Alabaré 50km High Atlas Mountain Challenge.
Challenge yourself, tick that box on your bucket list, and see the real Morocco while raising valuable funds for Alabaré.
This amazing challenge, taking place on 18 - 21 May 2022, will see you transported to exotic North Africa, to take part in a 50km long, challenging trek in the spectacular High Atlas Mountains. Experience Berber villages, mountain trails, and the exotic souks of Marrakech.
Arriving into Marrakech, you will be transferred to the High Atlas Mountains where after lunch, the 50km challenge trek through the High Atlas Mountains will begin. You will trek on wide trails, over passes and through beautiful valleys reaching remote Berber villages. On the Thursday and Friday nights you camp under huge African skies, with plentiful food freshly prepared by our team of Moroccan chefs. After completing the trek, you will be transferred to your hotel in Marrakech for a shower and celebration meal! The trip ends in Marrakech on the Sunday, with lunch on a roof top restaurant and hopefully with time to explore the famous souk, and barter for bargains, before returning to the airport for your flight home.

Alabaré knows that a small but significant number of Veterans struggle in their civilian lives, and tragically find themselves without a home or place to go. Through our homeless service, we have found that the camaraderie Veterans find in others with similar experiences and who understand life in the Forces, is a key asset in their recovery process. Building on this knowledge, in 2009 we were delighted to open our first Home for Veterans in Plymouth. Today we support over 100 vulnerable Veterans every night through 21 homes in England and Wales. The problems that lead Veterans to become homeless are varied but can include poor physical or mental health, addiction, debt, domestic abuse or unemployment. The majority of Veterans we help have lost touch with their families and friends, becoming isolated with little support. Our teams assist each individual to adapt to their new homes and access professional help to overcome their specific problems. Crucially we are there to help Veterans rebuild their confidence and self-esteem and move on through volunteering, training and employment, and ultimately enabling a more fulfilling life.
