The rally consists of 38 relay legs, using only human-power, participants complete the endurance circuit of the Cornish Coastline by running, jogging, walking, rowing, kayaking, cycling or swimming ...
ShelterBox is made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. No ifs. No buts.
When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. This is why we provide the tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.
We do things differently. We were born different. We started life as a small organisation in rugged West Cornwall in the UK and have grown to make a big impact across the world. We don’t follow the crowd – we’ve carved our own path that leads straight to the families we support.
We are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter when disaster strikes. This drives us to transform the support of our donors, fundraisers and volunteers into the hope and power of families all over the world - the power to rebuild homes, lives and communities.
Our impatience leads to determination. We will do whatever it takes to ensure that no family goes without shelter.
