How many miles will you complete?

To celebrate this year’s summer games, our mascot Tadworth is undertaking an incredible 25,000-mile virtual journey from our specialist centre in Surrey to Tokyo, Japan.

You can help contribute to Tadworth’s miles by doing your own sponsored challenge whilst raising vital funds for children with brain injury. Every step you take during the course of the challenge all counts. Take part and get on the leaderboard!

More about the children we support

Polaroid image of Lily with her name underneath

Lily is a pupil at our specialist nursery where she has learnt to walk independently through dedicated support that a mainstream school couldn’t offer.

Polaroid image of Josiah with his name underneath

Josiah is a permanent resident at our SEND school. Here he has access to powered mobility to help him get around as well as full time care and education.

Polaroid image of Riley with his name underneath

Ryley came to us for rehabilitation after experiencing a brain haemorrhage. With bravery and determination Ryley focused on relearning lots of the skills he lost.

“These steps may seem tiny to some but they are massive to us. There is no quick fix for a brain injury like Ryley's. It’s is a long slow process and every day we continue to watch him improve and feel the joy from his achievements. Ryley has refocused his goals and now aims to be a Paralympian.”

Ryley’s mum, Mel

Every 30 minutes a child in the UK experiences a brain injury. Help support those children
