Take part in a sponsored event to raise money for CAFOD

Raise funds for CAFOD by taking part in a sponsored event.

Search for an event near you then tell us about your event to join Team CAFOD.

How your fundraising can help

£5 can provide a shovel for farmers in Sierra Leone

£15 can buy a hygiene kit for a family affected by floods in Pakistan, providing them with essentials like soap to help them stay healthy

£80 can stock a beehive for a family in Nicaragua so they are able to make honey to eat and sell

£750 can provide the materials and training to dig a borehole, bringing clean, safe water to communities in Ethiopia

By buying your own place in an event, you'll save CAFOD this upfront cost and we can ensure all of your sponsorship goes towards our essential work overseas. We won't set you a sponsorship target but will support you in raising as much as you can.

Our brilliant CAFOD volunteers across England and Wales organise sponsored events for CAFOD. Keep an eye on our events page for the latest on events near you. 

If you want to take on an extra special challenge, the Camino de Santiago de Compostela is a pilgrimage hiking through the fields of northern Spain underneath the milky way. Find out more about the Camino de Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage.

As part of Team CAFOD you will receive:

  • an awesome running vest
  • a comprehensive sponsorship pack
  • Most importantly, we will ensure that any sponsorship you raise will make a real difference to the lives of men, women and children living in poverty overseas.

Please let us know via our online form once you've entered your event so that we can welcome you properly to Team CAFOD. We'll be in touch to wish you luck and send you a vest. In the meantime you can start collecting sponsorship today by setting up your JustGiving page or downloading a sponsorship form.

If you would like to organise an event to raise funds as part of your challenge, make sure you download our How to Guide and take a look at our event toolkits.
