Sports Relief takes place every other year, alternating between Comic Relief. It usually falls on years that coincide with the Summer and Winter Olympics, as well as the World Cup and European Championships. It is based around getting active, doing something you love or learning something you may end up enjoying. By fundraising for Sports Relief, the charity is able to help those with a diverse range of needs.
There are a number of great ways that you can get involved with Sports Relief. Whether that is joining in with national challenges or joining in with events at work or school, there is something for everyone of all ages and abilities.
Sports Relief believes that everyone deserves to live a happier, safer and healthier life. By choosing to get active for Sports Relief, it allows them to raise money to help tackle critical issues that affect people not just within the UK, but also around the world. Since 2016, Sports Relief has:
• Treated over 900,000 people across Africa with anti-malarial drugs
• Helped over 3.4 million people in Africa through neonatal, maternal and child health funding
• Helped more than 50,000 people in the UK living with a mental health problem
