What we're about

We help children in need around the world by raising money from day hikes in UAE & Oman and from bucket-list international adventure challenges.

Our mission and vision is to empower people to change their lives and the lives of children in need around the world.

We run annual international adventure challenges where people can train with us; join a welcoming, inclusive and supportive community; and get involved in our charity work while taking on a bucket-list adventure, getting fit and maintaining health and well-being.

Our hiking guides are wilderness first aid certified, mountain leader trained and we love to empower people to go outdoors, get fit, have an adventure - and best part is, all funds generated go directly to helping children in need.
