The Challenge
I aim to climb the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in August 2018. I will also be cycling the length of the UK in 9 days on April 7th! 
The Cause
I will be taking part in this challenge in order to raise money for Dig Deep, a foundation in Kenya, that helps poverty stricken communities by giving them access to clean water. 8 out of 10 people do not have access to clean water in these communities, but since Dig Deep started up 10 years ago they have built taps and toilets serving 27,000 people and aim to double this in the next 3 years.
My Pledge
I must raise a minimum of £2990 to take part in this challenge. This goes directly to improving the lives of thousands of Kenyans. Just £50 can change the lives of three children by providing them with clean drinking water.
Other Events
I will be taking part in many fundraising events throughout the year in order to achieve this target including a 900 mile cycle from Lands End to John O' Groats.
Any contributions made will be deeply appreciated and will really make a difference to many lives.

Make a Change: Climb Kili for Clean Water 2018

Kilimanjaro is one of the toughest treks in the
world. The tallest free standing mountain on the planet stands at 5,895m. Our fundraisers are undertaking this mammoth challenge to raise money for water and sanitation projects in Kenya. 10 million Kenyans lack access to safe water, held back by disease and disrupted education. By sponsoring a climber today you can break the needless cycle of poverty.
