Lets go!

There are 1.5 million people with a learning disability in the UK. To help us support them, we’re going to be setting a challenge for our whole Mencap family – let's get moving for Mencap! 

You can help us by completing your very own challenge around the number 1.5. You could run 15km, do 150 press ups, or dance to 15 songs - it’s up to you, so get creative and do something you enjoy!

Set yourself a challenge

No matter if you’re running, walking, wheeling, jumping, dancing, planking, or anything else, your challenge won’t just make you feel amazing at the end of it - you'll be helping us raise money so we can continue to provide vital support to the people who need it most.
