What is Quest 79

Quest 79 invites you to “Find Your Inner Gold”

Quest 79 is on a mission to impact 1 Million lives through the gifts of creativity, hope and possibility.  We would love you to join us and help us create a REAL wave of inspiration around the globe.

We are already in over 22 countries around the globe!

Choose a challenge, connected to the number 79 and begin a journey of discovery, adventure and feeling alive!

“I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.” Joseph Campbell, The Hero’s Journey

Check out the backstory here with Karen Darke (MBE), Gold Paralympian.

Gather a team or challenge yourself to 79 hours of activity – exercise, voluntary work – anything you like but it will surely get you out of your comfort zone! The staff team at Precision Hydration did 79 hours of continuous exercise and raised money for charity in the process.

Do something you enjoy 79 times for a whole new experience of commitment and inner strength. Rowan Purrett decided to climb 79 peaks in 79 weeks, getting his family and friends involved in the adventure too.

Commit to a distance like 79 miles or kilometres, and either solo or with a group, take a journey. The Moray Scout Group crossed Scotland, 79 miles from coast to coast by bike and kayak.
