children and young people will continue to be diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.

We know that the next few weeks might be a little strange and more difficult than we’re used to, but you can still help us fight the injustice of childhood cancer and keep your children active and busy by joining our Mini Superhero Challenge!


We are calling all your little heroes to get involved from the comfort of your own homes, to help save young lives!

Whether you take on our Mini Superhero Chores for Change Challenge or the Mini Superhero Mile a Day March, there is something for everyone to get involved in. What’s more, we’ve got some fab printable materials to help your little ones personalise their challenge!

You’ll receive all you need to get started via email when you sign-up today through filling in the form below. Don’t forget to create an online fundraising page for your little one. Click here.

Don’t forget, for every child raising over £12 they’ll receive an extra special Children with Cancer UK Mini Superhero fabric badge as a thank you for their amazing efforts! *

*Please note, Children with Cancer UK must be in receipt of at last £12 per badge requested. We will aim to dispatch your reward badge as quickly as possible but there may be a slight delay due to current trading and movement restrictions.

Now, more than ever before, we need your help. In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, families of children and young people with cancer, are facing an immense added pressure. Their child is not only facing cancer, but may also be facing a higher risk of infection. Some types of cancer and treatments can lead to a weakened immune system which makes it harder for those affected to fight off infections like COVID-19.

We want to ensure that during the worrying months that lie ahead, we can continue to do everything we can to give hope to young cancer patients and their families.  Additionally, for every child raising over £12 you’ll receive an extra special Children with Cancer UK Mini Superhero fabric badge as a thank you for their amazing efforts!

*Please note, Children with Cancer UK must be in receipt of at least £12 per badge requested.  We will aim to dispatch your reward badge as quickly as possible but there may be a slight delay due to current trading and movement restrictions.  What resources do I need?

When you sign up to the Mini Superhero Challenge, we’ll send you a free fundraising pack by email which will have all you need to get you started. In addition to what is included in your fundraising pack, we also have a variety of fun downloadable extras to help make your challenge extra special. Check them all in our resources section below!  Don’t forget to set-up your online fundraising page at superhero.childrenwithcancer.org.uk
