Funds Raised

ODAAT Challenge 2020

ODAAT is a drug and alcohol, quasi-residential, male only, rehabilitation programme.  It began about 25 years ago and grew out of a need to help the homeless people HOPE worldwide’s Two Step programme was housing, to deal with their addiction.

Join our challenge

We have organised an outdoor adventure which we call the ODAAT Challenge.  It began as a three day event walking up Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, however in later years we conquered different challenges, such as the Brecon Beacons and the South Downs with groups of walkers and runners.

The event helps us to raise funds and without these donations, we could not run our programme.  Our goal is for this year’s ODAAT Challenge to raise in excess of £20,000 to help meet programme costs.

The event

This year, the year of COVID-19, is our 12th ODAAT Challenge.  As we have had to embrace technology to allow remote working to keep our programme running, so too we are using technology to give more people the chance to get involved in this year’s challenge!

You can choose to participate by clicking the “SIGN UP” button on this web page and following the instructions to create your own event or join in the run/walk in London on the 31st October.

Ideally your challenge will need to be completed in the week or two before the 30th November when the donations page closes. You could do anything from daily hand stands in your back garden during October, to baking and selling cookies!

Another option is to join the our 10k and 20k route on 31st October, although this will be limited to 100 participants.  The start and finish is at St. Mark’s Church, 337 Kennington Park Road, London, SE11 4PW, opposite the Oval tube station. If you would like to do this as your fundraising event, we need you to email us at  if you plan to do the 10k or 20k route and how long you think it will take you and your shirt size.

Groups of 6 will then set off at 5 minute intervals from 10am with the slowest starting first.  We are asking all who decide to join this event to consider having a goal to raise at least £200.  Finishers will get a free tee-shirt to commemorate the event.

Remember, the site will stay open for donations till the 30th November.

Thank you for taking part!
