Climb the stairs in your home enough times to scale the height of a famous mountain! Step up to the challenge and raise funds for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.

  • Sign up for free

  • Choose your mountain to climb

  • Measure the height of your stairs (to work out how many times you’ll have to climb them!)

  • Set up a JustGiving page (details below) and share it on social media so people can sponsor you.

  • Start climbing!

You don’t have to do your climbing all in one go, you can spread it over a week or the whole month. You could even take it on as a team.

However you choose to complete your challenge, every time you climb those stairs, you’ll be getting closer to the top of the mountain and closer to your fundraising target!

Climbing a Mountain in March is an amazing way to support your heart unit by achieving something special without having to leave your front door. Set a target that’s right for you, and choose which mountain you want to conquer…
