The Canadian Rockies are justifiably world-famous for their magnificent scenery: the combination of impressive, jagged mountains, bright turquoise glacial lakes and dark green forest is hard to resist.
Some steep hills and long days on rugged trails make for a demanding adventure, but with a relatively low tree-line allowing us to savour the views, and no high altitudes to worry about, this natural mountain wilderness is a trekker’s paradise.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer it threatens everything, for them and their family.
At a time when they should be busy being children, enjoying their rollercoaster teenage years or finding their feet at uni, life becomes full of fear. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, of overwhelming money worries, mental health stretched to breaking point, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.
At Young Lives vs Cancer, we get that. We are the charity that helps children and young people and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them. But every day 12 more children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer. We’ll face it all together – but we can’t do it without you.
