Trek the stunning landscapes of three countries across the Alps!

About the Challenge: This challenge is perfect if you’ve got limited time available! You’ll trek across the Alps in three countries in just three days, taking in the unbeatable views of cliffs and waterfalls in the Mont Blanc region. Have a look at the brochure for more information.

When: 8th – 12th September 2021

Distance: 46km approx.

Our favourite highlight: It has to be the views – those mountains and Swiss villages are incredible!

How fit do you need to be? This trek is graded as ‘Tough’ which means that while it is challenging, it should be achievable by anyone as long as you train beforehand.

Costs: You will be required to pay a non refundable registration fee of £199 at the time of booking. After this there are two payment options:

Minimum Sponsorship (Option A): With this option you fundraise a minimum amount of £2,170 sponsorship for Penny Brohn UK out of which we pay your challenge costs (£1,085).

Self Funded (Option B): You personally cover the full costs of the challenge out of your own pocket which is £1,085 and then fundraise as much as you can; all of which comes to the charity.

On the trek you will be provided with a Global Adventure Challenges Leader, professional local English speaking guides, accommodation, drinking water, all meals, a UK doctor to travel with the group, your return flights and all accommodation. Check out the itinerary for more details of what is and is not included.

Why should you do it? Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.With over 50% of us living with cancer for 10 years or more, the challenge now is living well with an uncertain future, particularly during these uncertain times.  Did you know that

1 in 3 people with cancer have depression or anxiety
9 out of 10 people with cancer have emotional, social, or physical unmet needs at diagnosis

You can make a lasting difference to these people. While the NHS does incredible work in treating cancer, our expertise is vital in helping people understand what it is to live as well and as long as possible. In taking on this trekking challenge you’ll be fundraising to allow us to support cancer patients to regain control of their lives, to remember that they are more than their cancer diagnosis.
