Everest Challenge 2020
Following the success of Everest Challenge over the last 5 years, we invite schools, clubs, groups and individuals, of all ages and abilities, to join us in the Everest Challenge 2020.
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.
Since 2015, the Everest Challenge has raised over £17,000, initially towards rebuilding 5 schools following the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. In 2016 & 2017 we used funds raised to repair less badly hit schools and to install well-stocked libraries at all 10 supported schools. In 2018 we raised funds towards establishing a Learning Resource Centre in Tansen, to enable us to deliver teacher training, IT training and children's and adult libraries, under a single roof. In 2019 we raised funds to rebuild toilet facilities at one of our supported schools.
In 2020, and having had the toilet rebuild project delayed by the effects of Coronavirus in Nepal, we are looking to raise further funds to complete toilet refurbishment at another very needy school.
