Take on this Scafell Pike sponsored walk and conquer the highest point in England! 

On a clear day, the view from the peak of Scafell Pike is one of the most breathtaking sights in England. Standing at 978m high, this is not an easy charity walk to conquer. There will be sweat, mud and quite possibly tears, but it's an amazing opportunity to join the fight for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis.  

For cross-infection risk management, if you have cystic fibrosis, please contact us before signing up to this event! The minimum age to take part in this event is 14  - anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult during their stay and trek.
