The Route

Charity Information

About The Prince’s Trust

The Prince’s Trust is the UK’s leading youth charity which provides practical and financial support to disadvantaged young people, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. We work with thousands of 13 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. Our wide range of programmes are designed to encourage and empower young people to turn their lives around.

How to take part for Charity

To do this challenge for a charity there is a non-refundable registration fee, payable to Maximum Adventure at the time of booking.  You can then choose between the two different options below.

Self-Funding

Pay a registration fee at the time of booking then the balance due 10 weeks before departure.  With the self-funding option, you personally cover the full cost of the challenge.  This option means that there is no minimum sponsorship target due, but we encourage you to raise as much money as you can for the charity.

Minimum Sponsorship Pledge

Pay a registration fee at the time of booking and confirm with your charity their minimum fundraising requirements for the balance.  This will typically be double the cost of the adventure, less the registration fee.  With the minimum sponsorship pledge option, you must submit 80% of your fundraising target to the charity 10 weeks before the departure date.
