My story

[p]I will soon be leaving Kisharon where I have spent ten incredible years which are culminating with the establishment of a free school next month and the commencement of a £12.5m building project to house it. Given that we still need to raise the final £1m for the building project, as my parting gift, I am doing my part to raise money by taking on one last mad sponsored endurance challenge. Through this, I am hoping to raise £75k in order to endow a classroom in memory of my late father, Dr Bentley Phillips, who passed away in October (27 Tishrei) and who was my role model and inspiration. He a was a well respected doctor who spent his life devoted to helping others.[/p][p]Next month, I will be running the Mont Blanc Marathon (Look at the video below - makes the Antarctic Marathon look like a walk in the park)- it is a 42 km mountain trail run starting in Chamonix and finishing at 2,016m (6,614 feet) altitude. Along the way there is a 2,780 m positive vertical gain and 1,704m vertical drop.The race begins with a relatively easy climb through the valley and up to Argentière (1250m). Things stay relaxed-ish until Allorcine (1260m), nestled at the bottom of a green valley close to Switzerland. Then begins the climb towards to the highest point at the Aiguillette des Posettes (2201m) where there are fantastic views of the panorama of the Mont-Blanc massif before a quad-burning and treacherous descent which includes two sharp, pokey ascents and a final draft down to the finish line [/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bu-QKIcTqy0?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p]
