Chris Burke's Kilimanjaro Challenge!

Fundraiser: 
Chris Burke

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ChrisBurke3

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

In September, I will be embarking upon the trip of a lifetime to conquer the heady peaks of Kilimanjaro! I will be taking part in an organised trip that I have self funded, as it's a personal challenge for me that'll mean I can tick something off my bucket list!!

However,I figured there had to be some gain to my pain!

4 years ago one of my mates, (pictured),suffered a heart attack at 41 which subsequently led to a quadruple heart bypass. Sadly this is becoming more and more common in men in their 40's. However, luckily for us, Macker survived and is now fitter than ever. My Dad has also suffered heart problems, and has been fitted with a stent to keep him well. So with this being a very real issue to me, I have decided to help raise money for The British Heart Foundation, as without the money they raise and invest in research, these important people in my life, might not have had the best chances of survival. Heart disease is still the UKs biggest killer with 570 people dying EVERY DAY - so every penny raised for this great, worthwhile charity could be helping to save the life of someone you know.

So dig deep, or just dig into the copper jar - all donations are welcome.

Kili here I come.........!
