'2,500 Participants / $250,000 Target / 250 million Steps Together'

The Climb for Mental Wellness campaign combines fundraising with a call to raise awareness on mental health issues and help reduce the stigma of mental illnesses. This is a 6-week Campaign for a Virtual Climb to Everest Base Camp in support of mental wellness awareness & caregiving.

With tagline 'Climb for Mental Wellness in Solidarity with Caregivers of PMHI', it seeks to mobilise at least 2,500 participants to collectively achieve 250 million steps in 6 weeks and raise $250,000 through digital fundraising. It will be targeted at CAL's caregivers, the caregiving community, CAL's donors, partners, advocates and supporters. Another secondary goal is to increase the support for 48 hikers planning a trip to conquer Everest Base Camp under the #YOLO2020 campaign launched on 28 Nov 2018 aimed at raising mental health awareness. Due to COVID-19, the hikes are rescheduled for September and November 2020.

Through the campaign, we hope to unite our caregiver community as well as our donors and supporters to engage in healthy physical activities regularly during the COVID-19 period. We hope the campaign will cause participants to unite in solidarity for caregivers of persons with mental health issues.
