Great North Air Ambulance Challengers
Ever fancied climbing Mount Kilimanjaro? How about a 24 hour endurance challenge across the Lake District?
You can now partake in these once-in-a-lifetime experiences while raising money for the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) at the same time.
Great North Air Ambulance has teamed up with Life Changing Challenges to give supporters some more extreme fundraising opportunities.
The Lake District challenge, taking place on June 29 and 30, involves a 24 hour mixture of canoeing, cycling, hill-walking and abseiling as participants make their way from Lake Windermere to Bassenthwaite Lake. Covering 71 kilometres in total, the challenge will test even the most resilient participant.
Anyone wishing to take part for GNAAS must raise £500 plus a £50 deposit. Alternatively they can self-fund for £300 plus the £50 deposit.
The Mount Kilimanjaro trek departs the UK on September 13 and spans ten days. It will take participants through dense forest, across rocky terrain, and up the 5,895ft of Earth’s highest free standing mountain.
Those wishing to take part in the charity trek must raise £3,000 plus a £399 deposit. Anyone wishing to self-fund the trip must pay £1,796 plus the £399 deposit.
Mandy Drake, deputy director of fundraising at GNAAS, said: “These two challenges truly offer a life changing experience for those taking part and we are excited to offer them to our supporters. Not only are participants signing up for the challenge of a life time, they are also going to raise money for GNAAS in the process. It’s a win-win.”
Abbie’s Army Lakes Challengers
Abbie’s Army have joined forces with Life Changing Challenges for a very special event! On 25th-26th May, 2013 our team of 20 ‘M.A.D -Mum’s Against DIPG’ will take part in a gruelling 71km, 24hr challenge .This is an almost complete crossing of the Lake District from South to North including canoeing, cycling, climbing and an abseil.
Amanda Walker of Abbie's Army said "We have an extraordinarily enthusiastic team and one HUGE message to get across all in support of children’s brain tumour research.
In 2011 three Mum’s in our group sadly had their little girlsdiagnosed with DIPG brain cancer, a universally fatal tumour with a median life expectancy of just 9-12 months…no treatments, protocols and no cure.
On what would have been the 8th birthday of one of these precious angels our three special girls have bought us together on this mission, raising awareness and vital funds for an area of cancer research that is so severely underfunded.
Being listed with Life Changing Challenges has given us the opportunity to offer our supporters this truly life changing experience whilst raising funds for our charity to, which is exciting. We’re looking forward to encouraging many other adventurers with further challenges in the future!"
