The Push 2024

Each year, we seek teams who are keen to take on the mountain and raise funds for our life-changing services. Whether you use a wheelchair or can walk, this is the challenge for you!

The Push returned for another year on 1 July 2023, taking place on the tallest mountain in Wales, Yr Wyddfa (formerly known as Snowdon). Congratulations and thank you to everyone who took part.

This challenge is an amazing experience that brings together people from all walks of life to work as a team and reach one of the highest points in the British Isles, all whilst raising funds for people affected by spinal cord injury.

Our challenge events are open to anyone who wants to take one on– whether they have a spinal cord injury or not. The Push is suitable for all levels of ability. We encourage applications from anyone who wants to help raise funds for our life-changing services.

We usually have teams of 10 to 16, including one member who uses a wheelchair, you all work together to reach the top of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) and back down again, covering approximately eight miles of steep, mixed surfaced terrain. If you are not a wheelchair user and would prefer to tackle the challenge in a different way e.g. walking (with or without aids) please contact our events team to ensure we can meet and understand your needs and help to complete the challenge.

“Oh my goodness, how do I effectively express my gratitude for the opportunity to share this experience with such wonderful, selfless people. It proved such a huge challenge but each member of the team stepped up and gave it their all. Each time I close my eyes I see that sea of happy, exhausted, supportive and jubilant faces. I’ll always hold onto and treasure that memory”.
