Conquer the Summit is a joint fundraising initiative of the Mount Barker Lions and Rotary Clubs.
Generous sponsorship and assistance from our supporters and District Council of Mount Barker normally means that 100% of your registration fee can be donated to Operation Flinders, supporting their wilderness therapy programs in the Flinders Ranges, and other local charities.
Operation Flinders is a South Australian based charitable organisation that runs a unique wilderness adventure program for young people at risk. The program takes participants between the ages of 14 and 18 years on an eight-day exercise in the far-northern Flinders Ranges, providing an opportunity for its participants to break away from their past and grow as valued members of the community.
All funds raised by Conquer The Summit for Operation Flinders are used exclusively to sponsor participants from the Adelaide Hills region.
In 2020, funds were also donated to CFS Heysen Group, for distribution to eight hills fire stations for vital fire fighting equipment.
We hope you can seek additional sponsorship for your efforts and boost the fundraising total this year.
