A loving home for every child

Athletic Events

Combine Your Athletic and Fundraising Goals

Combine your physical and fundraising goals to achieve a victory for yourself and children around the world. When you win, children win too.

Hosting a fundraiser is a meaningful way to give back and have a great time with your friends and family. It is easy to do and SOS Children's Villages will help you every step of the way.

Are you fundraising with a friend or a group of people? Create a team fundraising page to share in the fun.
