Rio 3 Peaks Challenge – Sign up now!

Posted on the 25th July 2013

Join Street Child World Cup for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, discount climbing the three peaks of Rio de Janeiro within 24 hours, decease finishing in front of the iconic Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue at the summit of Corcovado, overlooking the wonderful city. As far as we’re aware, this is the first time anyone has offered this opportunity!

Departing on 17 November 2013, and returning on 26 November, this nine-day trip includes:

  1. A guided trek over the Three Peaks of Rio (Corcovado, Pedra da Gávea and Dois Irmãos) with iconic finish line at Christ the Redeemer. The treks will be hosted by members of the SCWC Local Advisory Group in Rio and in addition to 15 participants from the UK we will be joined by local people who are actively involved in delivering all aspects of the SCWC. This includes local sponsors, event managers, and the team from Rio representing Brazil.
  2. An opportunity to get to know the project that is sending the girls’ team to the Street Child World Cup’s work at Favela Street in the Complexo do Alemão, a group of Favelas in northern Rio.
  3. A visit to a top football match at the Maracana Stadium, where the 2014 FIFA World Cup final will be played.
  4. A tour of Rio and visits to the world-famous Ipanema and Copacabana beaches; in addition participants will be able to book other excursions, for example experience carnival-making first-hand at the Sambadrome, or get a cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain.

Places on this unique challenge are limited to 20 people, so please book early to avoid disappointment! We are asking you to pay a deposit of £200 to secure a place, then fundraise a minimum of £2,500. £700 of the £2,500 will go directly towards the work of Street Child World Cup.
