“On 22nd March, West Ham Foundation’ s Awareness match against Sunderland marked the beginning of the Foundation’s fundraising campaign for it’s 16 young members’ forthcoming Peru trek.
Throughout the selection process they showed application and enthusiasm to seize this unique opportunity and are now underway with fundraising and training.
When they complete their trek to Lake Titicaca (3,810m), they will meet the local young football fans who will be waiting to challenge them as part of the Copa Claro, the schools’ challenge cup.
The young trekkers need to contribute to the cost of the expedition -£68,000 -and so are hosting a variety of fundraising events including a sponsored London stadium orienteering journey.
To help these young people, please donate to their Just Giving page
