Welcome to the official site of The Message Trust's Three Peaks Challenge 2017!
We are glad that you are considering joining us for our annual fundraising event!
This year’s event is the fourth annual Three Peaks Challenge. On Saturday 14 October, The Message Trust South Africa will be climbing Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak, and Lion’s Head in one day to raise funds for our work with youth at risk across Cape Town.
Join us to break the cycle of poverty, unemployment, gangsterism, and crime that negatively impacts young people in our communities across Cape Town.
You can be one of the 50 activists we need to reach our fundraising goal of R125 000. Each activist goal is to raise a minimum target of R2500.
