Challenge Events

The simplest tasks are incredibly difficult for someone with SMA. Originally taken on by children and teenagers who live with this condition, The SMA Trust challenges have managed to raise thousands of pounds, completing feats of courage and perseverance. Show your support for The SMA Trust, and challenge yourself by taking part in one of our many events detailed below.

Whether you’re a walker or a runner, a cyclist or a triathlete… or just an adrenaline junkie, there’s an event to suit you.
