Do you still have questions? You’re not alone.

In case you’re wondering…

Can I do this trek if I have MS?

Yes! As long as you get clearance from your healthcare team. We want to make sure you’re fit enough to enjoy the trip.

This adventure is ranked 3/5, and while no extensive trekking experience is required before registering, our adventures are specifically designed for people who are relatively fit and willing to train.

How am I going to raise $3,500? It’s so much!

We’ll be here to support you the whole time!

It may be daunting to raise that much money if you’ve never done it before, but we’ll help you plan your fundraising, give you ideas, and set you up for success.

What’s the accommodation like?

There won’t be a tent in sight! You’ll be staying in 3-star hotels the whole way.
