Up For A Challenge This Year? Climb The Stairs To The Top Of The Walkie Talkie

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.

Run all the way from the street to the Sky Garden

Have you got what it takes to run or walk up the 35 floors, or 896 stairs, of 20 Fenchurch Street, from street level to the Sky Garden?

What if we said it's for charity...?

The Walkie Talkie Tower Climb is just that: a fundraising challenge which sees participants walking or running the entire height of the building, in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, which helps seriously ill children at the London hospital.

If you've been looking for a new challenge to tackle in 2023, this could well be it. Obviously, it's a fairly physical undertaking, so offers you something to train for and work towards — ideal if your New Year's resolution is to improve your fitness and get moving a bit more this year. You can sprint, run, or even walk up the stairs, so you don't have to be super-fit to sign up.

Plus, it's a great way to help a very worthwhile charity too, if that's also on your 2023 to-do list.

You've got until March to prepare yourself, and you don't have to go it alone. Rope in family, friends or colleagues and sign up as a team, or register to take part solo, and have your family and friends waiting to meet you at the top.

Everyone taking part is asked to raise a minimum of £250 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. There's a small registration fee too, which includes a t-shirt and timing chip.

The views make it all worth it

As well as basking in the glow of knowing you've helped seriously ill children (and improved your fitness while doing so), you'll receive a celebratory drink at the top, to enjoy while taking in the seriously impressive views of London from the Sky Garden. You'll also get a medal to take home with you — all included in the registration fee.

Up for the challenge? The Walkie Talkie Tower Climb 2023 takes place on 4 March 2023. Find out more and sign up now.
