Charity challenges and fundraising treks

If you would like to run a charity challenge or run a charity expedition or several charity expeditions around the globe, then we can help you with a personalised and experienced service. Whether it's aKilimanjaro charity climb for your organisation or a fundraising trek to Everest Base Camp or something a bit different like climbing the highest peaks in Morocco, then we've been the provider for many national and international charities for three decades. We're well used to organising charity challenges for groups or individuals and we've the experience to ensure it's safe, professional and fun! We provide a personalised advice service from qualified mountain leaders, and we don't tie you in to target contracts for groups. 

 

Climb a Mountain for Charity

We comply with the British Standard BS8848 for overseas expeditions and mountain climbs for charity, which will give you an assurance that you are in good hands throughout your climb and that you will have a safe and enjoyable time with us. 

We don't have punitive contracts and nor do we have conditions on numbers. We offer a competitive group rate which includes pre-trip advice and training, and excellent staff on the ground to provide the additional support needed for groups that have their focus on both the challenge and the fundraising target.  

Kilimanjaro Charity Climb

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro for Charity

We offer several different options for charity expeditions on Kilimanjaro. You can come climb solo or a normal advertised climb and fundraise for your favourite charity.

We work in partnership with our own charity Moving Mountains and we organise charity trekking challenges for it, so we understand the needs of the charity in terms of risk assessments, training, safety and branding. We can provide your own branded page on this site for your supporters to sign up if you wish, or we can work directly with your office.   

Becoming X and Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

We have partnered with Becoming X to offer an additional charity climb up Kilimanjaro. Becoming X is a charity focused on helping people all over the world realize their full potential. We believe that everyone, from all walks of life, can be extraordinary. Sometimes, situations out of that person’s control limit their ability to showcase what they are made of. Becoming X helps others gain important skills such as confidence, resilience, and leadership. Our becoming X trips offer climbs up both the Lemosho and Machame Routes.

Charity Challenges and Fundraisers in Kenya

We offer several charity options in Kenya including Mount Kenya, which we also run ourselves as a charity trek for Moving Mountains. . If you’d like to check out Mount Kenya traverse the mountain for a good cause, we highly recommend this challenging route which starts in Naro Moru and finishes in Embu, ascending Point Lenana Peak. 

With Moving Mountains we also run a Social Enterprise Kenya expedition focussing on gaining insight and first-hand experience with social entrepreneurship in east Africa. In essence, social entrepreneurship focuses on giving the local communities the tools they need to create a sustainable, social business to help local communities in need. It’s an excellent way to engage in cultural exchange and take part in the sense of community that Kenya is famous for.  

These trips focus less on physical activity and more on community learning and this is another type of fundraising trip you can discuss with us, and which we can easily customise to your needs.

What Kind of Shape do I Need to be in for a Charity Adventure?

Since our adventures vary, so does your level of physical fitness. Due to the areas you’ll be traveling in, being in an overall good health is a good idea. Speak with your local doctor prior to traveling with us to make sure you’re fit enough to travel.

For our climbs to Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya, a decent level of fitness is required. If you’re a regular hill walker you should be able to handle both climbs. Neither climb is technical, and proper acclimatization is the primary concern. See individual climbing pages for more information regarding physical fitness.
