My story

[p]OK, so here I go again, having been given the opportunity of a lifetime ... to climb to the top of the world, hopefully help set a new Guinness record, and raise money for Wooden Spoon children's charity. All sounds quite straight forward when you put it like that![/p][p]The Wooden Spoon Everest Rugby Challenge takes place over 24 days from 13 April to 6 May 2019. We fly to Kathmandu and then Lhasa before spending the next 6 days getting to Base Camp at 5200m. A further week will be spent on acclimatization walks as we progress to Advanced Base Camp at 6500m. Here we will be only one vertical mile below Everest's summit.[/p][p]We will then attempt to set 2 Guinness world records by playing the highest game of contact rugby and the highest game of mixed touch rugby ever recorded.[/p][p]Still sounding easy? Well then I looked at the team profiles. I'm in the company of international rugby players, services veterans, captains of industry - and lots of younger people[/p][p]So, please dig as deep as you can (don't forget the Gift Aid) to help an old man help a great charity that changes the lives of so many young people across the country[/p][p][url=https://woodenspoon.org.uk][b]https://woodenspoon.org.uk[/b][/url][/p][p]If you would like to know more about my news and events then please visit my website:[/p][p][url=https://www.davidfenton-everestchallenge.com][b]https://www.davidfenton-everestchallenge.com[/b][/url][/p][p]Many thanks in advance for your kind support[/p][p]DF[/p]
