Run, walk or cycle 2,700 miles with your team from the UK to the North Pole to help keep families together this Christmas and support Young Lives vs Cancer.

Our 11 Homes from Home are more than just a place to stay. They provide a safe, comfortable environment for families to have a break from hospitals, stay together with other siblings, cook home made meals and be close to principal treatment centres.

The homes are free for families to stay in and mean in the toughest times, families can focus on their child and avoid the extra time spent travelling and financial pressure of petrol, accommodation and hospital food.

Get involved in Race to the North Pole with your team and pledge to raise £2,700, so together we can fund 70 families to stay in the Homes this Christmas 🎄

Getting involved is easy:

  1. Get your team together
  2. Decide how you’re going to cover the miles
  3. Set up your fundraising page 
  4. Check out our training hub for advice on getting ready and keeping safe
  5. Walk, run, cycle – anyway you choose – get your miles covered to race to the North Pole by Christmas!
