This is our simplest challenge yet so there really is no excuse to not take part. It's simple, just run a mile on the road, football field or on a treadmill at the gym or at home, make a £1 donation and challenge three of your friends via Facebook or Twitter to do the same. You can even photograph or film it, share it, and then sit back and watch the fun and nomination process take over.
Our short term goal is to rebuild two new schools, funds raised will be used to buy building supplies, tools, equipment, and hire local people so in turn help to rebuild Nepali people’s livelihoods and start to rebuild communities in these remote areas. With just £290 we can rebuild a food or animal shelter, with £510 we can rebuild a family home, with around £2000 we can rebuild a school, and a further £700 will pay the wages of a rural teacher for a whole year.
The Climb Share Donate Challenge is monumental in size but simple to achieve with a little help from everyone. Everest is 8848 metres high, our challenge is to complete 8848 sponsored climbs. Join us and raise money to make a difference in Nepal. Your climb can be anything, anytime, anywhere, from a stair master at your local gym, a peak, a mountain, or a climbing wall, if you can climb it then you can join the challenge.
The 8848 Fund is a non-profit organisation, co-founded by Andrew Horton and Sarah-Jane Taylor. The Fund is dedicated to giving long term relief, aid and rebuilding to remote communities in the districts of both Rasuwa and Dolokha including the villages of Thuman, Tingure, Jiri, Danda Kharka and many more. After the massive devastation and destruction caused by the two earthquakes in Nepal, the pair knew they had to do something to help their friends and those in need, to make a difference no matter the scale. With this and some very ambitious aims, the 8848 fund was founded.
On the 25th April 2015 a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal causing indescribable damage, then again on the 12th May 2015 the unthinkable happened a second quake with a magnitude of 7.3 shook the core of Nepal this amplified further the damage, destruction and devastation on the Nepali way of life. Unfortunately this beautiful and diverse country, its communities, culture and its people have been had their futures possibly changed forever. This natural disaster has seriously affected the Nepali livelihoods across the country, in some cases displacing entire villages.
