The 700 Challenge

Take on the 700 Challenge this June to help CLAPA support the UK cleft community all year round.

One in 700 babies is born with a cleft; that’s three every day in the United Kingdom. The 700 Challenge is a way to raise awareness of cleft lip and palate while celebrating being in the ‘One in 700 Club’.

This is a challenge that’s only limited by your imagination – choose what works for you, get set, and go!

Let’s get started!

Choose any activity you would like, and do 700 of them within the 30 days of June. That’s around 24 lots of each activity every day.

When? The whole month of June

Where? Anywhere in the world

How much? It’s free to sign up

Your goal? Raise awareness of cleft and funds for CLAPA

We’ll send you a FREE CLAPA t-shirt once you’re signed up.

Complete your challenge to receive a limited edition ‘One in 700’ pin badge!

All the money you raise by completing the 700 challenge will help CLAPA to provide services and support for everyone in the UK affected by Cleft.
