Let’s see how high we can go together against brain tumours.

If you’ve been chomping at the bit to put your fitness to the test and rise to a challenge during lockdown, then why not take part in Conquer the Climb. This is your chance to scale great heights this summer – reaching the summit of Snowdon, the Matterhorn or Everest, either inside on your stairs or outside up a local hill.

All we ask is that you pledge to raise £100 to help us climb closer to a cure and to support those living with a brain tumour. And if you can raise more – we’d really appreciate it!

Starting on Saturday 20 June – the longest day of the year – you can take advantage of those precious extra daylight hours when you do this eight-week challenge, which can be as easy or tough as you like. When you’ve reached your pinnacle of success, we’ll send you your commemorative medal to mark your achievement!
