Raising money for Action Medical Research

In Nov I will be embarking on a 13 day High Altitude Himalayan Trek culminating with an ascent of Kala Pattar at 18,200ft (higher than the Everest Basecamp) hopefully giving an amzing view of Everest
The Charity
They fund vital research to help stop the suffering of babies & children caused by disease and disability. Successes in their 60 years include a polio vaccine and the now common ultrasound scanner.

I cannot really train for the high altitude in this country but I will be mentally & physically fit. I regularly mountain walk in Snowdonia & The Lake District which will increase nearer to departure day
