Now YOUR supporters can trek, bike and climb throughout the world in aid of your cause!

Charity Challenge, the World's leading fundraising challenge operator is now working directly with Canadian charities, offering their supporters the chance to join one of more than 50 adventure challenges around the world, raising thousands of dollars for their cause at the same time.

For more than 14 years we have supported many thousands of people to undertake an incredible adventure, and in the process have helped to raise in excess of $55,000,000.00  for over 1500 UK, Irish and Canadian registered charities.  We organise over 100 expeditions each year, have run more international challenges, and have raised funds for more charities than any other company worldwide!

Our portfolio includes treks, bike rides, mountain climbs, skiing and sledge hauling in more than 25 countries worldwide. From the North Pole to South Pole, with jungles, mountains and deserts in between, we take groups of individuals outside of their comfort zone and push them to their limits, all while raising funds for the charity of their choice.

Whether its climbing Kilimanjaro, trekking to Machu Picchu in Peru or along the Great Wall of China, we provide the full support from choosing a challenge, getting in shape, fundraising, preparation (visas and vaccinations and getting appropriately equipped), to operating the actual expedition.

If you want to know what a Charity Challenge is all about, click here to watch an inspirational video shot recently on our Avenue of Volcanoes Challenge.

You'll find a wealth of information within the pages of this site which we hope will enable you to get your supporters engaged with challenge events, and raising significant funds for your cause. It really couldn’t be easier!

We have the widest range of challenges in the market place, provide marketing materials, carry out all of the administration on your behalf, take on the legal liabilities, and of course operate the challenges professionally from start to finish. We even provide support to help your supporters with their fundraising and fitness training.

You and your supporters will have access to our secure members’ areas providing even more detailed relevant information.

Whether you're looking to promote our open challenges, ideas for an exclusive challenge, ways to engage your corporate supporters, or just wanting a better understanding of how the whole challenge process works, we're keen to be of assistance to you. Please have a browse through the site and if you have any questions or queries that are not addressed, we would love to hear from you.
