This leap day, let's Leap into Action!

Get moving and have fun while fundraising for Starlight. The challenge is simple:

Sign up!

• Pick a movement that you can count. We want you to do your movement 366 times in honour of the leap year! You can use this list of ideas to help.

• Set up your JustGiving page and/or download our sponsorship form and let everyone know you're taking part in the challenge.

• On February 29th, at a set time or throughout the day, get moving and use our counter to tick off how many leaps you've done and see if you can hit the 366 goal! You can use these songs to help you.

• Take lots of pictures and share them on social at @starlight_uk to help raise more funds and awareness!

It costs just £5 to take part and when you sign up, you'll receive:

  • a T-shirt
  • skipping rope (which you can opt out of)
  • a notepad and pen to help you keep count

However you leap (hop, skip or seated star jump) we want you to have fun and remind people how important playing can be.

By signing up to Leap Into Action, you help us raise vital funds that ensure seriously ill children in hospitals across the UK can access play!

Schools, Companies and Groups

We will charge £2 for any number of more than 5 participants. Children can complete the challenge as a team!

If you want to sign up multiple people, please use the forms below.
