When it comes to adventures and exploring, overseas challenges are a great way to raise funds for Cure Parkinson’s.

Hot or cold, bustling or tranquil, there’s a challenge for everyone. Don’t miss your chance to explore the world and take on the challenge of a lifetime whilst supporting our mission to find a cure for Parkinson’s. 

We work closely with Discover Adventure, a leading tour operator for charity fundraising challenges, to offer some amazing international treks.

Costs and Fundraising

When you join a Discover Adventure challenge, there are three different payment options available to offer you both choice and flexibility. We’ve put together a handy guide which explains the options; however don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. 

Option 1 – Fundraising
  • A registration fee is applicable to all payment options and is non-refundable.
  • You commit to raise the full fundraising target; this varies depending on the trip.
  • Cure Parkinson’s pays your trip costs, providing we have received 80% of your fundraising target eight weeks prior to departure.
  • All airline taxes are included.
Option 2 – Part payment
  • A registration fee is applicable to all payment options and is non-refundable.
  • You contribute a set percentage of the trip costs, with the remainder paid by Cure Parkinson’s providing we have received 80% of your fundraising target eight weeks prior to departure. The target is lower than the Fundraising option due to your contribution.
  • All airline taxes are included.
Option 3 – Full payment
  • A registration fee is applicable to all payment options and is non-refundable.
  • You pay the full trip costs directly to Discover Adventure.
  • You have no fundraising target, just raise as much as you can. 100% of donations will come directly to Cure Parkinson’s.
  • Airline taxes are paid at the same time and in addition to the trip cost (capped at £250)

Climbing Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain at 3,776 metres, has to have been the most difficult task I have ever undertaken. If it shows even one person that a Parkinson’s diagnosis doesn’t mean the end of everything, it’s been worth it.
