What Is Climb4Hope?

Founded by climber, mountain guideprolific route guide author and donkey enthusiast Tony Lourens, Climb4Hope in a non-profit organisation that supports various charities – primarily the three mentioned above – through hiking- and climbing-based fundraising events.

The first event took place in 2019 and raised R30 000, with the second taking place in 2020 and raising just under R70 000 – an impressive feat considering the chaos of the pandemic. 2021’s event raised R100 000, and last year a whopping R150 000 was raised.

Climb4Hope is getting bigger and better every year, and the goal for 2023 is R200 000 – join the fun and be part of the change!

In a nutshell, the Climb4Hope event gathers together hikers and climbers in beautiful Montagu to tackle the mission of hiking as many trails and/or climbing as many routes as possible in one day (roughly 7am to 16:30pm). Each competitor needs to round up some sponsors who will pledge to donate a certain amount per route hiked / route climbed.

At the end of the day, scores and fund-raising amounts will be calculated, with a prize-giving in the evening for the day’s best achievements, where this will also be plenty of spot prizes up for grabs (the De Bos donkeys might even pop in for a little visit).

Each entrant will need to pay the R200 entry fee (which covers an event t-shirt and goodie bag) and raise a minimum of R500 – get the support of a few friends and it will be a piece of cake!
