Cuso Challenge

A Trek That Changes Lives!

For most participants of the Cuso Challenge 2018, scaling Machu Picchu wasn’t just an opportunity to challenge themselves. It was important to know they were helping others. “It was about giving back,” says Kate, 29. “This experience—it changed me.”

Reaching the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu was a moment Kate, and all the other hikers, will never forget. “It was the craziest experience ever,” she says. “All the feelings that we pushed through came back to us. We were so excited, we were so tired. Everyone was so happy we all made it.

For Sandra, 56, “It was a move outside of my comfort zone to boost my self-confidence and I got to share the experience with my daughter Clara.”

Cuso alumni Katherine 65, and her husband Paul, 73 also trekked in 2018 and said, “It is awesome, in the truest sense of the word, to have trekked that far,” she says. “We’re really happy we took on the challenge.”
