Emma's JET10 Challenge

Our inspirational CEO, Dr Emma Egging, is taking on her own JET10 challenge, to shine a spotlight on the vital work that we do in our 10th anniversary year.

  • £74,357

  • 1253



Emma's 10 events began with a gruelling Grantham Canal Ultramarathon on 18th April, and will culminate in a grand finale at the beginning of 2022. Emma says: "Every challenge I’ve taken on so far, from my 33-mile ultramarathon back in April to my caving scramble this October, has forced me to step out of my comfort zone and 'feel the fear' of doing something new and challenging. That's what we ask of our young people at JET too, many of whom have faced significant life challenges that have been the catalyst for them losing confidence and focus at school".

With just one event left to go, can you Help Emma reach her target of £100,000 by April?
