FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Take on the challenge of cycling from the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas.

We answer your questions

When does the trip take place?

7-15 October 2017

What do I have to do to take part?

Complete the online registration form at and pay the Registration Fee £399. That fee goes directly our partner organiser, Global Adventure Challenges, upon registration and is non-refundable. 

You will then need to raise a minimum sponsorship of £3,490. This sum includes the full price of your return trip.

You will need to be able to pay Rowcroft the full amount of your minimum sponsorship 11 weeks prior to your departure. This means you will need to have secured sufficient sponsorship by 21 July 2017. This is because Rowcroft must pay Global Adventure Challenges the cost of your trip in good time before you leave. The actual cost of your trip is £1,745 which will be transferred to Global Adventure Challenges to procure flights, accommodation, guides etc; the remainder of your sponsorship then goes straight to benefit Rowcroft.

How does Rowcroft benefit?

At least £1,745 of the £3,490 minimum sponsorship will be treated as a donation to Rowcroft Hospice. If you raise over £3,490 the entire surplus will benefit the charity. The net sum of £1,745 is of enormous benefit to those with progressive, life-limiting illness in the care of the hospice and contributes to the annual cost of delivering hospice services which is £9 million.

What if I can’t raise the minimum sponsorship?

We will provide you with a fundraising pack full of ideas on how to reach your target. You will also have the support of our Community Fundraising team to answer any queries along the way. However, if you do not manage to raise £3,490 eleven weeks  prior to departure you will have the choice of making up the shortfall yourself or transferring to a later challenge, so giving yourself longer to fundraise.

Where can I get more information?

Our community fundraising team is here to help. We can provide you with sponsorship forms, T-shirts and other branded goods to promote the fact you are raising funds in aid of our charity. Do call us on 01803 210835 or email Hayley at hayley.norrish@rowcroft-hospice.co.uk. Our partner, Global Adventure Challenges, is open to take calls and queries on the logistics of the trip itself and you can reach them on 01722 718444 or email dan@globaladventurechallenges.com.
