Take on the Homemade Olympic Challenge and support children across Scotland

Coronavirus has changed our lives. Children and families across Scotland need your support more than ever before.

As we all emerge from this crisis more children and families will need vital help. Together we can build a better normal which supports children, families and communities to repair, recover and become stronger.

You can make sure every child and family get the help, advice and care that they need. Give your support and have fun by taking part in our Homemade Olympic Challenge.

Be a champion!

Take part in the Children 1st Homemade Olympic Challenge. Become a medal winner from your own home, garden or local park.

There are no rules. Use your imagination, get active, have fun and raise what you can to help children and families across Scotland. You can make sure they get the help, advice and care that they need.

This challenge is perfect for anyone: from individual entries to families, groups of friends and corporate teams.

All participants will receive medals for taking part and whoever raises the most money for Children 1st will be presented with their very own trophy!
