Everest Challenge 2017

The Everest Challenge 2017 ...

www.entrycentral.com/everestFollowing the success of Everest Challenge 2015 & 2016, we invite schools, clubs, groups and individuals, of all ages and abilities, to join us in the Everest Challenge 2017. 

The Everest Challenge is a simple concept: Mount Everest is 8,848 metres high and the challenge is to row that distance, individually or as a team, on a Concept 2 indoor rowing machine.

In 2015, in response to the devastating earthquakes that hit Nepal, 80 rowers helped the Everest Challenge raise over £7,000 towards a total of £43,000 we raised for earthquake relief at the 10 schools we support. With those repairs and rebuilding projects now either completed or well under way, our thoughts turn to improving the facilities at the schools.

In 2016, with the earthquake repairs largely completed, we raised over £2,000 towards establishing a well stocked library in each of the schools. 

In 2017, we are hoping to raise funds towards establishing a Learning Resource Centre in Tansen, the main town in Palpa distric, where 9 of our 10 supported schools are located. Establishing the Learning Resource Centre is a multi-year project that will see us establish teacher training, ICT training, together with children's and adult libraries, under a single roof.
