"There Is No Such Thing As Insurmountable Odds."
LATEST - 30/06/2010 : We invite all competitors to download The 2010 Chara Challenge Entry Pack
which contains everything you`ll need including the confirmed route, sponsorship forms, etc.
The Chara Challenge is raising money for the charities listed below.
We have selected these charities because they have a proven record of providing care for wounded servicemen and women and their dependants.
All of the money raised by the Chara Challenge will go directly to our nominated charities. Everyone working at the Chara Challenge is a volunteer and we do not pay salaries. The cost of running the event has been met from the generous contributions of our sponsors and from event entry fees.
Pending decisions by the Chara Challenge Committee, further charities may be made added to this list.
