The Everesting Challenge

Steven Tonkinson’s 29,029 foot climb in 36 hours for ShelterBox

ADVENTURE AT 29,000 FEET


Steven Tonkinson’s first journey as a ShelterBox Adventurer has been nearly a year in the making.

Starting August 25th, the Everesting Challenge dares hikers to climb 29,029 feet in Utah’s Wasatch Mountains-the equivalent height of Mount Everest-in just 36 hours.

“Last year I participated in 29029 Everesting event at Snowbasin, Utah and it was amazing! I met so many incredible people sharing this life-changing experience.  I got to learn about them and their story and vice versa,” Steven said, “The whole time I was thinking how awesome it would be to do this event with a box on my back and expose all these great people to ShelterBox and its mission. So this year I signed up again for the event and I will be doing it with a box on my back.”

Although Steven has made a habit of running the annual Miami Marathon with a big green ShelterBox strapped to his back, his new Everesting Challenge is set to take his fundraising aspirations to new heights. 

Will you help Steven reach his goal of raising $29,029 in life-saving aid for families displaced by conflict and disaster?
