There's a fundraising event to suit everyone, why not read some of our amazing supporter's inspiring stories to find out why you should take part in a Concern challenge.


I chose Concern worldwide because of its presences in many countries including Kenya, where I reside. My motivation to run the London marathon was driven by the sheer need to make a change in a vulnerable person's life.

Jael - Marathon runner
I wanted to do some fundraising to coincide with running the London marathon. Specifically I really wanted to raise money for a cause where really modest sums of money go on to make a huge difference.

As someone who is not a natural athlete, the Triathlon was a huge challenge for me. However, knowing that the money I raised was going to such a brilliant charity that really is saving lives all over the world was motivation enough to push through the pain and (slowly) make it to the finish line. Being able to see first-hand where money raised is going is astonishing, and for anyone thinking about fundraising for Concern - just do it!

We have been raising money by organising bun sales, a 24-hour sponsored fast from food and a sponsored silence so far. We are continuing to build and gain the confidence to do more to support Concern and the people affected by the Cyclone

I have completed six 24-hour FASTS to date, and I have raised a lot of money for the charity, £1,300 last year alone. I complete each FAST with a smile on my face as I know it is only for one day. I have been in many countries, including Niger, where people struggle daily and if I can do a 24-hour FAST for one day a year that is nothing compared to what others are going through on a regular basis.
