Signing up for one of our challenges gives you the chance to tick off a once-in-a-lifetime experience on your bucket list while fundraising for a fantastic cause.
When you sign up for one of our mind-blowing ‘challenge’ expeditions or activities, you are put onto a team, given a fundraising target for a particular charity, and if you hit it within the certain deadline set before the trip date, you get to go on this once-in-a-lifetime experience for a super affordable price.
While the targets might seem daunting, you’ll be supported at every stage by our charity reps, and your challenge leaders with fundraising ideas and resources. Teams often run events together like open mics, parties and raffles, or even sell Smack! Tickets and split the donations.
Through our promotion weeks, you can also come down to the particular information sessions you are most interested in for details on how to sign up and any questions you have. For the year 2022 -23, we have eight challenges as mentioned below-
