London: Age Concern and Help the Aged is calling on people to get their hiking boots on and experience the challenge of a lifetime with the Charity’s Trek China 2010 fundraising event.

Taking place from 15th-23rd May 2010, Trek China offers adventurous trekkers the perfect opportunity to experience a country steeped in history and culture while raising vital funds to help disadvantaged older people in the UK and overseas.

Early bird participants who sign up now will also be able to take advantage of a reduced registration fee of just £199. All funds raised from the Trek will help free disadvantaged older people from poverty, isolation and neglect. The event is open to everyone aged over 18 who’s is keen to get fit for a physical challenge and relishes the great outdoors.

Miranda Harman, Event Fundraiser at Age Concern and Help the Aged commented: “China offers travellers breathtaking scenery, a rich and vibrant culture and a journey across a challenging landscape. The Trek is also a great way for single travellers to experience the holiday of a lifetime and make some great friends while making a difference to the lives of older people at the same time. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity which we hope will be too good to resist and it’s all in a great cause too!”
