Have you ever wanted to trek to Machu Picchu?
Or been there and want a trip back up memory lane?
Does the idea of trekking 66km reaching 4,450m interest you?
Due to Covid 19, we unfortunately can't travel to Peru to complete this incredible trek however we remain committed to fundraising for our charity projects and to providing ways for you to keep up your exercise with us.
Want to do the real Machu Picchu trek in 2021 with us? Check out the dates for next year here.
Are you up for this virtual charity challenge?
Then join us along with our wonderful Chairwoman, Anne Edmondson, and Charity Director, Elaine Kelly, starting Saturday 1st August at 4pm for our Charity Challenge: The Virtual Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
CHARITY PROJECT: This charity challenge will empower you to virtually walk the same distance to one of the most beautiful wonders of the world while contributing funds for our charity project in Peru, Chichuchas Wasi. Together, our goal is to raise USD 14,000 (AED 50,000) to support classroom renovations, building a playground facility and supporting dormitories for students at Chichuchas Wasi.
Here’s how it works:
- Make a minimum donation of AED 100 to register through YallaGive.
- You will then receive an email providing all the information and instructions you need to take part.
- Download Zoom to your device and join us at the virtual start line for the warm-up, then off you go!
You will have 10 days to complete the challenge. There will be pictures and videos shared with you as you progress so you can get a feel for what the real Machu Picchu trek is like. A few surprises along the way too!
Driven by the impact of the COVID-19 world-wide crisis, our charity projects need your support more than ever before.
Our international challenges are currently on-hold. We are trying to still support our charity projects through other events until we can get back to the mountains.
Your donation will go a long way to support our project, Chichuchas Wasi in Peru. A comprehensive primary school for impoverished indigenous girls who attend free of charge. There are over 120 students from 4-12 years old. Cusco faces a lot of rain and sometimes extreme weather and the school currently does not have an indoor facility larger than a classroom for events, sports, theatre presentations, or otherwise. This project is to build a dry multipurpose room for these activities.
This event is pending approval from the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department.
