December - Christmas is more...

Regular entry price £0.00 £12.00 Special Offer

Let's be honest 2020 hasn't been the year anyone expected, so we knew our Christmas 5k medal had to be extra special and meaningful.

Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store...

Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more!

We couldn't agree more with this statement!  Let's make Christmas extra special in 2020.

This Virtual Race runs throughout December and is a 5K run, walk, cycle, swim or TRI. The distance can be completed in one session or split across multiple.

This super sparkly medal is covered in sparkly black iridescent glitter and is a real treat for the eyes little and grown up.

The lovely matching neck ribbon is themed to match the hand holding the bauble.

The 5k distance must be completed in December but you can complete at your own pace.

All you need to do is sign up to the Virtual Race.

Kidscape is the anti-bullying charity that truly helps 6% of children in the UK experience bullying every day. That’s equivalent to one child per classroom. Bullying has an impact on self-esteem, mental health and a child’s relationships and educational attainment. Kidscape works directly with children and families experiencing bullying. We are committed to using the power of education to change lives and support teachers and others working with children to prevent and respond to bullying. Kidscape works in England and Wales. We provide workshops for children and their families, teaching confidence and assertiveness skills to tackle a bullying situation. After attending a Kidscape ZAP Anti-bullying workshop, 95% of children feel better about themselves and 98% feel more able to deal with a bullying situation. In the longer term, 90% of children experience an improvement in mental health and threequarters experience less bullying

Our vision

Is for all children to grow up in a world free from bullying and harm, with adults who keep them safe and help them to reach their full potential.

Our mission 

Is to provide children, families, carers and professionals with advice, training and practical tools to prevent bullying and protect young lives.

The importance of our work

Research by the Department for Education has shown that at least one child in every class is bullied on a daily or weekly basis.

Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power.

Bullying behaviour can take many forms, often in combination – such as verbal, physical, emotional or cyberbullying. Bullying is a child protection issue by law, and we all have a legal duty to keep children safe from bullying and harm.  

Bullying is devastating for young lives. Anxiety, depression, self harm and suicidal ideation are common amongst children who experience bullying, and the negative effects can be felt long into adult life, affecting academic achievement, relationships and long term mental and physical health.

We give hope and help to thousands of children and families each year and work with communities throughout England and Wales to help keep children safe.

The impact of our work

There are five main ways that we reduce the impact of bullying and harm:

Building communities of support

Reducing isolation and loneliness

Promoting positive relationships

Supporting resilience and wellbeing

Helping children recognise and respond to bullying behaviour.

See Impact for details of what we deliver and how it changes young lives.

Our values

We believe that every child has the right to live life free from bullying and harm

We believe that all adults have a responsibility for creating safe and nurturing environments for children

We value the role of parents and carers and work with them to keep children safe

We believe that by working together we can protect more young lives and actively encourage partnership work
