Raising money for: Saint Michaels Hospice Harrogate

Rachel D

The Challenge

Trekking from Lukla, in Nepal, to Everest Base Camp at 5334 meters high. Trekking on average 6-8 hours a day to reach our goal.

The Charity

Because of the great work they do to support patients and families at their time of need, as well as the ongoing support and care they offer. Having visited the Hospice and seen first hand what is on offer at no cost to the patient or their families.

The Training

I am doing lots of hill and mountain climbing to build on my stamina to be able to complete the challenge. I have not completed anything of this nature before and so I am a novice. I am enjoying the countryside of North Yorkshire that I would not have seen if I was not doing this training.
