Challenge 21 is back!

Due to the success in its inaugural year, Challenge 21 is back again in 2022!

Challenge 21 is inspired by the Roberts Family who have been fundraising for the WCH Foundation for 16 years in memory of their son, Sam.

Last year, in honour of Sam’s 21st birthday, we launched Challenge 21, so that anyone, anywhere can take on any challenge they like to support sick kids.

Learn more about the story behind Challenge 21 here.

Choose your own challenge

This year, we want everyone to take on a challenge to support sick kids between 19 September and 9 October.

It’s simple; choose a challenge related to the number 21. You could run 21km, give something up for 21 days, or get creative and come up with your own challenge. Then, get your friends and family to sponsor you and raise funds for some of South Australia’s most vulnerable children and their families.

To help you decide what challenge you’ll come up with, take a look at some of last year’s challenges:

  • Read 21 books
  • Complete 21 random acts of kindness
  • Swim every day for 21 days
  • Have no chocolate for 21 days
  • Run 21km
  • Bake 21 goodies
  • Perform 21 gigs
  • Learn 21 songs on guitar
  • Have no junk food for 21 days
  • Catch up with 21 friends
  • Exercise for 21 days
  • Make 21 artworks
  • Give 21 haircuts

To up the ante, you could take on a challenge with your friends or family, or even get your school or work involved!

Your fundraising will help improve the health and wellbeing of women, children and families under the care of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and its associated Health Network.
