How it works Deciding where to go is only part of it. There are two ways to cover the costs of your challenge.
1) Pay for all the associated costs of the trip, including travel insurance, and then raise as much as you can for Roshni.
2) Pay a non-refundable registration fee and your travel insurance and then raise a set minimum amount of sponsorship. If you choose this option, 80 per cent of the minimum sponsorship amount must be received by Roshni 10 weeks before your departure.
