About Sydney

On the 14th August I will be attempting to climb the biggest mountain in all of Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro. Am I crazy? Quite possibly…

At 19,334 feet above sea level and the fourth highest free standing mountain in the world, this will be no mean feat. I will be battling extreme temperatures, altitude sickness, fatigue, blisters, farting (yes farting! A major side effect of adjusting to altitude) and of course, those pesky mosquitoes. But I shall be doing it all with a smile on my face and two of the best pals a girl could ask for, Kate and Carina.

So what’s all this in aid of? I am hoping to raise £1,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign. The Royal Marsden Hospital treats 40,000 patients every year and is internationally renowned for its ground-breaking work in patient care, researching new drug therapies and treatment.

I will be using this blog to track my fundraising progress as well as share my thoughts, photos and videos over the course of this epic journey.
