Fees and Fundraising

When booking with Global Adventure Challenges there are two funding options available – Self Funded or Minimum Sponsorship:

Registration fee £125 + full cost of trip £895

Book and pay the registration fee to secure your place. You will then cover the remaining challenge fees yourself, there is no cost to GWAAC. Set your own fundraising target and raise as much as you can for GWAAC!


Minimum Sponsorship:

Registration fee £125 + fundraising target £1790

Book and pay the registration fee to secure your place. Pledge to raise the set minimum amount (£1790). GWAAC will cover the remaining costs of the challenge, knowing that your fundraising will bring in significantly more money than we are spending.
