The Breeze Everest Challenge 2024

The Breeze Everest Challenge 2024

10 Year Anniversary!
26 January 2024

It’s time to climb for life! The Breeze Mount Everest Challenge is back for the 10th time.

You can climb Mauao, the Mount, 38 times in 50 days (the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest) to help raise much-needed funds for the Mount Lifeguard Service, and Omanu Beach and Papamoa Surf Lifesaving Clubs. They’re literally saving lives!

Do it as a team and spread the 38 climbs across the crew (if your team has 38 members then that’s only 1 climb each!) or tackle them all yourself. The challenge runs from Monday, February 12th to Easter Monday.

Check out Mount Everest Challenge on Facebook for more info.  Visit our Givealittle page here.

No you’ll need to keep your own record of your walks. 

No there isn’t. 

Unfortunately not, the challenge has been designed around climbing our iconic Mauao (Mount Maunganui)! 

Yes if you click on the donate button and select Team: Team Mediaworks on the GiveALittle page here

So the touch point is the first step at the base of the climb to Atea-a-Rangi (The Star Compass).
