Challenge Yourself

And raise vital funds for Accessible Arts & Media

Do something incredible in 2024. Take on the challenge of a lifetime and raise money to help us create an inclusive society, where everyone gets the chance to shine.

What is a Challenge Event? 

A challenge event can be anything you challenge yourself to do. They can be sports events where you might have to run for a long period of time, like a marathon. Or they might be a group event, where a team works together to reach a target, like the finish line of a Dragon Boat Race. 

We love writing about our fundraising heroes here at AAM – maybe you can be next? 

Here’s some inspiration to get you started.
