Snowdon Challenge Climb

Climb Snowdon your way, in person or virtually, on Saturday 11th September 2021 and help us to hit our £25,000 challenge target so we can keep supporting those who need it most. Read on to find out more and register for the event.

Register and climb Snowdon your way!

Climb Snowdon, Wales’ highest mountain, on Saturday 11th September 2021 by joining us in person or virtually by climbing your stairs 350 times.  Raise sponsorship for Dravet Syndrome UK and help us with the mountain we've got to climb, after the impact of coronavirus.

Join us in person and we’ll send you a fundraising pack with all the information you need to know.  Starting at 09:30am and taking 6 hours you’ll be supported by our Team Leader and Trustee, Kelvin Hughes, along with plenty of encouragement from the wider DSUK Team.  

Join us virtually and we’ll be with you online with words of encouragement and sharing updates of your awesome challenge. The height of Snowdon is equivalent to 4,610 steps or 350 stairs climbs for the average staircase. If you don’t have stairs, a stepper will work just as well. Alternatively, tackle the 9 miles/14.5km of the Llanberis Path in your local parks.

You can take on the challenge in one go or in smaller sections across the month of September. It's your challenge, your way!

Whichever option you choose you’ll be achieving something incredible, which you can look back on and be proud of. You will also be raising funds to help those living with this devastating neurological condition and helping to ensure Dravet Syndrome UK can continue providing much needed support.

Sign up for free by completing the Eventbrite registration form below. Once you've signed up, set up a fundraising page (details below) and share it on social media so people can sponsor you. And of course, start training! Every pound raised will help people living with Dravet Syndrome through support, education and research funded by Dravet Syndrome UK.
