My story

[p]On the 29th May this year, I will be standing at the start line of the Worlds Highest Marathon..... the Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon. [/p][p]The starting point of this gruelling 26.2 mile race is at a lung-stifling altitude of 5365m above sea level. The race, which runs on 29th May each year to commemorate the first Everest ascent by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, begins at Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu icefall, and descends through Gorak Shep towards the finish line at Namche Bazar (3,540m). [/p][p]I will be supporting two fantastic charities, so I'd be very grateful if you could spare any pennies (or pounds) in support. [/p][p] [/p][p][b]Walking With The Wounded[/b], offers assistance to those vulnerable veterans who have been physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged by their service in the forces and assist them in sustaining their independence through new sustainable careers outside of the military. This includes providing support to homeless veterans and veterans in the Criminal Justice System. The outcome? Sustainable employment, and independence for them and their families.[/p][p][b]Chance for Nepal[/b], works closely with established and trusted organisations, schools & hospitals in Nepal to guarantee aid & support to those families in need and to offer education and training opportunities. Despite being home to the World’s highest mountain, Nepal is one of the most poorest and often overlooked countries in the world.On 25 April 2015, 9,000 people were killed and over 23,000 injured when an earthquake of a magnitude of 7.8 hit Nepal. Flattening houses and villages it left hundreds of thousands of the people of Nepal homeless. Chance for Nepal were able to bring help support and supplies to remote hard-to-reach villages. In post-earthquake Nepal, the charity’s vital work continues to rebuild lives.[/p][p] [/p]
