The name K12Challenge stands for… Kids with 12 months to complete their Challenge.
We want groups of children to take on as many different sporting challenges as possible, to help raise money for charity. This year, the children have chosen to raise money for a local Riding for the Disabled Centre.
The goal is to raise £100,000 for the Cavalier Centre Project. The hope is that 100 groups will raise £1,000 each. Clearly £1,000 is a lot of money for kids to raise, but part of the ethos of the plan is to include and inspire as many children as possible to be involved and raise this money.
The idea is that each individual, or group, comes up with their own sponsored sporting challenge, ideally to be completed within the next 12 months.
Each child or group will then be recognised on a plaque or wall in the Cavalier Centre with their name, or group name underneath a commendation for their contribution to the building of the Cavalier Centre – they will be able to see the fruits of their labours and be part of an amazing team effort. We are asking school groups, cubs, guides and youth groups and in particular the pony and riding clubs, as they will also have a vested interest.
We have taken several children to spend some time at the Perry Group and see what the sessions involve and mean to others. What an amazing feeling for those children to make such a difference to so many lives. It gets them out and doing something active and sporting, it makes them part of an amazing movement and group effort, and it really will make the difference. We anticipate that their efforts will be admired and matched by other funders and without the grass roots work by the children to start it off, there would be no Cavalier Centre.
