The Challenge

The Emergency Service Challenge is set for 19th to 29th September 2024 and has set its sights on conquering Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the world’s most iconic and challenging peaks. The trek up this majestic mountain is not just a physical test but a symbol
of resilience, teamwork, and the determination to overcome obstacles—qualities that resonate deeply with the emergency service community.

Why Kilimanjaro?

Mount Kilimanjaro, with its towering presence, represents a formidable challenge that mirrors the daily hurdles faced by emergency service workers. This climb serves as a powerful  metaphor for the mental health struggles that many within the emergency services may encounter. By conquering Kilimanjaro, participants not only push their physical limits
but also advocate for the mental well-being of their colleagues and peers.

Supporting Call4Backup:

The heart of this incredible endeavor lies in supporting Call4Backup, a charity committed to providing mental health support for police service personnel. The funds raised through this challenge will contribute directly to Call4Backup’s programs, which offer counseling, training, and resources to those in the police services dealing with mental health issues.
