The Myton Hospices
Few people are given the opportunity to walk along the lesser-seen parts of the Great Wall of China, but The Myton Hospices are giving people the chance to join a team of intrepid fundraisers to do just that!
Only a few sections of the Great Wall of China are still open to the public, but trekking 36km over five days will give you access to parts of the historic wall that not many people are lucky enough to experience!
We have organised this fantastic challenge through Global Adventure Challenges who will take you over watch towers and mountains, and through historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail – there are many sections of this challenge where you will feel the Great Wall is only for you and your fellow trekkers, with no-one else in sight.
And exclusive to operators Global Adventure Challenges, our participants will get to lend a hand repairing a section of the Wall which is currently being reconstructed. You will be able to lay a brick ‘in memory’, ensuring you and your loved one will have a place on one of the Seven Wonders of the World forever!
Following the five days of trekking you will have some free time to explore Beijing’s famous sites like the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square before celebrating your achievement – and resting your feet – at a farewell dinner.
Join Team Myton for an experience of a lifetime; as the Chinese saying goes ‘you have not lived if you have not been to the Great Wall!’
We are hoping to raise £42,000 from this extraordinary event, which would be enough to keep the Inpatient Unit at Warwick Myton Hospice running for seven days!
Everyone will pay a non-refundable registration fee of £299 when they sign up to the Great Wall of China trek, then we are giving participants two price options:
Minimum Sponsorship: You only pay your registration fee, but you must commit to raising £2,995 in sponsorship.
Self-Funded: You pay £1,624 on top of your registration fee to take part in the trek, but there is no minimum sponsorship - we just ask you raise as much as you can!
