Story

So Gail and Matt are going to climb the highest point in Morocco and we don't want to do it nice and easy... Oh no, we are going to summit and back down in 18 hours.  It is going to be hard going but the opportunity to do this trek for SportsAid came along and we couldn't resist.  

The challenge now is to raise the money needed for SportsAid.  They give grants to young athletes who don't get any funding to keep them in the sport and without this, they may have to give up the sport and the thing they love the most.  With it being Olympic year as well, it is important to highlight what sport does for young people, not only to achieve dreams and aspirations, but also the attributes for later life and bringing communities together.  Both of us believe in the power of sport, health and wellbeing and we want the money raised to keep those youngsters in sport and to ease the financial burden.

Thank you for your support!!!  Let's do this!!
