UPCOMING CHX CHALLENGE FUNDRAISING EVENTS

From 2016 to 2018, CHX have partnered with a number of charities and corporate businesses who want to come to the French, Swiss and Italian Alps to challenge themselves on two feet, and raise as money as is humanly possible to support their causes.

In order to help charities maximise revenue CHX aims to make them the very best charity fundraising events on the planet!  We do this by investing and ensuring that the all-inclusive experience is first-class, whether it be in terms of escapism in the mountain refuges, or staying in the best accommodation in the valley. The real value however comes from the intangible, what we simply describe as "the magic of the mountains", and it is this that makes people forge unique friendships and to want to keep coming back!
