About Campaignends 30 Jun 2020, 11:59 PM
Due to COVID-19, the original treks to Everest Base Camp (EBC) planned for Apr 2020 have been postponed to Sep 2020 and Oct/Nov 2020. Even as we stand united to fight against the COVID-19 virus, the teams still want to keep the campaign spirit going with Zoom to EBC!
Zoom to EBC! is a real physical and demanding challenge by climbing 6,000 floors. To simulate the total distance of 65 km from Lukla to EBC which roughly takes 9 days, it is computed that trekkers need to climb a floor in 20 seconds. For example, the 7.5 km trek from Lukla to Phakding which takes 3 hours, translates to climbing 540 floors!
Zoom to EBC! comprises of 9 stages and each stage will take one week to complete. A Zoom call will be hosted every week for sharing of photos and stories for the climb challenge.
Please donate generously, like $1 for every floor that each of the trekkers climb. Together let us show our love and support for the caregivers and persons with mental health conditions.
