The wait is finally over: registrations are now open to join this year’s DinoDay Stomp & Roar Challenge!

We’re excited to be running this exciting challenge for the second time after the incredible response we had to last year’s edition – with hundreds of families taking on creative activities to help raise over £15,000 in support of our vital services.

Register to take part today and we’ll send your child a FREE t-shirt and activity tracker (once your fundraiser gets at least one donation) so they can complete their challenge in style!

What’s the DinoDay Challenge?

The DinoDay Challenge is your chance to take on a fun activity of your choice in the run-up to DinoDay on 19 June to help us transform the lives of families with disabled children.

The activity you choose is totally up to your family – walk 19 miles, draw 19 dinosaurs, try 19 new foods… Whatever it is, just make sure the number 19 is involved!

How can I register to join?

Taking part in the 2024 challenge is easy – here’s how:

  1. Join our our DinoDay Stomp & Roar Challenge Facebook group
  2. Register for your free t-shirt and activity tracker by completing this quick form
  3. Choose an activity for your challenge
  4. Set up your fundraising page here and ask your friends and family to sponsor you, or download a copy of our sponsorship form if you’d prefer to fundraise offline

We’ll automatically ship your t-shirt and activity tracker once you receive at least one donation to your fundraiser. If you’re itching to get them now, you can make a donation to your own fundraiser and we’ll ship it straight away – any amount will do!

What’s DinoDay all about?

DinoDay is our annual fundraising event inspired by a little boy called Cameron Mathieson and his amazing family. With Contact’s support, they launched a long and ultimately successful landmark legal challenge that guaranteed no other child would have their DLA suspended while in hospital.

Cameron, who had Cystic Fibrosis and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, sadly passed away when he was five years old after spending nearly three of those years in hospital.

Every year since then, we celebrate Cameron’s birthday on 19 June with DinoDay – a tribute to Cam’s love of dinosaurs, especially his green triceratops called Troy!

As well as supporting our vital services, the funds you raise this June will also help us campaign to tackle the inequalities that families with disabled children face, like we did for Mathieson’s family and thousands of others since.
