What is the challenge?

A country of contrasts that will impact on your senses, don’t miss this opportunity to see the real China! Your trekking challenge is a fantastic five day trek along the magnificent structure of the Great Wall, over watchtowers and mountains, through historic battlements and to the top of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’ at Mutianyu. 

You will place your own brick in a section that is currently being restored, ensuring your imprint is left on the Wall for all time – a very special privilege. There will be a free day at the end of the challenge to spend exploring Beijing and the wonderful attractions it has to offer.

How does the money you raise support us?

We are celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2017 and all funds raised will be going towards our Sussex Giving for Sussex Children campaign, enabling us to continue to support children and their families across the county.
