WE ALL MADE IT to Base Camp Mount Everest!!! Photos and news will be updated on our main site as soon as we get clean and sleep for a week!!! Thanks folks - Liz and the Pink Coffin Trekkers x
Welcome to the Pink Coffin Trek Fundraising Page. For trekking team, pics, news and more see: www.pinkcoffin.co.uk
We kept our promise to Chris and set off earlier this month to the foothills of Everest to raise money for the devastating illness, motor neurone disease, that took less than one year to take Chris's life.
Chris was passionate about so many things. Living life to the full, scuba diving and in his last months raising awareness and funds for the MND Association. When he saw this black and white photo of our wedding and the MND thumbprint shadow on his back he was even more determined that this was his last mission in life! We intend to continue with his determination!
Chris's main fundraising page has already reached over £35,000 is going to be boosted by almost twice our original goal! Check out his permanent justgiving site at www.justgiving.com/diverchris
