Join us for this Jurassic Coastal trek!

Take on this fantastic 3-day trek in the most geologically diverse coastline in the world and challenge yourself to hike 95 miles for children with neuroblastoma.

Stretching 95 miles between Old Harry Rocks in Dorset, to Orcombe Point in East Devon, the Jurassic Coast is England’s first Natural World Heritage Site. The exposed cliff sections allow you to look back through 185 million years of time; dinosaur remains have been found here, and it’s a fossil-hunter’s paradise.

The trek takes in spectacular scenery, from the renowned natural stone archway of Durdle Door to the beautiful circular Lulworth Cove, as you continually climb and descend the steep hills of the Jurassic Coast.

What’s included?

  • All food, accommodation and camping equipment
  • Transfers within trek
  • Discover Adventure leaders; cooks and drivers

How we help children              

Solving Kids’ Cancer is dedicated to supporting the lives of children who have been diagnosed with neuroblastoma. We provide emotional, practical and clinical support to families along their cancer journey; we advocate on behalf of children to improve care and treatment; and we use our expertise to identify, shape and fund clinical research to increase treatment options available to children now, and to discover less toxic and more effective treatments for children in the future.

As this trek is taking place in September, by taking part in this event you will be joining our Golden Hero’s making a difference to the lives of children with neuroblastoma by raising awareness during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM). Find out more about CCAM here.

If you already have a place in the event but still want to fundraise for us, we’d love to have you on our team. You’ll still get all the benefits but without a minimum fundraising target. Just register your own place here or let Emma know on the contact details below.
