The Great British Children’s Challenge
Welcome to The Great British children’s Challenge. If you’ve found our website then you are one step closer to helping your child become the best version of themselves. We will inspire them, encourage them and set them fun challenges based on core values. We’re making learning fun, your child will track their progress throughout the course of the month and will always receive a shiny, themed medal. They can collect them, take them into school to show their teachers and inspire their friends.
Not only will you be helping your child, you’ll be helping us raise 1 million pounds for local and national charities. £1 of the £6 medal cost will always be donated to our charity of the month.
Raise funds – get fit – collect medals – have fun
To encourage children to be active in and out of school hours and
therefore encourage habits that battle childhood obesity
To educate children on charitable giving and good causes
To reward children with collectible achievement medals
To enable children that may be underachievers at school to gain
confidence through sport
To educate parents and provide them with a challenge they can do in
their own time with their children
Helping children discover core values
Venetia Sanders – Founder
We aim to sweep the UK spreading kindness and educating as well as influencing children to make smart choices regarding their health and well being. I was overweight as a child which was my motivation for this project along with learning that only 1 in 5 children aged 5-10 were getting 60 minutes of daily activity . The mind is a sponge during the primary school years and if learning life long habits can become fun and rewarding then we must be on to a winner
James Hickman – Olympic Swimmer
Getting children active as a habit is so important not just for physical health but also for mental wellbeing. I love how the Great British Children’s Challenge has something that any and every child can have a go at. Let’s get kids out there having fun.
