From time to time we like to do something for charity and on 1 April 2014 we took part in the Cheeky Monkey’s Marathon Challenge, a sponsored event to raise money for children with cancer.
Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. It funds lifesaving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer and works to protect young lives through essential welfare and campaigning programmes.
A marathon is 26 miles long and so for our event the Cubs had to complete 26 challenges. They varied from the physical (catch 10 balls), to Scouting (tie a reef knot) to mental (name 3 Scout camp sites). We had a great evening and the sponsor money is already starting to come in.
