Since Trekstock began, over 50,000 young people have been diagnosed with cancer. Thriving beyond cancer often presents challenges, questions and uncertainty for the future. For these young people, their journey doesn’t stop after treatment.
At Trekstock we strive to challenge the norm of traditional giving, offering young people inspiring events, great products and design, and a creative platform to fundraise. In doing so, we are communicating a vital message through the things they love and letting these unique experiences do the talking. Together we hope to create real change.
How Trekstock evolved
5 years ago, Trekstock was set up to support a close friend of founder, Sophie. She decided to go on a trek to raise money and before we knew it, the charity was funding cancer research of the highest standard.
After successfully funding clinical research, our work now focuses on researching the needs of those who have survived cancer to guide our support and enable them to thrive.
Although a young charity, with internationally respected musician Mark Ronson as a Patron and One Direction’s Harry Styles and Liam Payne as Ambassadors, Trekstock draws support from many influential artists worldwide as well as from publications such as Vogue, The Sunday Times and NME.
Trekstock has grown rapidly over a short period of time, helping to raise vital awareness and support for this important cause.
Engaging with supporters
Trekstock naturally communicates with partners and supporters through social media and has an active online community of supporters and friends including major brands and organisations. Trekstock holds live fundraising events, shows and comedy nights and has a presence at many of the UK’s major music festivals.
Trekstock works to provide a platform to combine creative areas of music, fashion and art to target and educate young people to lead a healthier lifestyle, whilst raising awareness and funds to help support young people beyond cancer.
We hope you will join us on our journey…
