Sahara Desert Trek // November 2nd // Tony

Event dates: Saturday 2nd November – Saturday 9th November

On the 2nd of November, Tony Harpur will be discovering true adventure in the awe-inspiring Sahara Desert whilst raising funds for The Change Foundation.
The Change Foundation UK has been changing the lives of young people using sport for 43 years!
The Change Foundation is an award-winning charity that uses sport to change the lives of young people. They deliver targeted long-term interventions for the most vulnerable young people through Coach Mentors with lived experience, providing regular sports sessions, personalised mentoring, and work-related opportunities.
 
Tony will be covering 100km on this five-day trek, which is certainly challenging, unforgiving, and life-changing. After punishing his feet over hard, rock terrain and hot sand, Tony will be camping each night with very basic facilities.
 
Please support Tony and The Change Foundation with this demanding, yet inspiring challenge.
