Each day, an average of 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. With your support, we are able to fund life-saving research projects across the UK into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer.
But we still have a long way to go… Take on the Mini Superhero Challenge with your school or group to raise funds and help save young lives!
We’re asking you to channel your inner superhero and set yourselves a challenge based on the number 12 representing the number of children, on average, that are diagnosed with childhood cancer in the UK every day.
The challenge is completely flexible but we’ve added a few Mini Superhero Challenge ideas and top tips to ensure your fundraising is as successful as possible; you can check them by scrolling down!
To maximise your fundraising, be sure to create an online fundraising page for your school or group which you can share to help spread the word.
You will be able to do this here next week.
Not only will you be helping us to continue to improve the treatment of children with cancer and keep their families together, your school or organisation can choose to keep up to 20% of the total raised*.
Additionally, for every child raising over £10 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 £10 per badge requested. Your school or organisation may choose to keep up to 20% of your total funds raised; however, this amount must be taken from any offline donations as 100% of funds raised online via Everydayhero or other online fundraising platforms will be donated directly to Children with Cancer UK.
When you sign up to the Mini Superhero Challenge, we’ll send you a free fundraising pack which will have all you need inside 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!
Whether you walk, jog or run it – challenge yourselves to take on a mile a day for 12 days, or maybe even 12 miles in a single day. Share the distance between the whole group or class and march your way into the Superhero Wall of Fame.
Choose 12 chores to help around the house, at school or in your club. Commit to doing these for 12 days in a row and get sponsored to do it… Too easy? Why not make it 12 weeks!
12 laps of the park or playground, cycling your way to superhero stardom!
With such a variety of consoles to choose from, why not give up all your favourite gaming tech for 12 days… Why not combine it with ‘Chores for Change’ for extra brownie points and boost your fundraising!
These are just a few of our suggestions – the challenge is completely flexible, so get your creative juices flowing and devise a challenge to suit your school or group.
Remember that any activities you organise should be age-appropriate and properly risk-assessed.
