About the Challenge

This March supporters can choose a fundraising challenge based around the number 7 to raise much needed funds for the charity.

Chailey Heritage Foundation has helped young people to overcome their challenges and reach their potential for 120 years, when the charity began by supporting 7 young boys with disabilities.

Your Amazing Chailey Challenge could be:

  • physical (run or walk 7 miles, cycle 70 miles, swim 70 lengths)
  • mental (read 7 books, memorise 7 poems, finish 7 puzzles)
  • skill based (bake 7 cakes, sew 7 garments, knit 7 hats)
  • giving up one of your favourite things (7 hour silence, give up coffees or chocolate for 7 days)

The challenge undertaken by you or your team can be almost anything that will inspire your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you.
