Ten Tors Jubilee Challenge - CAN YOU HELP US?
Ten Tors Jubilee Challenge
CAN YOU HELP?
In May 2018, 6 of our young people with Down Syndrome, aged 14-19, under the guidance of JC Adventures Ltd, will be taking part in the Ten Tors Jubilee 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.
Just like the Ten Tors Challenge, our youngsters will be required to trek and navigate across northern Dartmoor to specified checkpoints.
How will this challenge benefit our young people?
The aim of this challenge is to enhance the self-confidence of our young people. To allow them to develop leadership skills, problem-solving, teamwork and hillwalking/camping skills in a wild country context. All the skills acquired will help our youngsters to work towards an independent future.
How can I help?
In order for our young people to participate, we are looking for corporate sponsorship. This is a fantastic opportunity for your business to support young people with Down Syndrome and make this achievement a reality. In return for your sponsorship, your corporate logo will appear on the team t-shirt, of which the young people will be photographed in. We will advertise your support on our website and in our charity in-house publications. This will include an article in our newsletter and any other national/local publications we may appear in. We will also promote your business through our social media outlets as well as distributing your information at our events.
We can guarantee that your sponsorship will be for this event only and that all proceeds raised from this event will go directly to the charity. However, should you wish to continue supporting us then we would be delighted?
How much is it going to cost us?
We are seeking a sponsorship of £3,000 for this event. This covers the cost of training, all the equipment required and the entry cost.
