Every climber is asked to raise $5,000.00 USD to help support the projects funded by The Freedom Challenge. However, we encourage you to raise even more! A minimum of $2,500.00 USD is required to be raised in order to participate. For Mother daughter teams (daughters in the 6th - 12th grade) the fundraising goal is $3,000.00 for two and and additional $1,000.00 for each additional child. The minimum fundraising requirement for a mother daughter team is $3,000. Every single dollar is effective in bringing freedom and hope!
These funds must be raised by June 15, 2017. We are prepared to help you achieve this goal by providing you with all the tools and support you will need, but you must be prepared to work diligently to achieve it! In the event the participant's minimum is not achieved, the registration and gift amounts will be considered a non-refundable gift to the projects.
Machu Picchu participants do not have a fundraising requirement for this event since they are already committed to raising $10,000 for the projects. They will utilize this hike as their training hike.
