the challenge

For the first time ever, we’re challenging you to STAY:UP all night, for just one night to help #endyouthhomelessness.

Take on the challenge of a night-time with your friends, family or colleagues, and cycle, walk, quiz, dance or paint ‘til morning.

Tackle your tiredness, fight the fatigue, banish bedtime and whatever you do, don’t fall asleep! However you STAY:UP, your one night without sleep could help a homeless young person turn their life around forever. Will you be #UpForTheNight?


Date: 8th & 9th October 2020

Time: 8pm-8am

Fundraising Target: £100… and up!

sacrifice sleep to help homeless young people

EYH member charities are taking part in the STAY:UP challenge, giving supporters all across the UK the opportunity to choose their nearest event and see the impact they are making in their local community.


Twelve hours might seem like a long time but we’ve got plenty to keep you entertained.

On the night we’ll be streaming messages and videos from our member charities and young people. You’ll get regular updates on the difference you are making and we’ll be sharing inspiring stories and photos from fellow ‘all-nighters’ up and down the UK.

Keep those energy levels high by creating your own agenda for the evening; here’s some idea’s we love…

  • Night time cycle
  • Midnight feast cook-a-long
  • Sunrise yoga
  • Daybreak disco

Plus lots more in the fundraising pack you will receive on registration! Remember to keep us posted and we’ll do the same on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
