If you are passionate about a cause then a charity trek is an activity that you can do to show your support. You may have seen the celebrities who take on the Kilimanjaro but do you know that charity challenges take place across the Camino de Santiago each year.
What is a Charity Challenge?
A Charity Challenge is an activity that you take part in to fundraise for a cause that is close to your heart. Organising a challenge like this may seem daunting but once you have a worthy cause in mind it is simply a matter of deciding the right Camino route to choose. When you decide to do a charity challenge you are giving back to a community. While you cannot resolve all of the issues around you, you can help to fundraise and promote the causes that you are passionate about.
Your main goal for a charity challenge is to raise much needed funds for your preferred charity and engage in an activity that pushes you mentally as well as physically.
For many people, walking the Camino de Santiago is a challenge worth taking. Walking through many regions for several days at a time you will encounter fellow pilgrims, use your determination to keep going and create awareness for your charity.
Once you’ve raised the required amount of money, your main objective is to complete the challenge.
WALKING THE CAMINO FOR CHARITY
A charity trek is the perfect way to give back to a community you care about. Every year we team up with charities from around the world to help them get out on the Camino trails and fundraise for their worthy causes.
One benefit of such a trip is is could motivate you to start a fitness plan. To embark on a long distance walk will need to give yourself time to get in shape and prepare for your journey so it is a great way to get fit and healthy.
In addition to the charity benefits there are many personal reasons why people choose to do a charity trek. You will feel fitter, meet new people, be in a better mood and make a difference by showing your support the community. There is a great sense of fulfillment and selflessness that comes from partnering with a charity or supporting a cause.
From group charity treks to solo charity challenges, the many Camino routes and the varied terrains are suitable to a wide range of activities.
We will help you to prepare with our fitness ebook including a 6 month fitness guide for your trip. Our team will explain the items you need to bring along the way and advise you on the terrain to be expected on your chosen Camino route.
