Be a Brainwave Challenger!

Here at Brainwave, we are determined to continue transforming the lives of children with disabilities.

You can Support Brainwave in our mission to unlock children’s potential by taking on a Brainwave Virtual Challenge and become a Brainwave Challenger!

There are four distances to choose from, the challenges are open to all ages and abilities. 

500m Virtual Challenge


5k Virtual Challenge


10k Virtual Challenge


15k Virtual Challenge


You can choose how to complete the distance - run, skip, wheel, dance, row, cycle – the options are endless!

This is an open challenge so you can choose a preferred date to carry out your challenge.

We’ll send you a fundraising pack which will include a Brainwave T-shirt that you can wear when you are doing your challenge. And, when you complete your challenge, you’ll get a digital medal to celebrate your achievement. 

You'll be helping to transform children's lives 

We are a small UK charity that helps children with disabilities achieve greater independence through a range of specialist therapies.Our multidisciplinary team of qualified therapists create a unique Therapy Programme of exercises that can be continued at home.

We support children with a range of conditions including cerebral palsy, autism and Down syndrome.

We are adapting to the current situation by launching an online therapy service ‘Brainwave Online’. This will ensure families can access essential therapies from home via a secure video link with our qualified Brainwave therapists.

We need your support now more than ever. By raising sponsorship for your challenge, you'll ensure we can continue helping even more families. 

£10 - could pay for a wobble board that a family can take away with them to continue their Therapy Programme at home.

£20 - could pay for an hour of a Brainwave therapist’s time during an initial assessment or reassessment, which typically last for a day or two.

£30 - could pay for one of our therapists to attend a training day so they can keep up-to-date with their specialism and deliver the best advice and support to families.

£50 - could help towards the cost of a child and their family attending one of our three fully equipped Brainwave Centres for an initial assessment - starting their Brainwave journey.

£100 - could pay for a set of specialist equipment which we loan to families, free of charge, so they can continue their child’s Therapy Programme at home.
