Get fit, have fun, make friends and raise funds with a YMCA Challenge event!

Sponsorship from events helps to keep our charitable services running, including youth work, counselling, housing, disability playschemes, sport and physical activity. We aim to help people to believe in themselves and achieve their goals by providing services that focus on those who are vulnerable, have a disability or face disadvantage.

Our event leaders will help you with your fitness and our team of fundraisers will assist you every step of the way. All you need to do is choose your event and leave the rest to us!

Everyone was so supportive and encouraging. The team spirit and organisation was amazing and we had so much fun. When we finally reached Bruges, the sense of achievement was incredible. If I’d had the chance, I would have happily turned my bicycle around, given the Eurostar a miss and cycled all the way home too!
