borne’s costa rica challenge

In October 2022, 7 Brits and 6 Aussies, led by Extreme Leader Alan Chambers MBE, made their way across Costa Rica, in a Coast2Coast Challenge to raise awareness and funds for research into premature birth.

Starting from the Caribbean Sea they hiked, kayaked and cycled east to west through jungle rarely used in tropical heat and humidity.

The group pushed themselves mentally and physically beyond their limits kayaking, hiking and cycling around 270km. These incredible fundraisers truly excelled at this challenge for Borne – and we couldn’t be more grateful!
