Explore the Globe for Charity
Sometimes, a cycle at a national park, a coffee morning at your local cafe or a 10K run is just not enough of a challenge. Sometimes, you need to go further afield!

There are two ways of funding your challenge; minimum sponsorship or self-funding.
For payment option A – minimum sponsorship – You pay the non-refundable deposit (the first sum above) to Global Adventure Challenges. This is used to organise your trip including securing airline seats and relevant permits. You then commit to raising the minimum sponsorship (the second sum above) for Breathing Matters. You can set up a Justgiving Page from our home page (https://www.justgiving.com/breathingmatters) and 80% of the minimum sponsorship MUST be raised no later than ELEVEN WEEKS BEFORE DEPARTURE as this is when Breathing Matters will pay your challenge costs direct to Global Adventure Challenges. Failure to raise this money may mean non-participation and cancellation of your challenge so it is important to raise your funds early. The remaining 20% should be received no more than two weeks after your challenge finishes (we may ask for proof of offline pledges). We would be grateful if you could try and raise as much as you can over the minimum sponsorship target as every penny of this is what Breathing Matters will receive. The more you raise, the more research work we can do and the more your challenge will have been worthwhile.
For payment option B – self-funding – You pay the non-refundable deposit (the first sum above) to Global Adventure Challenges which is used to organise your trip including securing airline seats and relevant permits. Ten weeks before departure, Global Adventure Challenges will invoice you for the balance (the second sum above) and this should be paid within two weeks; eight weeks prior to your challenge. Although there is no minimum sponsorship target for this option, we would encourage you to raise as much as possible for Breathing Matters (via https://www.justgiving.com/breathingmatters). The more you raise, the more research work we can do and the more your challenge will have been worthwhile.
If all the above fills you with dread, why don’t you check out many more challenges including those closer to home in the UK on http://www.globaladventurechallenges.com/uk
