Join our team of #HolidayHeroes – walking, running, jumping, skydiving – to give families the gift of time away together.

In 2023 we have places available in the London Marathon, Great North Run, Royal Parks Half Marathon, Hackney Half Marathon, London 10K, Kilt Walk, Edinburgh Marathon Festival, the Thames Path Ultra Challenge, and much much more!

#HolidayHeroes are a community of people who raise money to give families living with day-to-day struggles, facing illness, isolation, and bereavement, a short UK holiday. Your energy, commitment, and passion mean that families can spend time together and make lasting memories. 

If you would like to organise your own event or have a place in another event either on your own or as a team, then please get in touch with us today so that we can support you.
