At Christopher Ward, we love those who share our underdog spirit: the doers, the daredevils and the downright determined.
And our Challenger programme is our way of helping people with exceptional talent, but less-than-exceptional bank balances. Whether they’re musicians, athletes or explorers, we’ve got their back.
Since its inception, the programme has helped to create four world champions and one Olympic gold medallist (step forward Henley’s Will Satch).
One recipient is ultra-runner Jamie Maddison, who cites his most gruelling challenge as a 70-mile run across the Saryesik-Atyrau desert – completed in just 30 hours.
“Over the past few years, Christopher Ward has backed me on my trips – both with equipment and funding,” he says. “This has allowed me to pursue my most exciting expeditions and adventures. I’m so thankful.”
