I’m 26 and crazy…

hiking la rocca cefalu sicily

I turned 26 today and have taken it surprisingly well. Although, I do appear to have temporarily taken leave of my senses and decided to take on the ridiculous task of hiking the three tallest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in 24hrs on 5th July. This is an expedition with my new company, the Walkabout Foundation. We raise money for research into finding a cure for paralysis as well as to donate wheelchairs to people in need across the world. We are currently working on projects in Haiti as well as other countries in Latin America and Africa. So whilst I’m working out how to train and get through this extravaganza, please take a second to read about the trip below.

The intinerary for the trip is below, but you can find more about it here.

Fly to Glasgow, Scotland early Friday
– 3 hour journey to Fort William
– 24hrs begins: 6 hour ascent and descent of Ben Nevis
– 6 hour overnight drive to Lake District, England
– 4.5 hour ascent and descent of Scafell Pike
– 5 hour drive to Snowdon, Wales
– 2.5 hour ascent to summit of Snowdon where you will finish the challenge – 24hrs complete
– 1.5 hour descent to Llanberis and collapse at hotel, I’m sure.
Train back to London on Sunday morning.

Wanna sponsor me as birthday present?

I’d really appreciate anything that you can do to help! You can donate to the cause here… and follow my progress on Twitter and Facebook nearer the time.
