Are you ready to climb the highest mountain in the world, from your very own home? 

We’re challenging you to climb the height of Everest - standing 8,848 metres tall! – between 1 April and 31 May. You’ve got 61 days to reach the peak and raise vital funds for patients and staff at the Royal United Hospitals Bath.


This is your challenge, your way

You can climb the distance on your stairs at home or walk/run/cycle on the hills in the great outdoors – or both, do what suits you!

Please just remember to follow the latest UK Government advice here: 

Can I take part as a team? Yes and relay teams are very welcome - where you aim to reach Everest’s 8,848m summit collectively. Whilst you probably won’t be able to do the climbing together in person due to restrictions (unless you are part of the same household), taking part in a relay event is a great way to stay connected with each other.


Reach great heights this Spring for your local NHS, the Royal United Hospitals Bath.

Over the last year, our hospital and its dedicated staff have been working under intense pressure in difficult circumstances to care for patients no matter what. Figuratively speaking, they have been moving mountains for us all. And it’s not over yet, the second wave has hit the RUH harder than the first.

We need your help. By climbing your own virtual mountain, you’ll be making sure we can care for our staff and continue to make a difference for all our patients, both during this pandemic and in the years to come.

We’re asking all Sofa to Summit participants to raise as much as you are able during these difficult times – and anyone who raises £100 or more will receive an exclusive expedition patch to commemorate their achievement.

No matter how large the mountain ahead of us is, together we can overcome it.
