Support Shelterbox and Climb to Space.

Details

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We're working to change this. By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we're transforming despair into hope.

This event rests upon the idea of climbing into space as indicated by the Karman Line being some 100 km above sea level. A height commonly held to represent the boundary between Earth’s atmosphere and Outer Space.

Climbers are invited to come together to ‘Climb to Space’ as a shared fundraising challenge for Shelterbox disaster relief organisation. Challenge yourself to climb 3280 ft (approx 1 km) over the two week challenge period.
Please note: It is not necessary to be able to climb in order to support this event. Donations can be made via the links below,
