A Grand Trek ahead!

A Grand Trek ahead!

Posted on 16 November 2017 by Monika Reichelt

We are delighted to announce that our next Overseas Challenge in 2018 will be a trek of The Grand Canyon in the U.S.A!

This stunning challenge is a real adventure where you will see the Grand Canyon at its most magnificent. The challenge involves trekking 66km, over five days, into the canyon along the classic Bright Angel and Kaibab Trails, visiting the iconic Lake Powell and ending this incredible journey in Zion National Park. This is a challenge to a corner of North America that will without a doubt take your breath away. 

On completion of the trek, you will travel back to the glamour of Las Vegas to celebrate the end of the challenge in style and explore this iconic city before flying back home the following day.

The hospice trekking party will depart the UK on Friday 24th August returning on Saturday 1st September 2018. We’d love you to join us and take on this fantastic challenge whilst raising much needed funds for the hospice. 

Minimum sponsorship for this challenge is £4,000 with an initial registration fee of £299.00.  We know fundraising such a large amount is always daunting but we have a dedicated senior fundraising officer Graeme Strawhorn on hand to help you along the way.  Graeme will be happy to offer you tips and tricks on organising your own fundraising events and will happily provide posters, tickets and other materials to help you towards your fundraising goal!  Once you get going there’ll be no stopping you!

To date our overseas challenges have raised over £226,000 and you could really help us to ‘top up’ this amount in 2018!

So, why not take on the challenge!  For further information or to chat over any queries you may have contact Graeme on 01292 288488 or email events@ayrshirehospice.org
