Join the 700 Challenge

One in 700 babies is born with a cleft lip and/or palate (cleft); that’s three every day in the United Kingdom (UK). This is why the 700 challenge was created - we want to raise awareness of cleft and what it’s like to be part of the exclusive “club”.

Our vision is that no-one affected by cleft in the UK will go through their journey alone, and this is a challenge that everyone can take part in! You can choose your own challenge and help us achieve that vision. Let’s get started!

Choose any activity you would like, and do 700 of them within the 30 day period!

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 raise funds for CLAPA! 

Register now and we’ll send you a CLAPA t shirt to wear during your Challenge and a limited edition 1 in 700 pin when you have completed the challenge!

The possibilities are endless for the 700 challenge!
