Sick Kids Save Point

Sign up for free!

As the UK's biggest 24 hour gaming marathon, Sick Kids Save Point invites gamers of all kinds to challenge themselves and help raise money for children and young people in hospital. 

It’s a very different kind of marathon, one which can take place in your living room! Sick Kids Save Point is a fundraising event set up by our long-term supporter and avid gamer Tom Freeman, who has raised over £100,000 since he began. 

The challenge is to play games for 24 hours straight, either in tag teams with family and friends or as a solo run. 

Whether it be on console, computer, mobile phone, Facebook or old-fashioned board games - everyone is a gamer, so all are welcome to sign-up!

Sick Kids Save Point is free to enter and there is no minimum sponsorship - just raise as much as you can.

(Under 18s must sign-up as part of a tag-team) 

You can visit the SKSP website for more information on the event - be sure to read the handy tips and safety section.
