Are you looking for an exciting challenge to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy UK next year? We have three overseas challenges for 2019, all fully supported by experienced group leaders.

From the iconic London to Paris cycle challenge, trekking to the lost city of Machu Picchu or reaching the peak of Africa’s highest mountain – Mount Kilimanjaro, our overseas challenges offer a once in a life time opportunity to raise funds in the fight against muscle wasting conditions.

Sean Keenan trekked to the summit of Kilimanjaro with friend Charlie Millin in 2017 and between them raised £11,500 for Muscular Dystrophy UK.

Sean said:
“It was without doubt the hardest physical challenge I’ve ever done in my life and mentally battling too, but standing at the summit, I was filled with an immense sense of achievement. Most importantly though, it gave me the opportunity to raise a significant amount for our Family Fund campaign – I Fight for James. Despite the discomfort, long days and altitude sickness it was an amazing experience and one I would definitely recommend.”
