Run, hop, skip, jump or swim 5k to raise funds for Child Bereavement UK this May

Run for Heroes, the creators of this fun virtual challenge event are asking YOU to take part and help raise money for charities across the UK. We’d LOVE you to take up the challenge to raise funds for Child Bereavement UK.

Last year we provided support to over 2,000 bereaved families and children and answered more than 7,000 enquiries to our Helpline and Live Chat from families and professionals. We anticipate the need will be significant as families cope with the impact of the pandemic. With your help we can ensure we’re here for them.

Complete 5k any way you like throughout the month of May: run it, walk it, swim, jump, or hop it; do a bit each day or all in one go; do it alone or with family or friends* - the choice is yours! Join the #5kMay online community to share your activities and keep your motivation levels high.
