#TeamEmpire is a group of amazing people who have one major thing in common – they are all dedicated to transforming the lives of young people.

Those in #TeamEmpire do this in many ways, from long-distance running, to cycling or baking. From fundraising on Facebook to making us Charity of the Year in their workplace.

#TeamEmpire is a community of people built around the understanding that by doing something individually for Empire Fighting Chance, they can collectively have an enormous impact on the lives of the young people we work with.

2018 was the year in which #TeamEmpire grew exponentially, with hundreds of people engaging with Empire Fighting Chance through sponsored challenges, individual fundraising activities, advocacy and volunteering. Every second that #TeamEmpire committed to Empire Fighting Chance was a second that helped to change a future for a young person. And every penny raised was a penny that helped a young person to raise their aspirations.
