Story

I am climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with my Dad in October to raise money in memory of my beautiful sister Bella who died unexpectedly on Boxing Day. As many of you will know, Bella suffered from a form of Muscular Dystrophy and as life became harder for her we were lucky to receive help and support from Noah's Ark Children's hospice. We enjoyed trying to push Bella up as many hills and mountains as possible and although she is no longer here, we decided to take up this challenge to help others like Bella.

Kilimanjaro will be the first of the seven summits (the highest peak on each continent) that I will attempt to climb. Despite Bella's physical limitations she conquered every challenge presented to her and by attempting to reach the highest points on each continent I hope I will carry a little bit of Bella's short, wonderful and awe-inspiring life with me. 

Thank you 

From Ben Northam
