Join the Bearathon

To celebrate the arrival of the Bears of Sheffield this Summer, we are challenging you to run, walk, swim or cycle 2.75km a day, that's 82.5km throughout the month!

By taking part in the Bearathon challenge you are supporting the Bears of Sheffield and helping to raise much needed funds for Sheffield Children's.

We are also encouraging you to raise £2.75 a day for 30 days. This represents the £2.75 million that is needed for the new Cancer and Leaukemia Ward at the hospital.

The best bit is - there's a limited edition Bearathon medal up for grabs for everyone who registers.

What the Bears of Sheffield sculpture trail is all about!

This summer 60 Big Bears and 100 Little Bears will appear on the Sheffield streets, brought to you by The Children's Hospital Charity. The Big Bears have been painted by artists from around the country and the Little Bears have been painted by local schools. Generous businesses have sponsored our Big Bears helping to raise money for Sheffield Children's.

The Bears will raise vital funds to transform the Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
