How it works

By taking part in The Climb you can raise money for Tearfund’s life-saving work across the world. You can take to the stairs in your home or simply step on and off a box until you reach the top...

We recommend you climb the equivalent height of the Four Peaks, Kilimanjaro if you want more of a challenge, or Ben Nevis if you want to make it slightly easier. It’s up to you over how many days you choose to complete the challenge. Do the maths to match your fitness level. You could do The Climb over a month, a couple of weekends or in a day if you’re a seasoned climber

Here are a few suggestions:

Beginner - Ben Nevis

1500m

Ascents per day

28 days = 17 ascents

14 days = 35 ascents

7 days = 69 ascents

Moderate - Four Peaks

4000m

Ascents per day

28 days = 55 ascents

14 days = 110 ascents

7 days = 220 ascents

Experienced - Kilimanjaro

6000m

Ascents per day

28 days = 76 ascents

14 days = 152 ascents

7 days = 304 ascents

(An ascent is one climb of an average staircase, containing 15 steps)

Now is the time to help end poverty

Living in poverty is a hard mountain to climb. But your footsteps can transform lives.

Every step you take you will be giving hope to people living in poverty. A chance for them to break free from the cycle of despair and create a better future for their families.

Take to the stairs, get sponsored, and help end poverty. The money you make will help us to reach those most in need with the tools and training they need to lift themselves out of poverty – and stay there.

Make a difference today. Take on The Climb.
