'Rachy's Ben Nevis Trek' Fundraising Page
I am trekking up Ben Nevis in July to raise awareness of mental health & raise money for a local charity. This is my fundraising page!
Raising money for
Western Isles Association for Mental Health
Donations accepted until 02-10-2016
My name is Rachael and I have recently been affected by anxiety and depression. Both are extremely common but so misunderstood. A lot of people think that anxiety is just worrying too much about stuff and depression is just being lazy and sad over nothing but that is absolutely not the case. Thankfully I am on the mend now and I decided that I wanted to do something to raise awareness on these issues and at the same time raise money for a local mental health charity - Western Isles Association for Mental Health. Although I never used the charity myself, I know several people who do and the work they do to help and support people is just amazing.
Rachy's Ben Nevis Trek
In July I will be trekking to the summit of Ben Nevis, which is the highest mountain in the whole of the British Isles. The summit is 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level! It should take approx. 3.5 - 4.5 hours to reach the top and then 2.5 - 3.5 hours to get back to the bottom. Obviously that is just an estimation and it will depend on things like the weather conditions on the day and my level of fitness. It will be a real challenge for me as I have never done anything like this before. I will be doing plenty of walking, exercise and training between now and then. All donations will be gratefully received, no matter how small. I just hope to be able to reach my target :)
