    If you would like to bring your friends and family to New York with you, please get in touch with the Unique Challenges Team.

    The cost of your package has been calculated at the time of the event launch in November 2019. Due to the possible fluctuations in the financial market, for the forthcoming year (2020) and the value of the GBP against the US Dollar, please be aware that should the exchange rate fluctuate above 3% on the cost of the challenge, the charity will, unfortunately, be forced to pass on any increase in costs (or reduce your costs for any decrease if applicable). The final price will be confirmed to you prior to the Final Balance being due, any costs below 3% will be covered by Walk the Walk in Action and will not be passed on. The fluctuations of currency are out of our control, we will keep you informed of any changes.
