How to fund your challenge

This page provides you details of the costs of your challenge.

The costs below are per person.

At the time of booking, you will be required to pay a non-refundable registration fee of C$650.00.

Ten weeks before departure you will need to settle the remaining C$1750.00 contribution towards the challenge cost.

You will also need to raise a minimum amount of C$5,500.00 to support Cystic Fibrosis Canada as your nominated charity.

  • At least 80% of the minimum fundraising dollars required (C$4,400.00) must be sent to the charity 12 weeks before the challenge, by August 18, 2024.
