QKA-TREKKERS - Peaks Challenge.

QKA-Trekkers -Jacobs Ladder

Over half term we completed our first practice walk.

We had a really successful walk and have our first lap planned and organised.

The fundraising page is now set up below, please donate and share, every penny does make a difference and this will go to our students to give them the opportunities that they wouldn’t be able to afford.

The big walk is on Saturday May 7th where we will complete all 3 peaks in 10 hours 😊, therefore we have 11 weeks to get fit and raise as much money as possible, I would like a minimum of £5000 !

Thank you for your support !

3 Weeks to go !

We have just over 2 weeks until our big challenge and we are over ½ way with our target. Don’t forget all the money we raise goes directly back to our students in bids for enrichment opportunities.

Over Easter our team has not rested and across the Country and Europe they have been training hard. This is a personal challenge for all of us for many different reasons and the commitment and passion the people are delivering is amazing.

Thank you for supporting us !

Final Reading

A view

We faced injury and extreme tiredness, but each and every one of the team were absolutely awesome and worked together to achieve our goal.

We are all exhausted, stiff, bruised ,sunburnt and very delicate, but incredibly proud.

As it stands we have raised 71% of our target with more money to come at £3640.

If you see us please be gentle and congratulate our amazing trekkers !
