The Cause


On 16 April I am setting out on a journey to climb all the Graham Mountains in Scotland. I am seeking support to help me do this. A bit apprehensive at the moment but setting a date and getting it out there makes it feel real and focusses my mind.  In 2005 I climbed all the Munros walking in between and sea kayaking out to the islands. In 2014 I followed this up with a continual journey of all the Corbetts sailing, cycling and backpacking in between.  This time I will be going with an emphasis on minimum carbon footprint, walking and cycling in between and using the ferries and maybe the odd kayak to reach the 7 islands. The body is older and a bit more worn out after dealing with three different cancer diagnosis over the past 12 years! I don't want to shy away from this, it has changed my life and made somethings more difficult but there is strength in dealing with life's knocks and if that helps one more person get out there then of course its worth it. A sense of humour and a little stubborness can go a long way........ Once I step foot out the door  life will become very simple but this planning  is a bit more  difficult and I appreciate all the support.

 All funds raised will help to support me throughout this  journey which will take around 4 months. As far as I know this has not been done before.  I will be fundraising for my chosen charity which will be announced at the beginning of my journey and any excess funds will be transferred to this.

There is a free entry to this prize draw as per the terms and conditions. Please remember though that the draw is first and foremost to support me throughout this project.
