The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000K, it zig-zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys. Take on the Great Wall for young lives against cancer.
This is a fantastic trek along this magnificent structure, over watchtowers and mountains, through historic battlements and to the top of the ‘Heavenly Ladder’ at Mutianyu.
You will place your own brick in a section that is currently being restored, ensuring your imprint is left on the wall for all time – a very special privilege, unique to Global Adventure Challenges.
Conquer the twists, turns, steps and slopes of this formidable fortification.

Cancer is shocking, overwhelming, isolating… and completely unfair. Especially when you’re young. It takes over your life. Treatment is gruelling and your ambitions and dreams suddenly seem very far away.
We get that. That’s why Young Lives vs Cancer fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives. We provide grants and free accommodation close to hospital to help with spiralling costs. Our care teams are on hand to help families with everything from getting benefits to treatment closer to home. And we lobby the government to make sure they get the support they’re entitled to. We’re here to make sure young cancer patients can focus on getting their lives back on track.
