Raising money for: Msizi Africa

Team Madness

The Challenge

12 people - 12 mountains - 3 days Only the highest mountains in Wales will do (over 3000ft) Total ascent 13654ft Total distance 34.2miles Crashing in a mountain hut each night Yes we are bonkers!

The Charity

Msizi Africa supports iZulu Orphan Projects (IOP) in South Africa. Our climb is in memory of IOP co-founder Chadd, who died in 2009, leaving his wife & co-founder Kate (mother to their 2 toddlers & 2 adopted orphans) with over 1000 orphans to care for according to the IOP aim: to school, feed, clothe & love as many orphan children as possible.

The Training

2 of us climbed Kili in 2010 in Chadd’s memory (dragging 11 friends along) We simply had to, in the wake of such a loss! We were both inspired (having never met one another) by his tales of this beast that ‘nearly broke him.’ One he conquered nonetheless on his quest to change so many lives. It was only after we’d dedicated ourselves to the task that we heard of one another & met. We joined up in Wales to train for Kili & it is THERE we return this year to turn up the pace! Please vote for us!
