Virtual challenges

Ever fancied climbing Mount Everest or trekking the Inca Trail? With our virtual events, you can do just that and more by taking on a sponsored challenge on your own or from the comfort of your own home. Whether you want to walk, run, cycle or trek we have the perfect challenge for you. 

As the coronavirus crisis continues the RSPCA must continue to rescue and care for animals. But our dedicated teams are being stretched to their limits, and the number of animals in our care is set to rise.

Any sponsorship you raise as part of your challenge, could save an animal from suffering during this health crisis.

Raise £50 to earn your very own Team Animal running top or cycling jersey. Please note, your top will be sent out when government restrictions have lifted. 

Whatever you decide to do, please don't forget to stay up to date with the latest Government advice.
