Following the success of our previous entrants, Ups and Downs Southwest are once again able to offer places for the Ten Tors Jubilee Challenge 2020 and are looking to put forward a team of 6 young people with Down Syndrome who are up for a challenge. The Ten Tors Jubilee Challenge is a trekking expedition on northern Dartmoor designed specifically for young people with special needs, both physical and educational. Incorporated within the Ten Tors Event in 1977 as the Special Event, it was renamed the Jubilee Challenge in 1996. The Jubilee Challenge has developed into a popular event, with teams from learning disability establishments based in the seven Counties of the West Country participating. It is organised and run by the members of Exeter University Officer Training Corps (volunteer undergraduate officer cadets who are members of either Exeter or Plymouth Universities) on behalf of HQ SW, the sponsors of the Ten Tors Event. Together with the Ten Tors Challenge, it attracts considerable media and public attention. Numerous VIPs also attend and are willing volunteers to hand out medals after the Challenge is completed.
