Everest Marathon Fund
The Everest Marathon Fund exists to support health and education in rural Nepal. Money is raised through the biennial Everest Marathon both from runners' individual sponsorship and from 'profits' on the race organsiation. The money raised is given to projects which all involve local stakeholders who also make substantial contributions. We are proud that our stunning race can also make a worthwhile impact on the lives of the poorest people of Nepal.
Womens Aid Federation England

Women's Aid provides a package of 24 hour lifeline services for women experiencing domestic violence including the Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline, run in partnership between Women's Aid and Refuge and the Women's Aid website www.womensaid.org.uk

Hi all,

So thanks for visiting my donations page!

Update!

Thanks you to all of you for your support, it really means a lot.

Check out this video for a bit about my race. I unfortunately was very ill for most of the expedition, but still had a great adventure. I finished the race at 20 miles after a very emotional journey!

Cheers.

Mount Everest Marathon

As some of you may know Ill be attempting the Mount Everest Marathon in November. Heading out to Nepal on 9th November and starting an acclimatisation trek from Lukla airport in the Himalayas (apparently the worlds dodgiest airport, hhmmm...). We'll be trekking up to the start point and climbing some of the 'lower' peaks nearby to acclimatise.

The 26.2 miles will be run on the 28th November from above 5000 metres in the everest base camp area. This is providing we pass medicals and have not been too badly affected by the altitude sickness.

Im supporting 2 charities for this:

The first is women's aid, which supports women and children who are unfortunate enough to have domestic violence as part of their lives. I treated quite a few women in a and e with this following assaults, and as I know many others found, it always touched a nerve.

The second is the everest charity attached to the event- all of the trek/marathon/trip etcetc is funded by our own dosh (the runners) so all money donated goes to the various projects in Nepal which are supported, for example one which treats leprosy in the region.

Any donation big or small is really appreciated, thanks so much.

Charlie.
