Here’s how it works

Bring your school community together to take on a Lap of Hope challenge this summer and you'll be having fun while helping to change lives for the better.

  1. Sign up – register your school and set up your JustGiving page all in one go.

  2. Set a date – plan your Lap of Hope for any time during the summer term, maybe as part of your sports day or as an end of week celebration.

  3. Create your pledges – use our template(opens in new window) for pupils to create their wearable pledges, encouraging them to reflect on the world they want to see and their hopes for the future.

  4. Collect your donations – simply share your JustGiving page ahead of the event or on the day.

  5. It’s game on! Everyone pins their pledge to their T-shirt and then takes on a lap of the playground, the classroom or the local community.

Your fundraising will help tackle inequality, improve mental health and help young people to survive and thrive – whether they’re down the road or across the globe.

11-year-old Cameron is a bright, friendly girl with a cheery smile. But when lockdown started and lessons went online, her mental health rapidly declined. Cameron’s mum found a Sport Relief-funded project called Healing Hooves that's run by a charity called Stable Life.

Check out our learning resources based on the real-life story of Cameron to learn more.

Lap of hope in action!

Hundreds of schools across the UK have already signed up, with some taking on the Lap of Hope already, such as Livingston Village Primary School in West Lothian.

Their pupils created their own Power Pledges, grabbed some juicy oranges from the refreshment station, and then were on their way to complete the lap around their local community. It made for the perfect opportunity to have some fun while taking part in some life-changing fundraising.
