WHAT IS THE SOCCER AID SCHOOLS CHALLENGE?
This summer get your whole school moving and help children everywhere to grow up happy, healthy and able to play. Just like children should. The Soccer Aid Schools Challenge is simple. Team up with your pupils to design an obstacle course to take on together, raising money to help UNICEF’s work for children around the world. Dribble, kick or bounce a ball, sprint, skip or hop across the playground and help kids have the playtimes they deserve.You can kick off your Schools Challenge any time from receiving your fundraising pack to the end of June. The pack will be full of tips from planning your challenge, to making sure it raises as much money as possible for children worldwide!
Play. Fundraise. Change children’s lives.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR CHALLENGE A SUCCESS
Set your fundraising goal. It’s important to set yourself an achievable goal!
It’s your pupils turn to get involved and plan a creative obstacle course. There will be lots of guidance and suggestions in your fundraising pack on how to do this.
Get fundraising! Pupils could bring in £1 to take part, get parents to sponsor them or hold bake sales to help reach their fundraising target. Again, you’ll find lots more suggestions in your fundraising pack and we encourage you to get creative!
Spread the word! Get your pupils to tell the world what they’re doing while getting as many friends and family involved as possible. We’d love to hear how you get on, so please share your photos and updates with us at [email protected]
WHY TAKE PART?
Soccer Aid for UNICEF helps children around the world to get the best start in life. Being able to play when we’re young affects how we think, learn, share and explore the world as we grow older.
Sadly around the world disease, hunger, conflict, poverty and disaster are disrupting play for millions of kids. But Soccer Aid for UNICEF supports children in those situations to get back to the play-filled childhoods they deserve. By taking part you and your school can change the lives of children around the world.
“The kids absolutely loved it”
“The challenge is such a fantastic opportunity for us to get our pupils outside, have a run around, and remind us all how important it is for children to be able to play.
The kids absolutely loved it and, as a member of staff, I loved seeing our students engaged in something meaningful.
We are so proud they could be involved in raising money for children all over the world.”
