Sponsors and celebrities

We are really grateful to the companies and individuals who help us deliver Challenge events to the highest standards, in the most cost-effective way, giving our participants the greatest support.

Thank you also to those celebrities who take on a challenge themselves, not only putting in the training and fundraising but also helping us promote our events.

Thank you to all of you!
