I'm aiming to complete the last 2 of the 7 summits by the end of this year and help celebrate Place2Be's 25th anniversary of doing amazing work within around 300 schools across the UK. I hope to become one of only a handful of British women to complete this challenge, out of around 450 climbers worldwide as well as taking Place2Be to places they have never been!
With £25,000 for already raised for Place2Be through my climbs on Everest in 2015/2016 and Denali in 2017, I set up 'Jo's Mighty 90' back in April of this year with the aim to raise £90,000 to be split 60/40 with Place2Be and the expedition costs of the final of the 7 summits, Vinson in Antartica.
Having been sponsored for summits #4 (Everest) and #5 (Denali), I am self funding summit #6 (Carstensz Pyramid) which I leave for on 29th September, but to complete the 7 and raise a huge amount for Place2Be I am seeking funding for the last one, #7, Vinson in Antarctica.
How? There are 4 levels of support on offer:
Platinum - donation of £1000+
Gold - donation of £500+
Silver - donation of £250+
Bronze - donation of £20+
Unfortunately I cannot give out spot prizes as I had planned, it’s against HMRC rules, however everyone who donates will get a photo spot on the 7 summits banner and come with me to #6 and #7 and I will work out how to give back outside of the fundraising!
The 7 summits banner - for a donation of £20 or more, you could come to Vinson in Antarctica from the comfort of your own armchair! Simply pop in your donation, take a selfie on your phone or choose a clear photo and email it to me in a large file size and resolution to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do the rest!
* the banner for Carstensz Pyramid is now complete however I will be adding panels top and bottom for Vinson where photos will need to be with me by 5pm Friday 6th December *
