You are here


Is 2018 the year you decide to get fitter? Challenge yourself? Or do something memorable to help others?

Whatever your motivation, whether  you want a challenge, to see the world, to lose weight, remember a loved one or you want to help a local charity, we have a challenge event suitable for you.


At Katharine House Hospice we have UK and Overseas Challenge Events available to suit people of all ages and fitness abilities.  We use experienced third parties to ensure that all trips are safe and well organised.  You will be given a comprehensive training and fundraising guide and help and guidance available at all times to support you through your training and fundraising, to ensure that you have the best experience possible.



Our fundraising team can help you make the most of your efforts by providing advice, fundraising materials and moral support! If you are going to undertake a challenge why not raise money for your local hospice at the same time?
