We are the only charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK


Come July 1st... All bets will be off... And it will be time for us to put up or shut up. The plan is to take on 135 miles of Death Valley National Park in under 30 hours.

Dubbed the HOTTEST place on Earth, the run isn't exactly flat and is quite literally uphill from the get go, starting 282 ft below sea level in Badwater Basin. The route passes over a number of mountain ranges and through valley after valley, finally ending on Mount Whitney.

This is one of the toughest events on the planet, which makes it all the more reason to dig deep and donate whatever you can to help the NSPCC. The NSPCC is a charity that believe every childhood is worth fighting for and is one in which we are incredibly proud to represent.

When times get tough, most of us have the luxury of having the option to make a change. Unfortunately we live in a not so perfect world and if by running 135 miles through the hottest place on Earth helps just one child then you can rest assure we will be there doing everything within our power to keep moving forward.

We know a lot of you have already donated to a lot of the adventures over the years but please think about the positive impact you will be making by donating to this cause. When the legs refuse to move in the extreme heat of the day, trust us when we say it is your messages and donations that offer that small push forward.

Thank you again for your continued support and we really don't know where we would be without your kindness!
