2022 registration opening soon!
Take on the 16-mile YMCA DownsLink Challenge from Horsham to Shoreham-by-Sea and help us put young people experiencing homelessness back on the path to independence.
Linking Sussex to Surrey, the Downs Link pathway is how our YMCA got its name! Every night we provide a safe home to over 750 young people in your community. Each and every one has faced serious challenges in their lives. By walking or running the Downs Link pathway, you will help us give young people the skills they need to create a brighter, independent future.
Step out with us and together we can tackle youth homelessness!
