Challenge Cancer Through Adventure is delighted to be a partner charity of Buxton Adventure Festival 2014.
CCTA are a local Peak District based charity that provides encouragement and practical support to individuals with cancer or a life limiting illness to undertake an outdoor adventure challenge that will help to build their confidence and motivate them to make positive decisions and regain control of their lives.
Challenges range from local adventures around the Peak District (including rock climbing, abseiling, hang gliding, paragliding and balloon flights) to great adventures all around the world (including mountaineering and trekking in the Himalayas and the Andes, sailing in Scandinavia, sea kayaking in the Mediterranean, and cycle touring in Europe).
We are a “local charity”. This means that we are only able to support individuals who live in a defined geographic area: for us that means living in Peak District and the surrounding towns and cities.
Partnering with Buxton Adventure Festival will help us to publicise what we do so that we can support more people to take on an adventure challenge.
