Child Bereavement UK's Alpine Challenge
Why we need your help
Alpine Challenge: Three Countries, Three Peaks, Three Days
9th-13th October 2019
To mark Child Bereavement UK’s 25th year a team of dedicated supporters of Child Bereavement UK will be taking on the incredible Alpine Challenge! This event is a unique challenge hiking 3 peaks in 3 countries (France, Italy and Switzerland) in 3 days reaching altitudes over twice as high as Ben Nevis.
On each day of our challenge we will aim to summit a different peak in a new country, including; Testa Della Tronche, Italy (2,581m), Bel Oiseau, Switzerland (2,628m) and Aiguilette de Posettes, France (2,201m).
To celebrate the last 25 years Child Bereavement UK, we are aiming to raise funds for the charity to help them continue supporting families and educating professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
Please share your support and follow our team #cbuk25alpine.
Thank you so much for supporting our team in taking on this challenge!
Why we are supporting Child Bereavement UK
This year marks 25 years of Child Bereavement UK’s supporting families and educating professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
• Every 22 minutes, a parent dies leaving dependent children. Around 111 children are bereaved of a parent every day.
• Around 28 babies, children and young people under the age of 25 die each day in the UK – over 10,000 each year.
Child Bereavement UK’s vision is for all families to have the support they need to rebuild their lives, when a child grieves or when a child dies, and we want to help them to achieve this through our team Alpine Challenge.
