Climb4Hope 2021

You provide hope. We cover the rest.

Climb4Hope SA is a foundation which endeavours to raise funds for various charities including DKMS Africa. A foundation that reaches out to help people and animals in need.

All events are centred around the outdoors, bringing people together.

Come support the Climb4Hope SA 2021 event in Montagu to raise funds for DKMS Africa.

Enjoy a weekend away in this idyllic Breede River Valley setting – climbing and hiking, to raise funds for this very worthy cause.

Where: Montagu, Western Cape
When: Saturday 13 November 2021
Venue: De Bos Guest Farm

The event will take place in Montagu over the weekend of the 12 and 13 November 2021, with the actual climbing and hiking day being on Saturday 13th.

All climbers and hikers must register online to receive an event T-shirt, DKMS Tope and Goodie Bag, together with their sponsorship forms (download), which they can use to raise personal/individual sponsorship.

Saturday the 13th at 8am, all participants and supporters must congregate at De Bos Guest Farm in Montagu to be briefed on the structure of the event.

Saturday morning, hikers will set off on one of the hiking trails around town and teams of climbers (2 in a team) will go to one of the many rock crags in the Montagu area, armed with a climbing score sheet, and climb as many rock climbs as possible to raise funds for these very worthy causes.

Typically a relatively competent team can climb 15 to 20 routes in a day. And a strong hiker can walk between 15 and 20 km in a day.

5 PM will be cut-off time and all climbers and hikers must return to De Bos Guest Farm and hand in their scoresheets.

The evening will revolve around a braai and general social gathering, during which there will be speeches from the organisers and sponsors, and there will also be a prize giving ceremony, where climbers and hikers will receive prizes for various achievements during the day. And some spot prizes!

If you can't join us at the event please consider sponsoring a climber.

Spread the word

Another great way to help is to simply tell people about the stem cell register, and encourage them to visit the DKMS website to find out more and sign up to become a blood stem cell donor. So whether you send a quick message to your family group chat, talk to your bubble on a walk, or send some emails round to colleagues - this simple action could save someone’s life in the future.

However you choose to get involved, you will be making a huge difference to people living with blood cancer and blood disorders. Thank you.
