Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
In May 2018 The Strolling Stevedores will take on their latest challenge, to trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We leave the UK on May 23rd before starting a 3 day acclimatisation in Cusco which stands at 3399mtrs. The trek then starts at km82 before crossing the highest part of the trek which is Dead woman's pass at a height of 4250mtrs. After a 3am start on our final day of the trek we will arrive at the Sun Gate where we get our first views of Machu Picchu. After a short tour of Machu Picchu we will then climb Huayna Picchu mountain which overlooks the Lost city of Machu Picchu. We will then descend from the "lost city" to Aguas Calientes to recover before returning to Cusco.
Our trip is totally self funded and all of the money raised will go directly to St Elizabeth Hospice. Nothing is taken for any of our costs, everything is paid for by ourselves. Sponsor forms are also available if you would like to sponsor us that way. Our target fundraising amount is the distance from Felixstowe (our starting point) to Machu Picchu.
As always thanks to everyone for your continued support of The Strolling Stevedores, and most importantly for helping St Elizabeth Hospice to keep doing the incredible work they do.
