What is it?


The 5 for 5 Challenge is a completely personalised event. We want you to complete a challenge over the course of 2016 that will benefit you at the same time as benefiting our chosen charities, Sands and Tommy’s. Simply choose a challenge around the theme of FIVE!

For example:

  • If you want to get yourself fitter, you could decide to run your first 5k by the end of 2016.
  • If you are constantly talking about writing that book but not actually doing it, you could pledge to write the first 5000 words – or even the first 5 chapters if you’re feeling plucky!
  • If you’re handy with the knitting needles but never seem to have the time, you could pledge to knit 5 baby hats for premature babies in your local Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The challenge can be as big or as small as you like, can be done by anyone, of any age, in any condition, from anywhere on the planet. Check out our ideas page for inspiration!
