This summer, join our summer sportathon and help support child victims of trafficking!

With events like the marathon cancelled due to the pandemic, charities like ours are losing essential funding. 

You can help! Simply dust off your trainers, grab your swimming costume or don your walking sandals and get active to support trafficked children.

You don’t need to be a marathon runner to take part – this is a challenge for all ages and abilities! While we're all continuing to look out for one another by socially distancing, our summer challenges can be carried out alone, in your home, garden or park - whatever is safe and easy for you.

Here's how it works:

  1. Pick a summer challenge from our list below or make up your own!
  2. Click on this link to set up your fundraising page. Share it with your family, friends and community and encourage them to support your feat in aid of our work
  3. Begin your challenge and enjoy getting active for a good cause! 

You can help inspire others by sharing photos or videos of your challenge on social media. We’d love to see what you’re doing and give you a shoutout, so remember to tag ECPAT UK! Our official social media accounts are linked in the top right corner of this page.

We’re all in this together

If you don’t want to commit to a challenge, you can get involved by making a donation of £26 or whatever you can afford. Every single donation makes a big difference to a small charity like ECPAT UK.
