Sat 11th - Sun 12th June 2022

Gympanzees epic 3 Peaks Challenge is back again for 2022! 49 walkers will take on the 3 highest peaks in the UK in just 24 hours, all in support of Gympanzees #ProjectHomeAppeal, our campaign to secure a permanent home in Bristol.

Gympanzees #ProjectHomeAppeal

There are 66,000 children and young people with disabilities within an hour of Bristol and over 1.1 million in the UK. 77% of them cannot access regular leisure facilities, so they cannot play, exercise, or socialise in the same ways as their peers and are twice as likely as non-disabled children to be lonely. This leaves whole families in social isolation, with 72% of parents reporting coping with mental health issues directly resulting from social isolation. Children living with a disability want more understanding and acceptance, more choice of activities, more motivation and encouragement.

This is where Gympanzees come in...

Our solution is a world-class play, exercise and social facility for children and young people with disabilities right here in Bristol. However, we need YOUR HELP to secure this permanent home for Gympanzees. We need to raise £2.2million, which will secure us a building and fill it with specialist rooms and amazing inclusive sensory and exercise equipment. You can explore our plans here

Help us take one step closer to achieving this goal. Please support these amazing walkers and give generously! Your donation will go a long way towards helping children and young people with disabilities to access fun & fitness and take families out of isolation.
