Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit the Challenge Andy donation page.

This March I shall be travelling to Borneo to climb the summit of Mount Kinabalu, the highest point in Malaysia (4095m/13435ft). I am doing this to raise funds for the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust - a charity founded to increase awareness of the symptoms and dangers of depression. 

I am participating as part of Challenge Borneo, a grass roots event founded and organised by my friend Lukas. Because we've cut out the middle man and organised the trip independently, every penny you donate will go to support the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.

The team will endure the humidity, mosquitoes, and leeches of the Borneo jungle, and the bare faced rock, freezing temperatures, and thin altitude air of Mount Kinabalu, before hiking and cycling our way back to the coast.

The trek will be physically strenuous and at times a real test of our will power (especially at 2:30AM for out climb to the summit), but a challenge worth while to make a real difference to the lives of young people suffering from depression.

I hope you will support me in raising money for this very worthy cause.

Andy
