By fundraising for The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust, you’re helping us to provide lifelong support to children and their families affected by eye cancer, raise awareness of this little known and devastating condition and fund research into prevention and treatment. We don’t receive any government funding so we rely on the generosity of the public. Thank you so much for your help.

Great Wall of China

“You have not lived if you have not been to the Great Wall” or so the Chinese saying goes, and it’s not surprising why! The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zigzags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys.

This is a fantastic five-day hike, taking you over watch towers and mountains, and through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail. For more information about this challenge, please download the brochure.

  • Distance: Up to 8 hrs a day
  • We have: 10 places
  • Pledge to raise: £3,099

Trekfest 2017

Choose your location. Choose your distance. TrekFest is the UK’s ultimate trekking challenge – an epic trek across either the Brecon Beacons, South Wales or the Peak District, Derbyshire.

The challenge is simple – complete your chosen distance while raising money to support CHECT. Taking on TrekFest is by no means a walk in the park. It’s tough and will challenge you both physically and mentally, pushing you beyond your limits but with the right training and preparation it is achievable – as thousands of trekkers over the last four years will testify! TrekFesters say it’s truly life changing and proves that anything is possible. The sense of achievement you’ll feel crossing the finish line is indescribable. For more information, watch the TrekFest video or download the brochure.

  • We have: 30 places
  • Pledge to raise: £165 for 25km treks, £300 for 50km treks
