~Adaptable Accessible Adventure Challenge~
Over the summer we have the opportunity for people to set themselves an outdoor challange and fundraise to support our cause.
You create the challenge! No challenge is too big or too small
How to Participate:
Step 1 – Choose your team – You can take part individually or as a part of a team, virtually or in-person. People from anywhere in the world are encouraged to take part and support this campaign!

Once you have registered, check your email as you will have been sent a link to edit your form so you can personalize your challenge however you like!
Step 2 – Choose Your Challenge and edit your Zeffy form – Decide on the activity and distance, or destination! Walk, Wheel, Scooter, Swim, Paddle, Climb, Bike, Run. You choose what works best for you and your challenge!
* This can be limitless – Set goals that are challenging, achievable and matched to your abilities. This could be anything from walking or wheeling around your block to climbing three peaks in a single day – (You will have the ability to edit this when creating your fundraiser)
Here are some examples, but all kinds of active challenges are welcome! The main thing is that you choose something that is challenging for you, that you would feel proud to achieve
Examples: Swim the equivalent distance of the English Channel, wheel the equivalent distance of the height of Mount Everest (8.8km), log so many kilometers over the campaign period with your chosen form of travel, hike to reach a specific mountain peak or lake, use your bowhead/adaptive bike or other form of travel to reach any specific destination or distance goal!
