Story

On the 25th August I leave for India to climb Stok Kangri, a mighty 6000m + peak in the Himalayas. Having had previous climbing experience in the Himalayas I can say without hesitation it's one of the most brutal environments on earth. To even get to the mountain I will be travelling one of the most dangerous roads in the world. For a bottom-clenching watch just copy and paste this link into Youtube! https://youtu.be/jPyYGw9Jn6w
On the mountain I'll be testing my body to every limit I have mentally and physically and during those times when all I want to do is turn around I'll keep going for a very good reason...

John Winskill's life has been turned upside down. A an ex military man who fights his own battles with PTSD is now being tested in what I can only imagine to be hell on earth for him, his wife and his two young children.

Five years ago John was in Peru raising money for military charities. A car shunted his landrover into oncoming traffic injuring him badly and killing two people in the crash. John was treated in hospital and returned home. 5 years later and with no previous warning pf any ongoing case, two policeman delivered the crushing news that Peru have now decided to expedite him back and charge him. Despite video tape evidence, witness statements and photographic evidence proving John was not to blame, Peru have not permitted John's account to be questioned nor considered the evidence proving him innocent prior to a trial. The charity John was raising for do not have the insurance to pay the legal fees which are estimated to be up to £250,000. John and his family must now find these funds themselves to give him his defence case for trial.

I cannot think of a better reason to keep putting one foot in front of the other than to raise awareness and as much help as possible to give John the chance to prove his innocence and restore some peace to their lives
