Join us on this long-weekend trek for charity, as we experience the beauty of one of the most breath-taking and largest deserts in the world – The Sahara!
 
Our charity challenge is to trek for four days through this ever-changing landscape and to climb to the top of the massive Chigaga Dunes, where we will witness the desert sun-rise. The days will be hot, and the trekking will be tough, but the rewards of being part of one of the best fundraising events around, conquering this desert and the pleasure of having the volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as our backdrop will be worth it!
 
With traditional Berbers as our guides, we’ll experience the delights of Morocco first hand, in addition to being mesmerised by the remoteness and solitude that the Sahara brings. If you want to take part in one of the most fantastic charity events but have limited time to take away from the UK, this most unique adventure in charity challenge events is for you.
 
There are two funding options for this challenge:
 
Option A - Minimum Sponsorship
 
You pay a registration fee of £175 then must raise a minimum sponsorship of £1700.  This amount covers your tour costs with the remaining money coming to a hospital of your choice.  This may seem like a big sponsorship target but our team will be here to provide help and advice to ensure you reach your goal.
 
Option B - Self Fund
 
You pay a registration fee of £175 and then pay your own tour costs of £850
 
Although there is no minimum sponsorship required, you can, if you wish raise additional funds for any of our hospitals.
