Weʼve raised £675 to Reach the summits of the highest mountains in each of the worlds 7 continents.
- Funded on Sunday, 9th December 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Disturbingly, the number of troops that suffer from conditions such as PTSD has nearly doubled in the past ten years. Even more distressing is that suicide is rife within the Veterans community.
Suicide is the leading cause of death facing our troops, surpassing being killed in active combat.
It is therfore our objective to scale 7 of the world’s challenging peaks in order to raise awareness for the mental health of British Veterans as well as much needed funds for these charities. Ex service personnel should have the sufficient resources available to them as if they were still in service. This must change.
Myself and Danilea Kroulikova, my partner will be doing these summits together, Daniela will be the first czech female to complete this challenge if succesful.
Prior to an attempt to Summit Mount Everest, mountaineering experience is required on Aconcagua 6962M which is in South America, Argentina. It is tge second highest of the seven summits and has been nick named the ‘mountain of death’ even at 5000 metres temperatures can hit lows of -35. The Aconcagua expedition will be attempted December 2018, immediately followed by the Mt Everest expedition in April 2019.
People climb mountains for a variety of different reasons, for myself the transition into civilian life has been extremely tough, extreme highs and cataclysmic lows. The problem is apparent for many service leavers and still there is no government led initiatives to help with the transition into civilian life. There are many amazing charities out there that help ex military personnel when they need it the most. These charities need financial support.
Following aspirations for a summit attempt of Mount Everest I hope to document my experience, my struggles and my hardships and gain coverage for other veterans who can relate to my journey.
Thank you to those who have taken the time out to donate already and to those who have given me guidance and support it’s amazing!
Please email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org for the expedition business sponsorship proposal.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and making this dream one day become a reality.

Thank you so much guys for helping get the ball rolling. It’s almost time for me to start my first expedition! If it wasn’t for your support I wouldn’t be in the situation where Everest is actually in sight! Thank you! To that end I’ll be closing the crowd funding page and opening a new page just for my charities as this is all for veterans mental health awareness. Thank you! Sam Deen
