Climb Scafell Pike on 30th May 2021 and help Imran Khan Cancer Appeal (IKCA) save lives.
The IKCA 3 Peaks Challenge (3PC) is back in 2021, and we can’t wait to be reunited with our intrepid adventurers! Have you got what it takes?
We’re climbing three of the UK’s most glorious mountain peaks, all in one year. That’s England, Scotland and Wales -but not all at once. 3PC has been spread out over the year to give you time to rest, recuperate and retrain for the next climb. In fact, you can choose to do all three, or any one depending on your availability.
About Scafell Pike
Located in a commanding position in the Central Lakeland Fells, Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England, at 978 metres, and the shortest mountain of the 3 peaks challenge. There are two routes available for the climb either Seathwaite or Wasdale Head. The Wasdale Head route is six miles long, up and down and includes 989 metres of ascent. The route we will take is to be agreed with the trek guides, depending on the weather on the day of the challenge.
How much do I need to raise?
There is a £150 minimum fundraising amount for each trek. The cost of signing up for a trek is £14.99 (or £29.99 to sign up for all 3 Peaks -saving you £14.98) This will cover event management expenses such as the fees of trek guides, light refreshments for the trek, and first aid. The amount that you raise will go directly to IKCA which will help provide cancer treatment for cancer patients at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (SKMCH) in Lahore and Peshawar.
To make fundraising easier, we recommend setting up a JustGiving page. It’s quick, easy and saves you having to collect wads of cash. Once you’ve got one, all you’ll need to do is forward your JustGiving page link to friends and contacts, and they can donate online, direct to IKCA. You can also share updates and pictures on JustGiving so everyone who sponsors you can keep track of your progress.
Places on our annual 3PC challenges sell out fast, and the demand is particularly high now, after a year-long lockdown. If you’re interested in taking part on the 30th of May 2021, to book your place now and find out more, contact us directly at our Bradford office.
Please note that the minimum age limit for IKCA mountain treks is 10 (ten) years. Though we love to have children at our challenges, we are sorry to say we cannot accept children under the age of 10 for the 3PC Challenge.
