Challenge Cancer Through Adventure is a Peak District based charity run entirely by volunteers. We help people who are based in our region who are living with cancer or a life threatening illness to change their outlook, rebuild confidence and regain control of their lives by undertaking an outdoor adventure challenge.
Challenge Cancer Through Adventure provides support, encouragement, advice and funding to help imagine, plan, prepare for, get fit for, and undertake an outdoor adventure challenge.
Challenges range from local adventures around the Peak District (including rock climbing, abseiling, hang gliding, paragliding and balloon flights) to great adventures all around the world (including mountaineering and trekking in the Himalayas and the Andes, sailing in Scandinavia, sea kayaking in the Mediterranean, and cycle touring in Europe).

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
