Are you a walker, jogger, or runner looking for a big challenge? Why not support Julia’s House by taking part in an Ultra Challenge. There are lots of events to choose from throughout 2023 and there are three options for how you or a team can register and raise money.

To choose Julia’s House all you need to do is choose your challenge, find us under the listed charities and choose how you’d like to fundraise.

If you choose to complete a Ultra Challenge for Julia’s House, you will have a dedicated fundraiser who will support you in completing your fundraising.  We will also send you a Julia’s House wicking t-shirt for you to complete your challenge.

If you are interested in taking on one of these challenges and would like more information, please send your enquiry through to community@juliashouse.org.

"I really enjoyed the whole experience; training walks were great to keep me focused through the winter months and the best bit was the sense of achievement at the end. It was a wonderful feeling and the atmosphere and walk itself was great. Good to meet fellow walkers along the way and all in all a really enjoyable day that I would recommend to anyone who fancies a challenge."

“We don’t have any regular support network other than Julia’s House. The emotional, respite and clinical care that their nurses and carers offer is life changing for the whole family – it’s like having a trusted friend at the end of the phone, who will come over to help us whenever and however we need it most. The girls get so excited when they know the Julia’s House nurses and carers are coming over and I don’t hear laughter like it at any time other time than when they’re here. It’s a really special time for the girls just to be themselves and do what other four year olds take for granted.”
