University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity has partnered up with Discover Adventure to provide you with challenges of a lifetime. And what better accomplishment could there be than climbing the highest freestanding mountain in the world on the 413 October 2024?

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent at 5896m. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains, and you will see views of huge permanent glaciers flowing down from the summit. These beautiful ice formations are a breathtaking yet mesmerising reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally.

If this challenge piques your interest and you are ready to reach new heights of fitness, sign up now and support your local hospitals across Dorset. You can choose where your fundraising efforts go, whether it is to our hospitals in general or if there is a particular team, ward, or project that you are passionate about giving something back to – this could be the perfect way to do it.

But don’t take our word for it. Take a closer look at what this challenge has to offer in this short video.

Reach new heights for yourself and your local NHS by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for a hospital, ward or project of your choice.
