Fundraising Target


Join Islamic Relief Canada on an epic multi-day hiking, biking, and horseback riding adventure through Jordan, as you challenge your limits!

Reach New Limits

Immerse yourself in the landscapes and adventures of Jordan. Grab a good pair of hiking shoes and wander through the mesmerizing desert of Jordan, from Petra to Wadi Rum.

Between November 4 – 12, you will get the full experience of exploring through Jordan, as our itinerary will be jam packed with hiking, biking, and horseback riding all to support vulnerable Syrian Refugees living within Jordan. Be prepared for a trip of a lifetime!

Support Syrian Refugees in Jordan

Through the Jordan Challenge, you will visit Islamic Relief projects in Jordan focusing on providing Syrian refugees with Shelter, Education and Protection Services. You will also have the chance to meet the team on the ground, and learn how your support is making an impact directly from those who are benefiting from orphans, to widows to many more. From this experience, you will have a wider understanding of how Islamic Relief operates and become an expert on the cause you will be supporting! 

All participants will receive an email with a link to their personal crowdfunding page. Your goal is to raise $3,500!

Our teams will get in touch with you within 5 business days after signing up and provide you with tips and tools on how to kick-start your crowdfunding journey!

All money raised by participants will go directly towards our Syria Appeal.
