It's easy to take part

1. Donate £10

Donate £10 to sign up and start fundraising for more! Let people know and encourage them to donate or join you on the challenge. Every pound raised will help us still be here for children.

2. Plan your climb

Climb the Eiffel Tower (1,710 steps), take on a timed climb challenge, with a virtual team or with family. Whether you climb indoors or outdoors, make sure you know the height of your step so you can track the total height you climb.

3. Stay safe

Climb your stairs, or race up the steps in the park. Make sure you stay safe and if outside, follow government guidelines.

How your fundraising makes a difference

We’ve seen a surge in calls from children worried about the coronavirus – feeling anxious, scared, even trapped. Sadly, home isn’t a safe place for every child, but Childline can be their lifeline. 

“I really want to get out of the house and be somewhere safe and happy. I’m scared that my parents will get angry and hurt me more if I tell someone.”*
