Big Steps for Small Feet

We’re taking on Ben Nevis at night, taking Big Steps for Small Feet.

This is a brand new event and an exciting collaboration between 10 baby and child loss charities.

Join us and other baby and child loss charities next summer and challenge yourself to climb the highest mountain in the British Isles overnight.

Ben Nevis stands at an impressive 1343m (roughly 4,00ft) and reaching the summit is guaranteed to be unforgettable experience. This collaborative event hopes to give those who need it the chance to walk and talk together, scaling new heights to unite and raise money for their chosen charity, working to support bereaved families every day.

The overnight climb starts just after sunset; walkers should reach the summit of Ben Nevis just in time for sunrise! During the descent, the spectacular landscapes appear as the day grows lighter. A celebratory team breakfast will be served upon arrival back to the base.

“Losing a child is an unimaginable pain. A time where you can feel very alone in a big world. We will walk together and talk together, no mountain too tall as we aim for our stars on the week before Father’s Day,”  Michael, Kyle's Dad
