Twin x Trekstock x Whistles – High Atlas Trek #ForThe34

34 young adults are diagnosed every day in the UK. In anticipation of our upcoming exclusive trek in collaboration with Whistles and Twin Magazine to raise funds and awareness for Trekstock, Twin has recently partnered with the brilliant filmmaker journalist Fenn O'Meally for the creation of a short film.

During the film Omeally captures a few young and resilient women who have experienced cancer, as they revel in a jovial space, exuding positive energy while discussing their personal definitions of freedom.

For the trek, set to take place on May 23rd, together we will take on the highest peak in North Africa situated in Marrakech. Why? Because 34 young adults are diagnosed a day and when cancer stops you in your tracks in your 20s and 30s, they need Trekstock to get them moving again. And what better way to raise awareness than partnering with some of our companions to spread the word, “We are thrilled to be teaming up with our friends and collaborators at Trekstock and Twin Magazine for such a great cause, and excited to be part of this fantastic fundraising event. Nick Passmore, Creative Director, Whistles”

This will be no walk in the park, with six long days, undulating terrain, heavy packs and making camp by sunset, the team needs your support to help them smash this once in a lifetime challenge. To donate visit Twin x Whistles x Trekstock.

A special thank you to Anna, Ellen, Georgie, Ellen, Caroline & Jolene for sharing their stories.
