My story

[p]We started our journey at the end of 2019 hoping to take part in the ultimate endurance ski touring challenge, [url=https://www.everestinthealps.com][b]Everest in the Alps[/b][/url][b],[/b] uphill skiing the height of Mount Everest[b].[/b][/p][p]Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the event from happening. We had covered hundreds of kilometres and as a team we were undeterred and persevered with our training, hoping to conquer a similar challenge. With travel restricted, we decided to walk the height of [b]Everest on Snowdon[/b], the highest mountain in Wales.[/p][p]Mount Everest is not only iconic as the world’s highest peak, it’s also synonymous with the greatest obstacles in life.[/p][p]We are taking on this challenge to raise money and awareness for [b]The Brain Tumour Charity[/b] and [b]Parkinson’s UK[/b].[/p][p]Follow us on Instagram...[/p][p]https://www.instagram.com/teamsahasa/[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]THE CHALLENGE[/b][/p][p]The goal is to climb the height of Everest: [b]8,848m[/b][/p][p]Snowdon is [b]1,085m[/b], but we need to make around [b]10 ascents[/b][/p][p]Walking uphill (and down) for [b]3 days[/b][/p][p]Equivalent to running [b]3 marathons per day[/b]...[/p][p]Climbing for more than [b]12 hours per day[/b][/p][p]Burning more than [b]10,000 calories per day[/b][/p][p]For [b]The Brain Tumour Charity[/b] and [b]Parkinson’s UK[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]THE TEAM[/b][/p][p][b]Rupert Elwes[/b][/p][p]Work: Head of Private Clients at Waverton Investment Management[/p][p]Play: Golf, cycling, running, not ski touring[/p][p][b]Harry Jack[/b][/p][p]Work: Head of Pan European Equity Research at Schroders[/p][p]Play: Running, cycling, tennis, gardening[/p][p][b]Robert Sugden[/b][/p][p]Work: Founder, Director at Acumen Intelligent Consulting[/p][p]Play: Boxing, rugby, kite surfing[/p][p][b]Dominic Ward[/b][/p][p]Work: CEO at Verne Global[/p][p]Play: Cycling, rowing, swimming, cars[/p][p][url=https://www.everestinthealps.com/meet-the-team-team-sahasa/]Read more about us here[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]FUNDRAISING[/b][/p][p]Our training, travel, event costs, equipment, guides, is all self- funded so 100% of the money we raise will go directly to charity.[/p][p]We are raising funds and awareness for two charities: [b]The Brain Tumour Charity[/b] and [b]Parkinson’s UK[/b].[/p][p]Our objective is to raise over [b]£100,000[/b] through sponsorship and fundraising.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]THE BRAIN TUMOUR CHARITY[/b][/p][p]is the world's leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally.[/p][p]Dominic’s friends’ son, Alfie, died last year from a brain tumour aged only 7. Over 3 years he endured over 90 general anaesthetics, 60 sessions of radiation treatment and over 30 hours of surgery. Sadly, none of this was enough to save him.[/p][p]Brain tumours are the single biggest cancer killer of children and young adults, with 500 children diagnosed every year in the UK alone. There is no cure. Yet just 2% of cancer research funding goes to this area and very little is known about the causes, while treatment remains inadequate.[/p][p]Committed to saving and improving lives, The Brain Tumour Charity is moving further and faster to help every single person affected by a brain tumour. They are set on finding new treatments, offering the highest level of support and driving urgent change. And they are doing it right now, because they understand that when you, or someone you love, is diagnosed with a brain tumour, a cure really can't wait.[/p][p]We are proud to support the fantastic work of The Brain Tumour Charity for which 80p of every £1 raised goes towards charitable objectives, with approximately half invested in world-class research.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]PARKINSON'S UK[/b][/p][p]Parkinson’s UK drives better care, treatments and quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s.[/p][p]Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition. This means that it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time.[/p][p]Harry’s father-in-law has been living with Parkinson’s for 15 years now. Five years ago he had life changing brain surgery which prolonged his quality of life in ways we could never have imagined. With currently no cure, drugs, surgery and therapy only slow down this debilitating disease. Funding research to improve the outcomes of these treatments is essential, but their goal to find a cure remains at the forefront of their research ambitions.[/p][p]The number of people diagnosed with Parkinson's in the UK is about 145,000. But we know that more than 1 million people in the UK are affected, either by living with Parkinson’s, or as a friend, colleague, or family member of someone who is.[/p][p]We are proud to support the fantastic work of Parkinson’s UK for which 80p of every £1 raised goes towards making life better for people with Parkinson’s.[/p]
