Challenges

#irChallenges are life-changing trips all over the world where participants engage in physically demanding adventures to raise money and awareness for IRC projects.

See our full list of upcoming challenges below!

Each Challenge is a 6-8 day trip with 15 participants conquering an activity that will “challenge” you not only physically but emotionally as well.

Why not join us for an adventurous trek 4,600 meters above sea level where you will experience some of the most amazing snow-covered mountain views, ending with a visit to the famous Machu Picchu?

Or maybe a nice bike Challenge across Turkey where you will overcome some very intense uphill terrain, while learning about the rich Islamic History of this amazing country?

Participating in one of our Challenges is a great way to see the world while also raising money to make a difference for millions of people that need our support.

So if you are ready to fundraise and help those in need, why not travel the world at the same time?!
