If you’re feeling more creative and want to organise your own challenge, then you don’t have to DO IT all YOURSELF.

Whether you are shaving off your hair, bathing in beans or organising a dance off, whether it’s for fitness, for fun, or for facing your fears, if we haven’t got the challenge for you, then a Norwood DIY challenge allows you to take on anything you wish, anywhere in the world, on any scale – while raising vital funds for Norwood. No challenge is too big or too small.

Once you’ve registered your event with us, we’ll send you a fundraising pack, help you with useful hints and tips and guide you every step of the way to reaching your fundraising target – safe in the knowledge you’ve done your bit to helping all of the people that Norwood supports.

Choose Your Own Challenge

There’s a huge variety of challenges out there, so if we haven’t got an event listed on our website that appeals, you can still take part and raise money for Norwood. Sign up for the challenge of your choice and buy your own place through the event organiser – but then fundraise for Norwood.

As you would have secured your own place, there will be no set fundraising target, however if you do hit our suggested minimum, we will refund you your whole registration fee!

Even better, all the money you raise goes directly towards helping the inspirational children and families we support.

Why challenge for Norwood?

In addition to the satisfaction of raising funds for some of the most vulnerable people in the community, we’ll support you every step of the way with:

  • A personalised Norwood running vest.
  • Tailored training guides.
  • On-hand support from our dedicated fundraising team.
  • Fundraising materials to help you exceed your target.
  • An online fundraising pack to help you smash those targets.

Just some of our ideas…

Choose your challenge and let us know what you’re up to.
