Be part of something awesome!

Whether you are in individual interested in this project and would like to pop some pounds into the pot or a business looking to be more involved, thank you for taking the time to read on.

I am offering a huge amount of promotion, motivational talks, workshops, coaching, and outdoor experiences to businesses who will help me complete summits #6, Carstensz Pyramid, and #7, Mt Vinson, of the “7 Summits” and also help raise further awareness and funds for children’s mental health charity Place2Be and offering individuals a range of ways to get involved for your hard earned funds too.

In the last 4 years I have raised over £25,000 for this incredibly important charity whilst climbing summits #4 Everest and #5 Denali, with the help of a huge amount of businesses and individuals, and in order to maximise the fundraising and awareness I need to go big and complete the 7 summits challenge.

Having never set out to climb 'The 7' I have now successfully reached the summit of 5: 

Kilimanjaro:  October 2008
Aconcagua:   December 2011
Elbrus:             July 2015
Everest:          May 2016
Denali:            June 2017

I aim to climb Carstensz Pyramid, Indonesia (expedition costs approx £15,000) and Mount Vinson, Antarctica (expedition costs approx £40,000) by the end of 2019 to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Place2Be and have saved around £8,000 recently by selling kit, hiring out further kit, selling my old van and some personal donations.

The aim is also to become the 10th British woman to complete all 7 summits out of a total of 430 mountaineers worldwide who have also completed the challenge and more importantly, maximising the awareness and fundraising for Place2Be. 

Read on for some ideas about we can work together to promote your business, inspire your people, and support children in over 290 schools around the UK. And if you have other ideas, let's discuss these too.

Business sponsorship - What’s in it for you?

A wide range of business workshops and talks, branding on my expedition kit, branding on my Adventure Van, continuous social media tagging and mentions on my website. Please contact me on jobradshaw2010@aol.co.uk to work out an individual package to suit your business needs but to give you an example:

For £500 or more: your company logo will adorn my van for the rest of the van's life

For £500 or more: your company logo will be added to my expedition pack/s for summits #6 and #7

For £500 or more: your company logo will adorn an expedition jacket and gilet to be worn at events, during expedition travel and on expedition itself

Personal sponsorship - What's in it for you?

I'm always keen to give something back to those who put their hands in their pockets and will once again do the same. There are 2 options this time:

For £250 or more: your favourite quote will adorn my van for the rest of the van's life and your favourite photo will be added to the 7 summits banner and travel with me to Carstensz Pyramid and Mt Vinson

For £20 or more: your favourite photo will be added to the 7 summits banner and travel with me to Carstensz Pyramid and Mt Vinson

My story

A former no saying, risk averse business adviser who gradually started to say yes more and has now turned adventure into my life. I am now an Outdoor Instructor, Expedition Leader and Motivational Speaker who happens to have survived the tragic earthquake which struck Nepal in 2015 whilst on Everest and went back to reach the summit in 2016. I teach the expedition element of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award hoping to inspire our next generation of adventurers as well as leading adults and students on expeditions world wide.

I regularly give business talks on resilience and leadership to corporates and tell my story of challenge and change to groups, schools and at business networking events.  

Please head to my website to find out more!
