What Others Say

I challenged myself further than I ever expected and it was very pleasing. I am proud to say that I never gave up even when I really didn’t want to cross any more contour lines. I would take more photos next time to remind me of the fun I had and how beautiful nature was. If someone were to complete this journey I would tell them to be prepared to have a life-lasting memory and to be greatly challenged. Thank you for the extremely rewarding and amazing experience. – Leanne, Bronze Award.
