Everest challenge ‘the pitch’

The LMAX Exchange Everest Rugby Challenge takes place across 24 days (13 April to 6 May 2019) and will see 24 challengers led by team captains Lee Mears, Ollie Phillips, Shane Williams and Tamara Taylor battle acclimatisation and heights of 6,500 metres to play the highest game of full contact rugby and the highest game of mixed rugby in history – all in support of Wooden Spoon.

The challenge aims to raise more than £200,000, and the money you raise will go towards funding life-changing projects supporting children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage across the UK & Ireland.

Your support helps children throughout the UK and Ireland achieve their Everest.
