Megan's Mountain Challenge

Fundraising for Gaddesden Place Riding for the Disabled Centre

raised by 56 supporters

Gaddesden Place Riding for the Disabled Centre

We provide therapeutic pony riding lessons to improve the lives of disabled people

Charity Registration No. 1140330


The challenge: To get my 9 year old daughter to the top of Snowdon without reverting to the train. For those that do not know Megan she was born with a syndrome called CDLS which severely affects mental and physical development. She does not yet walk, talk or eat properly. This means that Dad (with the aid of a Martin, Lee, Carolyn, Lucy and Rosie) will be looking to get her to the summit in her buggy and her backpack carrier.

The Charity: The Gaddesden RDA who are dedicated to teaching disabled people to ride. Megan has been going for over a year now and thoroughly enjoys her time with Kiwi and all the lovely volunteers.  It is helping her with her balance and core strength.

The facts: the top of Snowdon is 1085m (3,560 feet) high, Megan whilst small for her age weighs in at 20kg, I am a (slightly) overweight and (very) unfit 46 years old.

When: we will be looking to complete the climb at some point in Sept/ Oct 2012 at the first opportunity that the weather and Megan’s mood allows, as an absolute last resort I will do the climb carrying the equivalent weight and with a recording of Megan’s ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaaahs’ ringing in my ears.
