Sponsored events

This year you can #SupportSOS in a number of guaranteed places in national events - from marathons and to cycle rides - around the country. Why not join us? As part of the team you will be taking on a new and exciting challenge, meeting new people, and raising money for a great cause.
If you would prefer to take part in an event that is not on our list, that’s fine too. You could skydive, abseil, run, cycle, swim, or walk in an event near you. You could even join a Tough Mudder event or trek the Andes. Just give us a call and we'll support you any way we can.

Grab your place now.

This year we have places in fundraising events all across the country. You can join our team for an invigorating hundred-mile race for RideLondon, or enjoy a 5K run in 20 different locations for the Big Fun Run. #SupportSOS and help us protect unsupported children worldwide.
