Go the distance challenge: Spring edition!

Take on a challenge in April and raise funds for Abortion Support Network! 

Every year thousands of people across Europe find themselves unable to access abortion care where they live, and they’re forced to travel hundreds of kilometres to clinics in another country. This April, you can help raise vital funds towards the cost of travelling for safe abortion care by taking on our new spring distance challenge. Pick your distance, find your team, and your fundraising could cover the cost of someone’s abortion.

Get started today!

This is a virtual challenge, and you can take part from anywhere. You can walk, run, jog, swim, cycle, skate or otherwise cover your distance – and everything you raise will go straight towards the costs of travel, accommodation, and abortion procedures in clinics for people in Europe who are trapped by bad abortion laws. From the event page, you can track your distance and see the other participants’ progress.

When: 1-30 April 2024
Where: Wherever you are!

Individual challenge: 100km in April (3.3km a day)

Take part as an individual and take on the 100km challenge. Step out for 3.3km per day and you’ll cover 100km in total – or you’re welcome to pick another distance, which can be customised on your fundraising page.

Group challenges

If you can team up with some pro-choice pals, together you can cover some common distances that our clients have to travel to get an abortion.
