Can you take on the Street Child United Rio 3 Peaks Challenge?

Posted on the 7th July 2014

What are you doing this autumn? If you’re bored of the same old challenges and you are looking for one you will never forget then join us in trekking the 3 mountain peaks of Rio de Janeiro finishing at the iconic Christ the Redeemer. Not only is this the challenge of a lifetime but your involvement will help support street children’s rights across the world.

SUMMIT PDG 6 The breathtaking view from Pedra da Gavea featuring both Dois Irmoaos and Corcovado peaks gazing over Rio de Janeiro.


The Rio 3 Peaks challenge has only ever been completed by one group of 20 intrepid (and very sweaty) trekkers. Join this elite group of adventurers by taking on the challenge yourself in November 2014. You’ll begin the day at the foot of Morro dois Irmaos and end it at the top of Corcovado looking up at Christ the Redeemer and down on the stunning scenery of Rio. And if you need more persuasion you will also be showing your support for street children in Brazil and around the world.

So what’s the challenge?

3 Peaks. 2, sick 000m. 12 hours.

1st summit: Morro dois Irmaos – 550m

2nd summit: Pedra da Gavea – 840m

3rd summit: Corcovado – 710m

Take a look first hand at the Rio 3 Peaks challenge: 

What else does the trip entail?

As well as undertaking the challenge you will also have the chance to visit some of our partner projects in Rio including the Street Child World Cup girls champions Team Brazil! You will also have the chance to see the ‘real Rio’ by visiting a school based in a favela, meeting with a street child circus arts project, and of course they’ll be time to see the famous Rio beaches.

How will climbing 3 Peaks benefit others?

As part of the challenge each trekker will also fundraise to support the work of Street Child United and street children worldwide. We have an experienced fundraising team to help our adventurers reach their targets, and so taking part really can make a huge difference to helping the voices of street children to be heard.
