Great Wall of China Trek 2017

Event Overview

We have teamed up with international challenge providers Discover Adventure to offer you this once in a lifetime opportunity to trek the full length of the Great Wall of China with fellow cat lovers, while also raising vital funds for Cats Protection.

Stretching 6,000km in a dotted line across China, the Great Wall was begun in the 5th Century BC. As it snakes across the mountains it conjures up a sense of history which is difficult to grasp until you have had the opportunity to experience it.

Our trek is very varied, as we pass through woodland and terraced farmland following the contours of the beautiful hills and mountains in remote areas north of Beijing. We follow old sections of the Great Wall, as well as restored sections with smooth flagstones and lots of steps! This challenge is physically demanding but offers fabulous scenery and a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.

There is a non-refundable, £299 registration fee payable to join the event; this is required in full on signing up to the challenge.

We then ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £2,950 by 1 July 2017. You are able to nominate a local branch or centre to support throughout your fundraising if you wish. While this may sound like a daunting amount, we have ensured you have plenty of time to raise the funds and also have put together a very robust pack of resources to help you. Coupled with this you will receive dedicated support and guidance from our Events team.

We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise lots of much needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens.
