For the first time, we are thrilled to have places available for a whole host of exciting charity challenges.

The money you raise could really make a difference as 93p in every £1 we receive goes directly to our valuable work.

Sea Cadets helps 14,000 10 to 18-year-olds in 400 communities across the UK to develop self-belief and skills for life.

Our challenges are a team effort between you and us — we offer you support as you prepare for your challenge, while you will be helping thousands of young people across the UK through your fund-raising.

We have sporting challenges, such as the Prudential RideLondon and the Royal Parks Half-Marathon. The Snowdon Triple Challenge is a tough multi-activity trial, while aspiring sailors may enjoy a day on the Solent with our Maritime Industry Regatta.

If you would like to make a trip abroad, take a look at the Zambezi River Challenge. You will paddle along the border with Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe, heading for Victoria Falls, where you will raft the rapids.

If you are interested in any of these challenges, please email
