Join Ronald McDonald House Charities on the adventure of a lifetime in China! Over 9 unforgettable days, you will trek the Great Wall and visit rural Chinese villages in the shadow of otherworldly mountains. Best of all, with every kilometer you cover you will be helping provide a home away from home for seriously ill children and their families.

Winding its way across the north of China, from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert, the Great Wall of China is one of humankind’s most impressive accomplishments. As part of this challenge, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture.

Over five days, you will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.

Swapping the majesty of the Great Wall for the hustle and bustle of a great city, you’ll explore the contrasting personality of Beijing. Immerse yourself in the ancient history of the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square. Best of all, with every step you take, you will be raising vital funds to help Ronald McDonald House Charities provide a home-away-from-home for regional families who have a sick child receiving hospital treatment in the city.

Imagine your child has been diagnosed with a serious or life-threatening illness and you’re confronted with having to leave your friends, family and support network behind.

That’s where Ronald McDonald House Charities steps in, providing free accommodation to families when they have to travel far from home to obtain specialist medical care for their sick child. While there is no place like home, Ronald McDonald House Charities strives to provide a safe and comfortable environment where the whole family can stay and thrive together for the duration of their child’s treatment.

By taking part in this incredible challenge, you will be doing your part to ensure that Ronald McDonald House Charities continues to deliver for sick children and their families when they need it most. Every dollar raised will help keep doors open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, providing shelter in the storm of families in need.
