This tough, exciting one-day challenge will have you cycling, hiking and kayaking across the spectacular landscape of the Lake District before the sun sets. Every mile you trek and every penny you raise will help the NSPCC be there when a child needs them. Together they can rebuild children's lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore
