Personal Challenges

One of the most exciting ways to raise money for NICE is to take on a sponsored personal challenge. We have a range for you to take part in which are detailed on our event list.

You also have the option to organise your own challenge if you’d prefer. We’d love to hear about your fundraising idea so please register your interest with us by emailing and we’ll be in touch to discuss. You will receive dedicated support from the NICE Fundraising Team and we can of course advise on insurance and legalities as well as any marketing materials you might need.

Please also see below for a guide on how to set up your own fundraising page online:

Whatever personal challenge to decide to take on to raise money for NICE we thought we’d leave you with the lovely thought that you will be giving over 400 families and children a place to turn to when life has taken a turn for the worse and providing them with real hope for their future.

No Bridge Too Far

Anthony Coombs and his fantastic team of fundraising cyclists undertook an epic challenge and over the course of six days they cycled 300km across France, from the town of Millau to the Mediterranean Coast, including Mount Ventoux, which is often climbed in the Tour de France and reaches the height of 15,000 feet. The challenge was a truly incredible display of dedication from all the cyclists.

“An exhausting but memorable and enjoyable four days of cycling in magnificent “France profonde”. One day saw us in the saddle for 11 hours so it probably wasn’t a surprise that I lost half a stone in the week! The thought of the children we were helping at NICE gave strength to tired legs”

Anthony Coombs, NICE Trustee

Thames Path Walk

Emma Cooper decided to take on a 100k walk with her sister in September to give something back to NICE, who helps her daughter Eva.

Eva has mild hypotonia and her development has been delayed due to a Chromosome Disorder. For the past 12 months, Eva & I have been attending NICE’s ‘Milestone Club’ which is a free weekly group for children aged 0-3 who are delayed in reaching their developmental milestones. It is run by highly trained ‘Conductors’ and we feel very privileged that Eva is able to benefit from such a wonderful service. We have met some very inspiring children and their families through this group, and it has been wonderful to see them progress and work towards their goals.

The walk took place over three days, starting at Putney Bridge and finishing at Henley on Thames and the distance covered was approximately two and a half marathons!

In total Emma and her sister have raised a fantastic £1,016 – congratulations and thank you so much!
