Trek Peru 2019

What's happening?

ITS HERE!!! Join us on an adventure of a lifetime!
Our 3 previous challenges have seen 112 people from all walks of life take part in life changing adventures biking around Cuba, Vietnam/Cambodia and Costa Rica. In total nearly half a million pounds has been raised for our children here at the hospice which has made a huge difference to the care that we provide.
Having completed 3 spectacular bike rides, we now want to try something a bit different so on Sunday 12th May 2019 a group of people from all walks of life will be setting off to Peru to trek the classic Inca trail and raise funds for Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice in Liverpool. Your support is vital to us as our Hospice needs to raise £1,600,000 every year just to keep the doors open and the care provided to our children is second to none.
According Trip Advisor’s Travellers Choice awards, Machu Picchu is still the number one landmark in the world and for very good reason. It is a spectacular location and an awe inspiring ancient city, unconquered by Spanish conquest in the 16th century and was virtually forgotten until around a hundred years ago.
You will trek the classic Inca route taking in:
- The beautiful Cloud Forest Lulluchapampa
-The Town above the Clouds (Phuyu Pata Marca),
-Warmiwanuska the Dead Women’s Pass which is 4,200m above sea level- an incredible achievement
-Intipunku - The Sun Gate which we will experience at dawn and will offer the iconic, unforgettable view of the lost city of the Incas, Macchu Picchu.
WHAT IS ZOË’S PLACE?
It is a Hospice specifically for babies and children from ages 0-5 who have life limiting or life threatening conditions. Very little support is given from the UK Government and fundraising is a vital part of the day to day running of the Hospice.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
This challenge is not easy. You will be trekking for up to 8-9 hours a day up very steep and difficult terrain. You will need to train for months and be really focused. You will also have pledge to raise a minimum of £3,500.
HOW LONG AM I AWAY FOR?
The trip is 10 days long but the actual trekking is for 4 consecutive days. The rest of the time is for acclimatising when we arrive, travel and sightseeing. There is also an option to extend your stay just for ‘holiday time’ if you wish.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
Because the trip is some time away it will give you a real opportunity to get yourself fit. You will also have some great fun in getting your sponsorship money together whether it’s putting on a Karaoke night or sitting in a bath of baked beans. Between now and May 2019 you will always have the trip in the back of your mind. It’s hard work raising the money and even harder work getting to the level of fitness required but you WILL find that you will come out of it as a better person. This really can be a life changing experience for you.
The event is run by Classic Challenge who have years of expertise in this field and provide full support with tour guides, medics, cycle mechanics etc. They also know how to party at the end of it!
OK, I’M UP FOR IT.... WHAT DO I DO NOW?
You will need to complete the registration forms and pay a £400 non refundable registration fee although this can form part of your fundraising. We will then help to support you to raise a further £3,100 for our Hospice before the trip in May 2019.
THERE IS NO UPPER LIMIT ON WHAT YOU CAN RAISE... KEEP GOING!
