Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I REGISTER TO COMPLETE THIS CHALLENGE?

The challenge is run by Action Challenge and you should register directly with them. During registration, you can choose to fundraise for Help for Heroes. If you do, we will be told about you automatically and will be in touch. 

WHERE DOES MY FUNDRAISING GO?

Half of your fundraising target (dependent on the distance you choose) needs to be received by the Charity no later than eight weeks before the challenge. This covers the cost of your participation in the challenge.

Anything you fundraise over this amount is the money that Help for Heroes can use to provide lifelong support to our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel, Veterans and their loved ones.
