In April 2020, I will be part of a group flying from Kathmandhu to Lukla to begin our ascent towards Everest base camp.
This is a personal challenge that I’ve thought about for a number of years, so now that I’ve committed, I’ve decided to give something back whilst being lucky enough to partake in such an experience.
I’ve been following the story of a young boy called Charlie within my local community who’s father I have known for a number of years.
At the age of 8, Charlie was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) - a genetic disorder characterised by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness- there is currently no cure. I have copied a link below - please take 5 minutes of your time to read through and gain a level of understanding.
Charlie’s parents are in the process of planning for his future which means a power wheelchair and in turn, a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
With your help, I have decided that any donations I receive will go in their entirety to Charlie’s family to help fund the vehicle.
I have set my target at $5634 - a $1 for every metre above sea level when I hopefully reach my destination. Any amount received, big or small will be massively appreciated by all.
Please share away and help raise not only funds, but awareness for DMD.
