My Story

Hi everyone thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page!! On the 5th May I’ll be attempting to climb the height of Mount Everest, by taking 17 consecutive trips up and down Bennachie. My aim is to do this in under 48 hours giving me an average of less than 3 hours for each trip not including eating & sleeping breaks! After completing the David Goggins 4x4x48 challenge, I decided I wanted to push my physical and mental limits once again but this time for charity. Towards the end of last year my grandpa was given the devastating news that he had terminal cancer, and although there isn’t anything I can do to fix his condition, by doing this I could help to prevent other families from going through the same thing. Cancer is something that affects us all in some way or another at some stage in our lives, however with the advancements in technology being used to battle this disease it makes every penny I can raise even more important. Any donation made in support of my challenge will be massively appreciated, as well as those who takes the time to share my story! Times are understandably tough for everybody just now, but hopefully this challenge will not just raise money but help to inspire and motivate others, or at least just give some much needed positivity! Many thanks to everyone in advance for your support, together we will beat cancer!❤️
