WHAT’S ON: Take a life changing challenge for Julia’s House


Local charity Julia’s House, are challenging readers to take part in one of five exciting events to make this a year to remember. 

With over five events to choose from, on two wheels or on foot, with family, with friends or with four-legged friends, it’s a great opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and achieve something great in 2020.  What’s more amazing is while you’re taking on your own personal challenge, you are raising funds to help children living with life-limiting conditions and their families with the challenges they face every day.   

You can choose from a once-in-a-lifetime trek to Machu Picchu through the Peruvian Andes mountain range, a walk along the breath-taking Jurassic Coast or among ancient Wiltshire landmarks, a tandem skydive from 13,000 feet, the Big Ride cycle challenge with a choice of three distances, or slip on your running shoes for the new look Run Bournemouth event with a range of distances, junior races and a new dog jog for 2020.

“Our challenge events are so rewarding as you know you’re not only challenging yourself, but you’re also making a life changing difference to local children and their families who face their own huge challenges every day,” says Hannah Miller, Challenge Events Manager for Julia’s House.  “Our families are in desperate need of the very special support we provide out and about in the community or at our hospices.   We need people to sign up, take a challenge and fundraise, so we can continue to make a life changing difference.  There isn’t a better feeling than achieving a personal goal knowing that it is helping others.  Spaces are limited so people need to register as soon as they can!”

The challenge season starts on Saturday 7 June with Jurassic Coast trek along Dorset’s stunning coastline, followed by The Big Jump sky dive on Saturday 1 August.
