Prostate Cymru announce The Big Trek to Machu Picchu.

Prostate Cymru are thrilled to announce their new challenge The Big Trek to Machu Picchu in September, 2022.

This incredible adventure will be from the 8th – 18th September 2022 and will be through some of the most stunning scenery in the world.

The challenge will take people through the rarely used Inca highway, starting in the heart of the Urubamba valley, passing snow-capped mountains and glacial peaks, ending at Peru’s most famous Inca ruin, Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu was abandoned in the forest for over 500 years until this incredible ruin was re-discovered in 1911 by American historian Hiram Bingham.

The trip will also include exploring Cusco, walking through the Silque River Valley, and taking in the incredible sight of the sun rising over the Inca ruin, Machu Picchu.

There are also two optional adventures, white water rafting down the Urubamba River and trekking the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain to see the spectacular sight of natural covers, for an additional cost.

The trip will be led by one of Prostate Cymru’s Ambassadors, so keep an eye out on our social media for that exciting announcement.

If you’d like to join Prostate Cymru for this incredible challenge there is a registration fee of £250 and a fundraising target of £4000.

Event Co-Ordinator Chris Leyshon said, “Prostate Cymru are so excited to be announcing their first oversees challenge with The Ultimate Travel Company. This is something we have been working towards as a charity and we can’t wait to raise money through this challenge to help save the males in Wales.”

The fundraising from The Big Trek to Machu Picchu will help Prostate Cymru support treatments for Welsh men and improve the equipment for prostate diseases as well as funding research and innovation across Wales to ensure men have the best available treatment from the NHS in Wales.

With 1 in 8 men in Wales being diagnosed with prostate cancer it’s so important that we are able to help raise awareness and educate men about prostate diseases and the risks.
