From 08/05/2021 to 21/08/2022
Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is synonymous with beautiful, rugged landscapes and wonderful trekking and outdoor pursuits. The highest mountain in Wales at 1085m, its Welsh name is Yr Wyddfa, reputedly the burial place of a mythical giant.
A popular summit trek by day-time, it forms a real challenge by night. Standing at the summit by moonlight will be an unforgettable experience, as will seeing the sunrise from the mountain slopes.
As you descend, you’ll be able to see the spectacular landscapes open up before you as the day grows lighter. You’ll celebrate your huge achievement with a slap-up breakfast!
I want to take part
We don’t have charity places in this event, but you can still take part and help young people with cancer.
Simply buy your place directly through the organisers, and select Teenage Cancer Trust when you choose your charity. There are a range of dates available throughout 2021 and 2022 so choose the dates that suit you.
They’ll let us know once you’ve registered, and we’ll send you a free Teenage Cancer Trust T-shirt along with a handy welcome pack filled with helpful fundraising ideas.

How you can help young people
£100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find out about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
£230 could buy a real hair wig and salon styling from our Hair4U project – and help make the pain of hair loss a little easier to deal with.
£500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
£810 could provide wifi or a phoneline in a unit for a year, so young people always feel connected and can keep up with their studies.
£950 could pay for a young person to attend our post-treatment programme, The Way Forward, and deal with tough issues like fertility, jobs and money with other young people.
