In partnership with The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, Choose a Challenge is offering 20 explorers from Boston University the chance to follow in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary on a journey to the foot of the tallest mountain in the world. Explorers arrive in bustling Kathmandu to explore a city like no other. Then, it's off to Lukla where the trek begins. The well-worn Everest trail winds its way through the Himalayan Mountain Range - traipsing through valleys, passing over rivers, and trekking past sacred monasteries to reach the base of Mount Everest.
But how does this work?
Here at Choose a Challenge, we have a wholly unique model which combines the best of adventure travel with the opportunity to do an amazing thing for others. 50% of your minimum fundraising target will go towards the cost of your adventure and the other 50%+ will go towards the incredible work of The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation.
Registration fees (you pay): $490
Fundraising target (you raise): $4,500-$5,500
Extended Return Option (you choose): +$550
Optional Extension Trip: Nepalese Safari Chitwan NAtional Park

Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation
B+ honors the life of Andrew McDonough. Andrew battled leukemia, septic shock and complications of childhood cancer for 167 days before passing away on July 14, 2007, at the age of 14. Andrew’s B+ blood type became his family’s and friends’ motto throughout his fight against childhood cancer — to “Be Positive”. Currently we are the largest provider of financial assistance to families of kids with cancer in the United States.
