5k my way challenge!


Complete a 5k challenge, your way, to raise vital funds for Jigsaw South East! 

Every 22 minutes in the UK a child loses a parent, this equates to around 111 children being bereaved every single day.*  At Jigsaw South East we support over 500 local children and young people each year through the death of a loved one, but we can only do this with your continued support.  This is why we are asking you to set yourself a 5k, your way, challenge to help raise awareness of our service. 

Could you push yourself to swim, run or cycle, hop, skip or jump 5k?     

Maybe you could set up 5k my way Team Challenge?  A continuous backyard 5k relay with your running club, a 5k hopping team challenge with your scout or guide group or a daily lunchbreak 5k walk with your office team?   

This is your chance to get creative and do 5k, your way whilst supporting Jigsaw South East.
