CORONAVIRUS AND YOUR CHALLENGE - WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED

 

We offer the full assurance that everyone who registers for one of our challenges will be able to defer to the following year for any reason and with no charge as long as you request this before your final fundraising deadline. 

 

It is our aim to ensure that everyone who registers for these challenges can do so with confidence that there are measures in place to enable you to realise your ambitions in spite of these unprecedented times. You can read more here.

TRIP COSTS

As we are a not for profit run by, and for, the charity Dig Deep, we don't pay the profits of UK middlemen and therefore our trips are the most affordable of any comparable challenge.

 

Your fundraising is split 50:50 between a charitable donation to Dig Deep, to help bring clean water to Kenya's poorest residents, and all your in-country costs associated with your challenge. It is completely your decision whether you wish to fundraise the whole amount, fundraise some and pay the remainder yourself or simply self-fund the whole amount. 

Either way we provide comprehensive fundraising support to all of our fundraisers to ensure you reach your target one way or another. You can check out our online fundraising resources here.
