We're climbing for life! The Mount Everest Challenge is underway and we are gunning to make this the best year yet!

Support us as we 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!

All funds raised will be collected by The Mediaworks Foundation, and distributed evenly to our three awesome charities at the close of the challenge!

Everest Challenge Update!  5 April 2024

We are nearly there!

We would like to extend a massive thank you to all of our supporters for the 2024 Mount Everest Challenge!

Hopefully recovery from the hard yards is going well, with lots of deserved snacks and relax time for all of our local legends who took part in the challenge itself, which wrapped up on the 1st of April.

Together, with a whopping 119 participants, and 57 teams, we have raised $46,170 for our legendary local Surf Lifeaving Clubs in Omanu, Papamoa and Mount Maunagnui!

But we're not done yet...

As usual, our donations will remain open until the 14th of April - and we are very excited to see just how far we can get in that time! - Any additional support in advocating for fundraising from within our local community is very much appreciated during this time.

For pics of the challenge, giveaways, and further updates, join our social media communities on Facebook and Instagram!

Happy Friday, and bring on our final week of fundraising!

- Mediaworks Team
