Our trustee, Aiden Buckley, has conquered Mount Kilimanjaro and raised approximately £3,500 for us to date. Please help Aiden reach his target of £5,000 and sponsor him today! See a snapshot of Aidens journey below.
Day 1 through Tropical forest, saw monkeys, played eye spy and got up to 2,700m
Day 2 through rain forest and alpine desert, got up to 3,300m
Day 3 got tougher like walking through a lunar landscape and had some symptoms of mountain sickness, got to 4,200m.
Day 4 got up to 4,600m
Monday was Day 7 - the 'tough one' - 6 hours to climb 1,250m to reach the false summit which is meant to be the most challenging part of the climb, followed by another 1.5 hours to reach the real summit, the highest point, then a 10 hour climb down Kilimanjaro!
Today is Day 8 and Aiden has reached the summit!
There is still time to sponsor Aiden here
WELL DONE AIDEN we are all so proud of you for supporting our cause!
