Pound the streets to raise pounds


Whether you’re as fit as a fiddle or a road race rookie, this fun 10K run (just over 6 miles) is accessible to everyone.


All proceeds go to our Forgotten Children appeal, which helps vulnerable children on the streets of Pakistan, Lebanon and Bangladesh. Your support will help fund Rescue Centres and Outreach Workers on the front line of child poverty.


It only takes £14 to rescue a child from a life on the streets. We’re asking all of our runners to raise a minimum of £70 to save 5 children, but we’re hoping you will do even more. Raise £140 and you’ll save 10 children, one for every kilometre you run! How many children will you save?


Whether online or offline, get your fundraising off to a flying start. If you're setting up a JustGiving page, be sure to join our team to keep track of #TeamOrange's progress, or download a sponsorship form to get pledges in person.
