Kilimanjaro Climb October 2013

Raising money for: Dreams And Wishes


The Challenge

We are trekking up Africa’s highest mountain to raise money for charity, no mean feat but an even bigger challenge for our 68 year old ex-Paralympian who will be ascending in his wheelchair. Help Us!

The Charity

Dreams and Wishes are a small charity so they don't receive a massive amount of funding. They aid seriously ill children and their families by making their dreams come true and bringing a smile to their faces during a difficult time.

The Training

For our ex-Paralympian John Harris, this will be a huge physical challenge so every weekend he and the rest of the team are travelling for hours along rough terrain in order to adapt to the mountainous land. This isn't just another charity climb; it is a test of human endeavour. John is expecting to fall from his chair a lot and will need to get out and pull himself along the ground for some parts of the journey. His only reason for doing this is to allow Dreams and Wishes to carry on their work
