Join us on this once in a lifetime adventure, take on the Great Wall of China challenge.
Zig zag your way across China as you cross watchtowers, snake across mountains, pass over historic battlements and climb the ‘Heavenly Ladder’ at Mutainyu.
In 2010 we conquered Mt Kilimanjaro raising £95,500, then, in 2011 we explored the Inca Trail raising £51,000. On the back of these successful treks you can join us in 2012 for an exclusive trek to visit the one and only Great Wall of China.
You will even get to leave your mark on the Great Wall by laying a brick in a section that is currently being restored.
Why should I do it?
Conquering the twists, turns, steps and slopes of this magnificent structure is surely one of the greatest achievements imaginable. But there’s more to it than that. Sadly, cancer will touch almost everyone at some point in their lives. Here we believe that everyone affected by cancer should have access to life-changing care and support, but we need your help to make this happen.

Josephine Bush, former challenge participant
“Those who have used the services of Penny Brohn Cancer Care have had to climb more than mountains. This served as an inspiration in our bid to complete our challenge. We realised that nothing is impossible when you put your mind to it and this combination of the mind and body, pushing it, challenging it and working with it, is also at the heart of what Penny Brohn Cancer Care does.”
