Join us in our exciting new challenge and give the gift of water this Christmas.

Take on our first ever 6k in 6 days challenge to show our solidarity and support with rural communities in The Gambia who suffer from a desperate lack of clean drinking water.

6km is the average distance local women and children walk for dirty water.  And they often make that trip more than once a day ….

It’s a chance for all you to unleash your inner star!

Whether you run, walk, cycle, swim or take part in a virtual event, you can do it in 6 consecutive days or over a period of time.  Do it on your own or with your household, outdoors or around your home 🏠

Everyone who completes the challenge and raises at least £50 each will get a Behati Foundation t-shirt!

Not feeling challenged enough?

Grab your brightest, funniest or best festive outfit and do not forget to have lots of fun!
