Game to 5K

What is Game to 5K?

Game to 5K encourages children to swap the games consoles for their running shoes and run a 5K for Wooden Spoon.

By taking part, they will be funding life-changing projects that make a real difference to vulnerable children, young people and their families.

How to get involved


  1. Set up a fundraising page for your child via JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving to raise money for Wooden Spoon.
  2. Begin training! Top tip: Start with smaller distances and build up day by day.
  3. Let us know when the 5K has been completed and we will send your child a special Wooden Spoon medal and certificate!
