If you’re looking for an adventure and an opportunity to make a difference, then our overseas challenges are perfect for you!

Whilst providing an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience, it also offers the chance to make a positive impact on patients, and their families, cared for throughout our family of NHS hospitals.

Grab your boots and go on an exhilarating trekking adventure to the top of Tanzania as you summit Mount Kilimanjaro with our partner Global Adventure Challenge.

As Africa’s highest mountain standing tall at 5,895m, it’s a magnet for trekkers and climbers. The trek will take you along the beautiful Machame route, which allows you to gradually acclimatise to the altitude as you climb to the summit. Trek through dense tropical rainforest all the way up to the snow-capped peak to witness awe-inspiring views.

This is a tough but spectacularly rewarding challenge, so if you’re up to it, sign up and conquer the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro!

Challenge highlights:

  • Summit the world’s highest free-standing mountain
  • Trek along the beautiful Machame Route
  • Discover diverse landscapes, changing as you climb to the peak
  • Gaze in awe at a mountain on the equator capped with snow

*You pay the non-refundable Registration Fee to Global Adventure Challenges to administer the challenge, and to secure relevant permits. You then commit to raising the minimum sponsorship – 80% of the minimum sponsorship MUST be received by the charity no later than 12 weeks before departure. The charity will then pay for your Challenge Costs out of the sponsorship raised.
