Today, we are launching a fundraising challenge for the summer. We’re calling on schools, families and the Armed Forces community to take part in a virtual ‘Climb Your Mountain’ adventure. Working with Umbali, we have set up a ‘Climb your Mountain’ web page to give you all the resources you need to get started.
During the school summer holidays we’re encouraging you to sign-up to walk, run, swim, climb or cycle a distance equivalent to climbing Mount Snowdon, Kilimanjaro or up to Mount Everest Base Camp. If you’re feeling really ambitious you might want to take on all three! People of all ages can take part, either individually or signing up as a family, class or team of friends. Any military children participating will receive a special Little Troopers fundraising badge.
Louise, founder of our charity, comments: “We would love to see families, groups and the military community from all three services come together this summer to take on our Climb Your Mountain Challenge and summit new fundraising heights for our small charity. Together, we can ensure that little troopers feel supported, whenever they need it and wherever they are in the world.
“The beauty of this challenge is that anyone can take part. You can adapt it to make it easier or harder depending on your age and fitness level. From families, friends and welfare teams, to individual serving personnel, spouses and military children – let’s all unite this summer to climb a mountain for Little Troopers.”
The sponsored challenge is being hosted on fundraising platform, Umbali. Once you sign up you’ll be able to see an animated map of your progress on your chosen mountain route. You can share the map to keep your team motivated and to gather more supporters. Complete the distance in your own time, at a pace you find challenging for you. To make things even easier you’ll be able to connect your challenge to Strava or Runkeeper to log your miles.
