I'm climbing all Snowdon's 14 peaks in under 24h for Sailors’ Society because worse things happen at sea (and we rarely notice)

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I've jog/walked 50k on a couple of occasions and thought the Welsh 3000s would be an interesting 'next step'. So I signed up. Back in May I did 50k along Jurassic Coast - oh my that was tough and it's become increasingly clear that the Welsh 3000s will be even harder - described as 'brutal'. I've begun training in earnest, 6 days a week - hill running, circuits and scrambling up and down steep slopes. What fun! 

Few of us think about what it takes to live the lives we lead. My super, new mountain jacket, for instance, was made in China, came to me courtesy of shipping. Sailors on those ships often have to endure much more than I will throughout my training for and participation in this brutal event. 

I want to help The Sailors Society with the marvellous work they do supporting sailors' families (often left at home in deprived circumstances); providing support for sailors in port and at sea looking after their spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and social wellbeing.

Please consider making a donation to give me strength in this bonkers endeavour and to make a difference to the lives of those whose invisible efforts support our privileged lifestyles. Thank you.
