Grab one of the last few places on anniversary trek

26th April 2015

We’ve got just five places left on our 30th anniversary charity trek in the Patagonian Andes next year


If you’re interested in joining us sign up quickly to guarantee your place.

The five-day trek from Argentina to Chile, through some of the most breath-taking scenery in South America, takes place between 5 and 14 February 2016 

It starts in the Lake District area of Argentina, where snow-capped mountains fringe glacial lakes, before crossing into Chile and entering a world of lush rainforest, cascading waterfalls and bubbling hot springs.

We’ve teamed up with specialist challenge event organiser Classic Tours for the trek, and are the only charity offering this adventurous challenge next year.

Emily Millington, our events manager, said: “We only have a few places left now, so please get in touch soon if you’d like to join us and help us celebrate 30 years of achievement fighting meningitis – we’d love it if you can.”

Registration costs £350 and trekkers need to raise £3,950 in sponsorship. Alternatively trekkers can pay £2,137 for the costs of the trek and raise at least £1,813.

On hand to guide trekkers 

In return flights, accommodation, support vehicles, medical support and experienced guides are provided.

The Meningitis Now events team is on hand to guide trekkers through every step of this challenge. 

“From fundraising ideas to training tips we promise to take care of all the practical arrangements - leaving you free to concentrate on walking, enjoying the breath-taking scenery and completing the challenge,” Emily added.

Money raised from the trek helps fund preventative research, raise awareness and support those touched by the dreaded disease through our unique range of services.
