CREATE YOUR OWN adventure!

We are looking for likeminded adventurers, like you, to take on a personal challenge or adventure of your own to support the work of Hope and Homes for Children. Whether it is a wild sleep out with your friends and family, or an extreme cycle overseas, we are here to help make it happen.

Looking for inspiration? Why not try one of these…

 

#1 Chase the Horizon – Look out your window, pick a spot and get there. No matter what. The trickier the route the greater the adventure!

#2 Wild Camp – Beds are overrated! Get a group together, pack your bivvy bags and have a night under the stars.

#3 Catch the Worm – Round up some of your colleagues, set out early and take a hike up a hill. Reach your destination in time for the sunrise.

#4 Reclaim the Night – No time for adventure? Think again. Plan a night time adventure!

#5 Walk 500 miles – Ok, so maybe not literally. But you could plan a great walking route and set out to complete the journey in a record time. Alternatively, see how far you can go and get sponsored for the miles that you cover.

#6 Penniless – How many days/how many miles can you go without spending any money?

#7 The Daily Commute – Bored of the monotonous journey into the office? Well, change it! Find a unique way to travel in and get your friends and colleagues to sponsor your efforts – the more adventurous you are the better!

#8 Step Outside Your Comfort Zone – What do you fear? What have you never done? Why not stretch those adventure muscles and try something new and exciting.

#9 A Family Adventure – Get everyone involved. You are never too young/old for an adventure.

#10 Take on the Extreme – Why not push your limits and take on something big! A cycle across Europe, an ocean journey across the pond, an arctic expedition or even an extreme mountain summit!
