CaveFit Kilimanjaro (Self Funded) Challenge 2019

A team from CaveFit at The Edinburgh Grand will climb Kilimanjaro to raise money for the Royal Marines Charity.

The eight taking part are all hard core members of the gym that is based at Waterfront & The Edinburgh Grand. The six men and two women span an age range from their mid-30s to their early 50s. 

Thier aim is to raise £15,000 for the RM charity which provides lifelong physical and emotional support for regulars and reserves and their families.

Pete Oakden, the founder of CaveFit will lead the team. He is himself a former Royal Marine who has served in both Afghanistan and Iraq. He explained the purpose of the charity mission. He said:

“As a gym CaveFit has built up a strong community of people that actively support each other. We all work hard at our fitness and know how sport can help us achieve more than we ever knew we could. Climbing Kilimanjaro will be a challenge, but we are determined that the whole team will reach the summit.

“Each year we chose a charity that means something to our members and in the past we have raised money for Macmillan, CCLASP, Poppy Scotland amongst others. Every year too we set out to beat the previous year’s fundraising total, so this year the aim is to exceed £14,000.”

The CaveFit Kilimanjaro team of Dougie Dingwall, Peter Oakden (CaveFit Founder), Helen Bateson, Ian Rogers, Ruth Bradley, Richard Bradley and Andy Curry, flies out to Tanzania on 25 October. Donations can be made via Just Giving page.Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
