On 21 September, a group of Bishops boys along with other climbers will attempt to complete the 13 Peaks Challenge within 48 hours to raise funds for The Rhino Orphanage.

The 13 Peaks is a trail of 110km, originally set by ultra-trail runner Ryan Sandes and Kane Reilly (2010K), which includes a total vertical climb of over 6km.

The Rhino Orphanage is a registered NPO based in Limpopo Province and is the first specialist, dedicated and non-commercial centre that cares for orphaned and injured baby rhinos with the only aim being to release them back into the wild.
