YMCA Charity Challenge; Conquer Mt Fuji!
This is not your usual Fuji climb. Join us as we take a contemplative walk through Japanese forests to ascend Japan's highest peak (3,776m) and witness one of Asia's enchanting sunrises. Funds raised through this adventure fundraiser will go towards Y Camp Challenge, a quarterly outdoor adventure camp for individuals with special needs.
Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone, is a well-known geographical, cultural and spiritual symbol of Japan, frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers. Our base camp will be YMCA Tozanso, nestled at the foot of Mount Hakone, surrounded by lush green forest, and blessed with a stunning view of Mount Fuji. We will access the mountain via the 5th Station of Subashiri route at an altitude of 1,970m, accompanied by beautiful Japanese forests up to 2,700m.
With a $4,000 fundraising goal per pax, you will enable multiple individuals with special needs to acquire life skills at Y Camp Challenge and to offer yourself a chance to conquer the sacred mountain; Mount Fuji. You will be part of the team that represents YMCA of Singapore, alongside teams from YMCA Tochigi and YMCA Tozanso. We look forward to having you join us on this remarkable friendship climb!
