the real challenge

The waiting list for mentors in Reading continues to grow. Chapter2 is aiming to raise £100K to expand its operations to meet this growing demand.

Approximately 1 in 2 boys aged 15 are not living with both parents, of which >90% aren't living with their father.

Help bring an end to the fatherless generation by raising funds for Chapter2.

important information for fundraisers


The cost to participate in the Everest Mountain Marathon is £190 per person, which covers the costs of logistical support during the challenge. This is paid directly to our partner Will4Adventure.


All participants are expected to raise at least £1000 in sponsorship. Fundraising advice will be provided. Most fundraisers found it's much easier than they thought to raise £1000 (with the average per person in the last 3 years >£2000).


All funds raised by this challenge will go directly to support the expansion of Chapter2s work to write hope into the fatherless story.
