I am one of the crazy fools who successfully attempted to reach the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro in August 2016 while raising money for Tommy’s!
One the best, most exhilarating, trying and hardest challenges I have ever done…but also the most rewarding. I would thoroughly recommended climbing Kilimanjaro to anyone thinking of doing it!
I kept some notes from my experience and have posted them to the updates section of my site, please spare a few minutes to have of them, if only to chuckle and my appalling writing abilities.
Why “Crutches to Kili“?
It’s a play on the phrase and exercise regime ‘Couch to 5K’. It’s also a reference to me ending up on crutches after snapping my Achilles tendon back in October 2015 and my aim of reaching the summit in August 2016.
Find out more information about the trek, why I’m doing it, updates on my progress, what Tommy’s is and other stuff by looking around the site. Oh, and please don’t forget to Like, Share, Tweet and spread the ‘word’ along with maybe donating a couple of quid?!
