Bay of Plenty

It’s time to climb for life! The Mount Everest Challenge is BACK for 2024 and we are SO excited!

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.

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