Trekkers raise £72,000 for children with cancer

A team of trekkers reached the peak of the Atlas Mountains as they climbed 4,167 metres to the top of Mount Jebel Toubkal. The 15-strong team made up of a group senior executives from the housing sector completed the challenge whilst raising £72,000 to support children with cancer along the way.

Check out how they got on in Morocco by watching the video below:

World Child Cancer Chief Executive, Jon Rosser, was part of the team that completed the climb and said;

“It was so great to reach the top of Mount Toubkal, especially with everybody making it along the way despite the difficulties. It really was the hardest thing I’ve done in a very long time but it’s such a good feeling to have achieved it. Raising over £70,000 will make a huge difference to reaching more children that need our support and that, along with the achievement itself, makes it all worthwhile.”

The team beat their £80,000 fundraising target which could fund one of our programmes for an entire year. With proven success of increasing childhood cancer survival rates from as low as 20% to over 60%, these trekkers took on the experience of a lifetime whilst also giving children with cancer the gift of growing up.
