April 8th 2020: coronavirus update

As the coronavirus pandemic causes great uncertainty around this year’s calendar of challenge events we want to assure you we are monitoring the situation very closely and letting Team RNIB participants know when we have updates. These events raise vital funds for RNIB to continue our work and we want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone on Team RNIB who continues to train and fundraise on our behalf in these uncertain times.

The Great Wall of China Trek Organisers are still hoping to hold the event between 2 September and 20 September 2020.

For more information, please read the latest COVID-19 statement on their website

Step back in time to the 5th Century BC and take on the Great Wall of China Trek to help support people with sight loss.
