Since its inception in 2014, Fabulous challenges have taken 327 inspirational trekkers to 6 iconic destinations, hiking over 270 miles to raise £1.2 million for charity. This year they are off to Petra, Jordan.
So, why should you join Team Fabulous in 2020?
From the 27th September – 4th October 2020, Team Fabulous are heading to the ancient, hidden ‘red-rose’ city of Petra, a UNESCO world heritage site. Named one of the new seven wonders of the world, Petra is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Some of you may recognise the iconic lost city from Indiana Jones and the last crusade! On this 8-day challenge you will trek along a breath-taking section of the Jordan Trail, experience floating in crystal clear waters of the iconic Dead Sea, explore the culture of Amman and enjoy the views of the promised land from Mount Nebo.
This year, Fabulous Challenges have teamed with Jo’s Trust, the UK’s leading Cervical Cancer charity. Nine women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every day and 220,000 are diagnosed with cell changes, often needing treatment. Jo’s Trust want to see cervical cancer become a disease of the past and are working hard to get to that day through campaigns and education programmes.
With the number of women attending smear tests at an all-time low, we are looking to raise the profile of this hugely important charity, and we need the help of all you wonderful trekkers!
Fabulous Challenges have historically been joined by a whole host of famous faces, including Vicky Pattison, Frankie Bridge, Olivia & Alex Bowen, Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Chloe Madeley and Mario Falcone (to name a few!)
By joining us on this challenge, you will trek alongside two celebrity team captains, to be announced at the group information session… watch this space!
From the first information session, training days, all the way through to your challenge and beyond, the bond you create with your team will last a lifetime!
