The TransPerfect Mountain Challenge was born out of the first-hand experience of a local family affected by childhood cancer. After receiving life-changing psychosocial support from the AFANOC team, the family decided to give back to the association through organising an annual fundraising event and initiative, encouraging people to come together and set themselves a physical challenge.
These are the core values of the TransPerfect Mountain Challenge:
These core values not only apply to the sporting attributes needed for the TransPerfect Mountain Challenge, but also to children that are affected by cancer. When a child or adolescent is diagnosed with cancer, they need the courage, strength, determination and great willpower to overcome moments of difficulty during their cancer treatments and to adapt to a temporarily different lifestyle.
We want this reality to be a source of inspiration for those who are in good health, encouraging people get outside and exercise for those who cannot currently do so.
The TransPerfect Mountain Challenge is constantly trying to find new ways to become more sustainable for the community and the planet. Click the link below to find out how we are doing so.
