Story

I have volunteered to walk 14 marathons in 14 days across 14 European cities ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia to raise awareness of (and money for) Street Child United who run the Street Child World Cup.

There are an estimated 150 million Street Children worldwide; this is an enormous issue.

If you know nothing about Street Child United then watch this video or read this article to see why their work is so important to give Street Children a voice and campaign for global change

The Street Child World Cup, which took place in May 2018 provided a platform for the voices of children who have been at risk on the streets. During it they produced a Manifesto - a vital document that will tell the world what they need to leave the streets behind.  

We will arrive in Moscow ahead of the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. During Challenge14, we will take the Manifesto to cities in the European countries that have qualified to take part.

The aim of the Challenge is to increase awareness of the issues and to raise as much money as possible for Street Child United to enable it to continue its crucial work in this field.   

The Route: 

London  -  Brussels  -  Paris  -  Zurich  - Belgrade  - Zagreb  -  Berlin  -  Warsaw - Copenhagen  - Reykjavik  -  Stockholm  -  Lisbon  -  Barcelona  -  Moscow.

Please donate whatever you can and please donate in multiples of £14 e.g. £14, £28, £70, £140...£280...
