Bali is suffering hard during the crisis and our award-winning charity partner is focussed on supporting the disadvantaged communities that need the most help.

The $50,000 we are seeking to raise will make a huge difference both in keeping kids at school, supporting health and hygeine programmes and providing emergency food deliveries.     

  • $25 provides a family of four with food for a month. 
  • $250 supports a child through school for a year.     


The Bali Hope Challenge takes place throughout November.

Is The Bali Hope Challenge open to all types of physical challenge?

Yes, The Bali Hope Challenge welcomes team members taking on any kind of challenge which is meaningful to them. It could range from a first time 1/2 marathon, "couch to 5km" or a 24 hour 100 mile ultra marathon.

Your challenge, your distance, anytime, anywhere.    

Is there a certain distance I need to set and achieve with my Bali Hope Challenge?

You are welcome to join with any type of challenge. We all have different starting points on our fitness journey and any run, swim, bike, walk or personal challenge is welcome.  We know from experience that once we all start to connect the inspiration builds and you may make your challenge longer and achieve more than you first thought possible.
