Challenge Events

In a previous issue of Exchange we told you all about Maria White who climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for the Coronary Care, Diabetes and Cancer departments. Taking on such a challenge wasn’t easy, but it was a once in a lifetime experience for Maria who also raised over £7,000 for Derby Hospitals Charity.

Why not challenge yourself and have your very own experience of a lifetime while raising money for Derby Hospitals Charity? Global Adventure Challenges provide a variety of challenge events that go further afield or closer to home in the Derbyshire Peaks. There are many different challenges available and here are just a few to whet your appetite:
