We want to do this epic challenge to raise lots of money for Breast Cancer Now. 
We are funding this trip ourselves so all monies raised will go straight to the Charity.
Breast Cancer is close to both our hearts and we couldn't think of a better way to help raise as much money as we can by taking on this monumental Trek.

Event details

Everest Base Camp, Nepal.. It's quite high.

The Trek to Everest Base Camp will take 18 days from leaving London to arriving back. The challenge is graded as extreme due to the rough terrain, high altitude and basic facilities.
We'll be trekking fro 12 days consecutively, without access to showers or proper washing facilities and going to altitudes of up to almost 6000m. The temperatures at night will reach well below zero degrees. We will camp each night in locations with very basic facilities.
