Challenge Cancer Through Adventure is a Peak District based charity run entirely by volunteers. We help people who are based in our region who are living with cancer or a life threatening illness to change their outlook, rebuild convidence and regain control of their lives by undertaking an outdoor adventure challenge.
Challenge Cancer Through Adventure provides support, encouragement, advice and funding to help imagine, plan, prepare for, get fit for, and undertake an outdoor adventure challenge.
Challenges range from local adventures around the Peak District (including rock climbing, abseiling, hang gliding, paragliding and balloon flights) to great adventures all around the world (including mountaineering and trekking in the Himalayas and the Andes, sailing in Scandinavia, sea kayaking in the Mediterranean, and cycle touring in Europe).
Please help us to help more people.
If you or someone you know, who is based in the Peak District or the surrounding towns and cities, is living with cancer or a life threatening illness, we can help fulfil that next (or first!) great adventure challenge. Tell us what you want to do that will challenge and inspire you; we will help you make it happen.
