Thanks for visiting our JustGiving page.

On: 9th November 2019 a team of 10 Firefighters from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service will trek to above Everest Base Camp in Nepal.

Everest Base Camp is: 17,600ft above sea level, the team will trek above this to Kalapathar which is:18,208ft.

At this height there is less than 50% oxygen and the temperature can drop as low as: -37'c.

We will follow in the footsteps of many famous climbers and explorers such as: Sir Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay and George Mallory.

This will be our hardest challenge yet, high altitude will pose the team additional challenges including: Sickness, confusion, dehydration and fatigue.

The trek will take us 12 days, walking an average of 9hrs each day.

All money raised is for a charity close to our hearts: 

The Firefighters Charity

Mental health problems In the fire service has risen by a 1/3 in the last 6 years. 85% of Fire and Rescue personnel have experienced stress and poor mental health. Fire service personnel are more likely to experience mental health problems than the general workforce. This can affect their performance, relationships and physical health. We have seen lots of good friends and colleagues that have suffered and are currently suffering from mental health problems such as: PTSD, depression and anxiety.

The money raised will help provide psychological support to
firefighters following traumatic life and death incidents.

Many thanks,  The Team X
