Kilimanjaro

 Climb Kilimanjaro for Julian House and Stand up to Homelessness

What if you could climb the tallest free-standing mountain in the world AND help support men and women suffering from homelessness?

From 7th-15th February 2020 a group of 12 individuals will be climbing the tallest free-standing mountain in the world to raise vital funds and awareness for Julian House and the men and women it supports. 

While the challenge will require determination, stamina and team work, it’s a challenge that will not only change your life but also the life of someone within our care.

Unless you’ve been homeless it’s hard to image what it’s like. But we can tell you what homelessness isn’t. It isn’t decreasing, it isn’t the result of one single problem and it doesn’t go away when you walk past it. At Julian House, our projects and services not only address the symptoms of homelessness but also the underlying reasons why men and women are forced on to the streets. We seek to find solutions to empower and help people build sustainable, independent lives. Whether that be through supporting people into their own accommodation, learning new skills, returning to college, volunteering or finding employment. All the money raised during this challenge will go towards helping a person build a safer, happier, more fulfilled life.

Top challenge highlights:

·       Accomplish one of the greatest challenges of all time by ascending the world’s highest freestanding mountain.

·       Camp under the stars while on expedition. 

·       Watch the sunrise as you reach the Crater’s Rim.

·       Explore some of the most varied landscapes on earth, from montane forests, to high altitude deserts.

·       Meet and be-friend people with a similar mind set.

·       Experience traditional Tanzanian culture and cuisine. 

How can I take part?

We ask for a registration fee of £400 to secure your place and a guarantee you can raise a minimum sponsorship target of £3,500. All travel, accommodation and most meals are included within this challenge cost.  The only items not covered are a Tanzania visa (£40), travel insurance, tips for guides, drinks and other items of a personal nature. 

While £3,500 may seem a daunting figure, we’ve created a special fundraising pack that gives you a step by step guide to help you raise the funds.
