My story

[p]Quick update everyone - 74 Mountains climbed now and over half the stairs climbed, make sure to check out the Facebook for the 'Summit' videos and updates.[/p][p]https://www.facebook.com/100mountainsuk/[/p][p][b]Who? [/b]Hello, my name is Ben and I am [b]#justsomeguywalkingupanddownstairs[/b], [/p][p][b]What?[/b] I have been climbing stairs for charity, having already completed 12 peaks around the UK, and the worlds 100 tallest buildings. See the details at the page below. [url=https://www.facebook.com/Bens3PeakStairChallenge]https://www.facebook.com/1[/url]00mountainsuk[/p][p][b]When?[/b] On the 1st of August 2020 I will be setting off on my biggest challenge so far. To ‘virtually’ climb the [b]100 tallest mountains in 100 countries[/b]. This will take me over a year![/p][p][b]Why?[/b] Well this a real challenge for me, with a lung condition, a spinal injury that ended my [b]RAF[/b] career. Click read more for the rest of the story.[/p][p]This combination means that now I do struggle a bit. I will not let this hold me back though, and with the recent COVID-19 pandemic my doctors have warned me that I will be more heavily restricted for the foreseeable future due to my lung condition, until there is a vaccine. I haven’t even been able to take up my new graduate position in Building Surveying following my Masters.[/p][p]So, rather than let this hold me back, I have taken this as an opportunity to dedicate part of my life to the charities that have helped and supported me directly and do amazing work for others. As a RAF veteran, inspired by [b]Captain Tom Moore’s[/b] 100 laps, the recent [b]100th anniversary of the RAF[/b], next year’s [b]100th anniversary of The Royal British Legion[/b], and a desire to give back to the amazing charities that support veterans, serving members and people with lung conditions, this challenge was born. [/p][p][b]Where?[/b] I might not have access to the real thing, but I do have a 7-step flight of stairs (my virtual route up the mountains), a good imagination, a stubborn attitude, and an aim. [/p][p][b]How?[/b] With my trusty walking poles, indoor slip-on shoes, tracking watch and trusty mechanical tally counter I’ll be tracking my progress against the total.[/p][p]This isn’t going to be easy, and I can’t run up them like I used to, I need to have days off and I must come down backwards to protect my back. I will be live streaming all the climbing sessions, with a ‘Wall of Fame’ for sponsors, aiming to be climbing for 3 days on 1 day off whilst remaining flexible to the pattern of climbing, and pacing myself with set targets of flights per day. [/p][p]Although given the length of this challenge, there will have to be some flexibility, I will struggle with my health at times and need longer rest so, I will be posting the next days sessions the night before.[/p][p]With regular updates on social media and a variety of special events and monthly themes throughout the year to keep it interesting and keep me sane! I hope to raise not just money for the charities but also awareness of what these charities do. The main charities are…[/p][p][b]SSAFA________________________([/b][url=https://www.ssafa.org.uk/]https://www.ssafa.org.uk/[/url])[/p][p][b]Forces In The
