Stage 3 - Record Hunting - 25 Peaks in 24 Hours & World Record Attempts
Unfortunately there is a long and frequent history of cancer on both sides of my family and so I've always tried to do a lot of fund raising for Cancer Research, taking part in various sponsored events, including several marathons.
However last year there was another case that was very close to home which caused me to significantly increase and focus my efforts.
Further to this my girlfriend Hannah was hit by a drunk-driver while walking home one night and there was nothing that doctors could do. I realise I am biased but as gorgeous as Hannah was, to me the truly inspirational thing about her was how beautiful a person she was on the inside. Incredibly friendly, caring and generous and always going out of her way to help others, I honestly didn't know a single person who had a bad word to say about her and I count myself lucky to have also been able to call her my best friend.
Fighting cancer was a cause very close to her heart, and something she devoted a huge amount of time and effort to and I guess I'm also still trying to make her proud and smile that lovely smile as she looks down from above.
The Challenges In Detail
Stage 1 - The Run
In April of 2009 I ran more than 350 miles in 14 days to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
- 5th April: Run the Paris Marathon
- 6th - 17th April: Run 300 miles from Paris to London
- 26th April: Run the London Marathon
However, following a family bereavement over the summer and a friend receiving a set-back in their fight against cancer, together with a desire to do more to help fight the disease I decided to extend the paris2london project.
Stage 2 – The Climb
In the summer of 2010 I climbed two mountains in two different continents in just 3 week. First I successfully scaled Mt Damavand (5,610m) in Iran before travelling to Tanzania to conquer Mt Kilimanjaro (5,892m) – a combined height of over 11,500 meters (or over 2,500m more than Mt Everest).
Stage 3 - 25 Peak Challenge & Record Hunting
As I'm still fulfilling my pledge to pay all expenses and ensure every penny donated goes directly to help beating cancer I have decided Stage 3 will consist of 5 shorter, but still ambitious UK based challenges rather than a 2-3 week project abroad.
i) 25 Peak Challenge - I will start by climbing 25 of the tallest peaks in the Lake District - including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. This is normally done over 2 days but I'll be attempting to conquer all 25 peaks in under 24 hours and unlike the more popular 3 Peaks Challenge, the entire route is on foot with no driving between peaks or resting.
Record Hunting: I'll announce more details on each challenge as I complete the previous one but the plan is to attempt to break 3 World Records and complete a 24-Hour Triathlon over the next 12 months.
If you would be kind enough to sponsor me I would be incredibly grateful.
Help Spread The Word
I'd be very grateful if you could forward the details to anybody or business who you think may be interested in supporting the challenge!
It may sound like a cliche but even the smallest amounts really can make a difference so please, please give sponsor me if you can!
