About The Challenge
Trekking Mt Snowdon during the day creates a great challenge and has been conquered by many… But what about trekking using torches to light your way and having the moon as your backdrop? You will feel a completely new sense of achievement as you watch the sun rise!
You will trek up Mt Snowdon by moonlight, ascending approximately 1,085m. Seeing the sunrise across Snowdonia National Park will be a memory never forgotten! Upon our descent, we will witness the breathtaking mountain range open up to give glorious views and afterwards we tuck into a delicious celebration breakfast!
Funding The Challenge
For all of our challenges you will be offered two funding options; these have been detailed for you below:
Minimum Sponsorship – This option means that the cost of your challenge is included in your fundraising target. You must raise the minimum amount set for the challenge which includes the cost and a donation for the charity; any additional funds raised above the target will be an additional donation for the charity. When you sign up for the challenge you will be asked to pay a non-refundable registration fee directly to Global Adventure Challenges. You will be asked to commit to raising the minimum sponsorship and sign a fundraising agreement by the charity. All of your sponsorship money will be paid to the charity who will be invoiced for the cost of your challenge. We ask that 80% of your sponsorship is received approximately 10 weeks before departure. We then ask that the remaining 20% is received no later than 4 weeks following your return from the challenge. You will receive full support from the charity to assist you with your fundraising, including advice, inspiration, materials and regular updates.
Self-Funding – This option enables you to fund the entire challenge yourself, meaning you do not have to commit to raising a set amount. When you sign up for your challenge you will be asked to pay a non-refundable registration fee directly to Global Adventure Challenges, and you will then be invoiced for remaining balance 10 weeks prior to departure. The balance will need to be paid no later than 8 weeks before departure. As a charity we would like to encourage you to raise as much as possible to support Cornwall Air Ambulance and help us continue to save lives. You will receive full support from the charity to assist you with your fundraising, including advice, inspiration, materials and regular updates.
