Story

Two CNs. Two mighty combatants. One epic battle. Only one CN will emerge victorious - which will it be?

On October 5th I'll be heading up the CN Tower in Toronto, one of the tallest buildings in the world, to walk horizontally around the edge of the top. Not just walk. Hang from the edge. Swing from the edge. Most likely be sick from the edge. To raise money for the incredible hospice that helped us nurse my brother through the end stages of terminal brain cancer. 

As any friend/family member will attest, I'm terrified of heights. TERRIFIED. Usually a lot of whimpering and closed eyes and 'hold my hand, hold my hand!'. But if my brother, Jonathan, could go through four craniotomies and a raft of painful, exhausting, vile treatments with courage and gallows humour then I can bloody well get over my vertigo. 

Everyone who contributes is entitled to point and laugh at the videos/photos that ensue. To get an idea of how high up it is, follow the links.

Thank you so, so much x
