Our involvement in the NYC Marathon is as a fundraising event and we hope that you will raise as much as possible to help more young people turn their lives around. We have set four different fundraising targets that you can choose from, as below:
With all of these targets, at least 70% of your fundraising goes to support the young people that need it the most. Read the story of Georgia Hardie to find out how your support is helping others.
You will benefit from the dedicated Adventure Challenge Team who will support you along the way and once registered you will gain access to our Participant Information Centre online containing a plethora of information about the Challenge, training advice (from a qualified Personal Trainer) and tried & tested fundraising tips.
For all of the travel packages you will need to take care of a few details yourself:
Important: UK nationals can enter the USA with a ten year passport that must be valid for the intended period of stay (which can be no longer than 90 days without a visa). If your passport is valid for less than 90 days, you will only be admitted up to the validity of your passport.
British travellers to the USA under the Visa Waiver Programme must get authorisation via the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) prior to their journey. Visitors should register through the ESTA website at esta.cbp.dhs.gov and are advised to do so at least 72 hours prior to travel. If you do not have an ESTA you will be refused travel to the USA. The US Customs & Border Protection Department charge $14 per application for an ESTA (Information from www.fco.gov.uk).
