The Fundraising Hike
21 Oct 2021

A huge thank you to everyone who took part and raised funds for Climbing Out!

On the 9th October we took on Snowdonia’s peaks and a colossal £6,000 was raised in the process – despite the miserable weather!

This year’s fundraising hike brought together an awesome group of people, all keen to help Climbing Out. We are so grateful for their hard work and all the funds they raised for the charity.

The hike team showed that anything is possible with the right attitude and a good dose of determination. The plan had been to tackle 4 peaks, but some of the group summited 5 peaks in just one day!

We were particularly proud of Dave. Dave is blind and has previously attended our visual impairments programme. He wanted to show his support of Climbing Out. With the help of his guide dog, Elvis, he showed us that anything is possible with the right attitude!

We adapted the hike to incorporate 3 routes for different levels to make it achievable for everyone - even Elvis the guide dog!

We loved Jasmin's words on the day ‘my legs hurt, but my cheeks hurt more from all the giggles!’ That just sums up the fun atmosphere that got us through the challenge.

Our 2022 fundraising hike will take place on Saturday, October 1. We will be walking a section of Hadrian's Wall, starting from Birdoswald in Northumberland.

So, save the date! It’s a fun, sociable day out that funds our work changing people’s lives. We will announce more details on Facebook next year, so please follow us here for more updates.
