2018 Sponsored Trek to Myanmar


Have you ever wanted to explore an undiscovered land? Now you can have the opportunity whilst raising funds for Jersey Alzheimer’s Association!

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is arguably South East Asia’s best kept secret. Take on an 11 day charity challenge in February 2018 to raise funds for JAA and immerse yourself in a country full of culture, ancient traditions, and jaw-dropping landscapes.

From lakes and mountains, Buddhist monasteries, to vibrant tribal villages; this challenging trek will offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to discover an untouched and unique part of the World.

The Jersey Alzheimer’s Association Sponsored Trek to Myanmar will take place from 8 to 18 February 2018 inclusive.

Details of the Trek have now been finalised with the organisers, Charity Challenge.

You now have the opportunity to secure a place.

Please see this link: 


Please read the online Charity Challenge documents: Notes & Kit List. 

Then if you wish to do so register direct with Charity Challenge as soon as possible. Places will be secured on a first come first served basis.

For clarity we need a minimum of 12 people to do the Trek; the maximum number is 20.

A Registration Fee of £395 is required in order to secure a place on the Trek; this is essential in order to secure flights at the earliest opportunity and at the lowest cost possible.

All participants need to pay the Registration Fee of £395 on booking then the balance of £1,979 eight weeks before the Trek. The total cost is therefore £2,374 which is payable to Charity Challenge.

NB The total of £2,374 DOES NOT include the cost of:-

  Travel from and to Jersey

  Any UK accommodation (should you need to stay overnight)

  Visas (to be confirmed)


  Travel Insurance

  Clothing and equipment  

  Spending Money (tips, gifts, drinks, snacks)

  Any unknown air taxes in excess of £50

As a registered participant on the Trek you are invited to raise as much as you can for Jersey Alzheimer’s Association ie. beyond the total cost of undertaking the Trek itself. 

The fundraising target for each participant is £2,000.

NB This is a guide figure for each person taking part, not a sum that has to be raised.

Many thanks again for your kind support of our charity.
