The Snowdon Push
Sponsorship Target: Participants are required to raise £2,000 per team
While we have taken the decision to cancel the 2021 challenge, we are planning for 2022
The Snowdon Push is Back Up’s toughest, most exhilarating fundraising challenge.
We’re seeking 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! Check out our Essential Information Pack to learn more. If you’re interested, but unsure how you can get involved, do get in touch with our Events team on 020 8875 1805 or by email.
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 Snowdon 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 Mount 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”.
