Muscular Dystrophy Canada has recently partnered with Charity Challenge, the world’s leading fundraising challenge operator, as they launch a new series of their most popular adventure challenges around the world for Canadians to participate in while raising money for Canadian charities. Visit new countries, experience different cultures, and improve your fitness while raising funds for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. There are over 100 challenges to choose from including trekking the Great Wall of China, Inca Trail, Everest base camp, or the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
These challenges offer the chance to meet new people, experience new cultures and see wonderful landscapes throughout the world. The challenges also aim to create an understanding of local issues and provide sensitive interaction with the local communities. Participants can be women and men, young and old. Motives come in all different forms, but the one thing everyone has in common is the desire to help a worthwhile cause while breaking the mold of everyday routine.
These challenges are more than just a matter of physical exertion. The goal ahead is as much about fundraising as getting fit and pushing yourself to new limits. By participating in a charity challenge expedition, you are pledging to raise as much sponsorship as possible for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
Many people find this aspect of the challenge daunting, but by being original and planning ahead, the fundraising can be as rewarding and enjoyable as the expedition itself. Muscular Dystrophy Canada will give you a head start after you register by providing you with ideas and advice, and online and offline sponsorship forms. Most of all we will make sure that you have fun collecting your sponsorship. It doesn’t have to be a struggle.
