Don’t just go on holiday – discover remote and beautiful places while raising hope for children.
Are you tired of the same old sponsored walks, cycles, swims and runs? Do you need some extra special inspiration to get fit? Do you want to really see the world? If so, a world challenge could be just what you’re looking for. Take your adventure of a lifetime through remote wilderness in far flung places, and help us climb mountains for children with cancer.
Adventure of a Lifetime
Discover somewhere new this year on the adventure challenge of your life, and help us bring the promise of life and sight to every child with eye cancer.
Experience some of the wildest and most beautiful places on earth, and make memories that last a lifetime. You’ll be part of a small, encouraging group of like-minded people, and the sense of achievement on completing your challenge will be enormous.
Finding Hope in the Heart of Africa
Have you ever wanted to see the sun rise from above the clouds, or camp under bright stars, surrounded by the sounds of a velvet African night?
Come closer to the children we help in Africa by climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, trekking across the Great Rift Valley and Crater Highlands or the Massai Mara, or cycling through beautiful cool tea country. We can arrange for you to see our work in action in Kenya while you’re there.
Over 6 days In June 2005, our co-founder Abby White trekked 110km across Northern Tanzania’s sun baked game country. Read her account of the Charity Challenge experience.
