About Trek for Kids Virtual Trek

Sign up for a virtual trek, your own 10-day challenge and join in with Trek for Kids from the comfort of your own home/office.  You will be supporting Trek for Kids and all 40 of our trekkers who will set off on 20 March to climb the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia.

The Trek for Kids virtual trek is open to all GSK employees and free to enter. All you need to do is sign up for a series of 10 daily challenges, including stairs and some walks.  Some days will be easier and others harder to reflect the journey of the 40 trekkers in the mountains of Ethiopia.  But this challenge is realistic for most people.  Every day you complete will unlock donations by GSK to support our work in Ethiopia with Save the Children. 

How it will work

You will be invited to start the challenges from 18 March. 

Completing each daily challenge will unlock a badge and exclusive content giving you access to what the trekkers are experiencing, where the Trek of Kids money is going and what it is achieving for mothers and children in Ethiopia. There will be some surprises along the way! For each badge you complete, GSK will donate to Save the Children. If you wish, you can make your own donation or ask friends and family to sponsor you – but this is mainly a chance for you to join the trekkers and trigger donations by GSK.

Your challenge begins now, sign up today! Let’s get GSK trekking!
