The challenge

If you’re a climber in Cumbria come and join this shared fundraising challenge which will help turn despair to hope for families who’ve lost everything around the world.

The target is 100km and with 100 people that’s only one kilometre (3280 ft) each! Bring your friends and family and boldly go where no ShelterBox fundraiser has been before.

It’s not necessary to climb to support this event, but you’ll have a lot more fun if you have a go. Keep an eye on the event for news of sponsored awards and ways to help with fundraising.

*As indicated by the Karman Line, 100km above sea level, generally thought to be the boundary between Earth’s atmosphere and Outer Space.
