Snowdon Sunrise Challenge 2015
We’ve all climbed Snowdon time and time again, that’s why we’re switching things up a little by climbing the tallest peak in Wales-at NIGHT!
With qualified guides and the Orphans in Need Team by your side, you will climb Snowdon using just torches and moonlight to light your way. We will reach the summit by dawn to witness a beautiful Welsh sunrise, before descending to enjoy a well-earned breakfast!
Every penny you raise for this challenge will go towards providing orphan children with a shelter and accommodation, food and access to medical care and an education.
Come along and experience Mount Snowdon like you’ve never experienced it before!

Where and When...
15th August | Snowdonia, Wales
Minimum funds to raise: £200
Registration Fee: £40
Orphan children are by far the most vulnerable group in any society. The children that we work with are often found abandoned, forced to work as child labourers and vulnerable to all forms of horrific abuse.
Each pound that you raise in sponsorships for this challenge can provide a new life to a helpless orphan child. With £200 you can help Orphans in Need support the children under our care by ensuring our orphans are housed in a loving and caring environment, are given daily nutritional meals, and have access to medical and an education.
