The challenge, which will raise vital funds for Southern Area Hospice Services, will see participants trek for five days though hills, valleys and dense forests of the surrounding area starting at Siem Reap and ascending to the upper plain of Kulen Mountain, before finishing at the amazing Angkor Wat, a temple complex and the largest religious monument in the world.

All the money raised through the trek will help Southern Area Hospice Services to continue their work providing care and support to local people who are living with Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease. Care is provided through a number of services including outpatient clinics in Craigavon.
