MONT BLANC 2017 CHALLENGE

The Mont Blanc 2017 Challenge Team is made up of Duke of Edinburgh’s Award holders and individuals with no prior experience of Alpine Mountaineering.  With the aim of reaching the summit of the highest mountain in Western Europe, the team will demonstrate what can be achieved when you put your mind to something.

The aim of the Mont Blanc 2017 Challenge is to raise awareness and funds for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award; a cause that’s close to the hearts of each member of the team. The climb is designed to inspire the next generation of young participants to put their new-found skills to the test by continuing to seek out adventure beyond completion of the Award.

Why DofE?

Like most charities, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award relies on charitable funds to continue its exceptional work.  Donations go directly towards the positive development of hundreds of thousands of young people, from all walks of life, as well as supporting the thousands of leaders and volunteers who passionately give up their time on a daily basis.  The impact of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award on the lives of young people is truly remarkable and the whole team feel passionately about the life enhancing benefits that adventure brings, having gone through the Award themselves.  Quite simply, there is no better organisation in the world that helps more young people realise their full potential through adventure than the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.  The facts speak for themselves…………
