Sahara Desert Challenge in aid of 40tude
After last year's epic climb to the summit ridge of Mount Toubkal, this winter's challenge is to trek 100km through the Sahara desert, with not a hotel or shower in sight! This could be pretty uncomfortable & smelly, though I am more worried about the lack of WiFi/4G and the risk of meeting the odd snake or scorpion...
40tude's 2019 Sahara Desert Challenge
Congratulations to our two teams of intrepid supporters who in January 2019 successfully completed 40tude's second Adventure Challenge: trekking a total of 100km across the Sahara Desert in just five days.
During these back-to-back expeditions our teams experienced the extremes of the Sahara's day and night temperatures and slept out under canvas - not to mention coping with mountains of sand each day. In so doing they have raised vital awareness and funds to help cure colon cancer.
Colon cancer is the UK's second most common cancer but it is one of the easiest to treat if it is detected early, through screening. We recommend that you are screened regularly for colon cancer from your mid-40s.
Since it was founded in 2011, 40tude has raised more than £1 million to support bespoke, pioneering research into the early diagnosis and treatment of colon cancer. We're working to raise awareness also, as heightened awareness of colon cancer is essential, particularly for anyone over 45. Any abdominal symptoms, change in bowel habit or blood in your stool should be discussed immediately with your doctor whatever your age.
