How your money helps

All proceeds raised from each of these challenge events will go to the Northern Ireland Appeal.

On average, a family will travel 500 miles a week to access the cancer treatment their child needs. This is a huge emotional and financial strain on a family at an already stressful time.

The Northern Ireland Appeal aims to raise £3.7 million to fund two Homes from Home at locations within walking distance of hospitals where young people with cancer are treated.
