Winding its way across the north of China, from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind’s most impressive accomplishments. As part of this adventure, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture.
Over five days, you’ll trek between mist-covered mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Swapping the majesty of the Great Wall for the hustle and bustle of Beijing, you will discover this great city’s confounding and contrasting culture. Immerse yourself in the ancient history of the Forbidden City and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square.
Best of all, every step you take you will raise vital funds to support AMDF’s essential support services and research, education and advocacy initiatives
Living with mito is hard. It robs the body’s cells of energy causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure and extreme tiredness. Just getting out of bed can be a huge challenge and many sufferers spend extended periods in hospital.
In support of those who can’t, you will walk the Great Wall of China as part of the Bloody Long Trek, raising vital funds for AMDF’s essential support services and research, education and advocacy initiatives.
With your help, we can continue to offer support for those affected by mito, whether they are going through the diagnostic process (which can take years), dealing with the disease daily, or coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
With every step you take, you will fund support services and vital research into this devastating disease.
