Milly's climb for Alice x
Raising money for: Alices Escapes
Milly Pyne

The Challenge

I'm 14 and I'm climbing Kilimanjaro to scatter my sister's ashes and to raise money for her charity, Alice's Escapes, so that more poorly children can enjoy fun together with their families

The Charity

Alice's Escapes gives holidays to families with terminally and seriously ill children. When Alice was ill, I loved us getting away, just my family, no one else! So Alice made a charity & I promised her that I would carry on fundraising to give holidays to more children like her. Not everyone gets better, but everyone can make memories. Thank you x

The Training

I have started running three times a week and I use the gym as well. But at weekends, we go walking in the mountains to get used to going up and down steep bits (I'm getting quite good now)! I have raised just over £7,000 for this trek, but I've raised well over £100,000 in total (for different charities). I love being able to keep my promise to Alice AND raise money at the same time is a perfect challenge. I think it will be emotional at the top but happy emotional :) not sad. Love Milly x
