Kevin Hesketh aims to raise £500.00 for Rose Blossom Trust, by taking part in a 15 day Trek to Everest Base Camp from the 24th April 2018 until the 12th May 2018.
Message from Kevin:
“Having climbed Kilimanjaro in February 2016 and Mount Toubkal in October 2016 for the Rose Blossom Trust, that’s Africa and North Africa’s highest mountains off the list!
On the 24th April 2018, Team Members Kate Whitehouse, Ros Gordon and Stephen Pendergast will join me as I head to Kathmandu and then Lukla (The most dangerous airport in the world!) to attempt my biggest challenge yet for the charity.
Starting with a 9 day Trek through the Himalayan Valley, we will eventually arrive in Everest Base Camp at 17,700 feet. After a night in BC with the Everest expedition teams, we will attempt to summit Kala Patthar at 18,514 feet. We then have a further 5 day trek out the valley, and the dreaded flight from Lukla to Kathmandu!
Having struck up a great friendship with Mark & Nat, it’s yet again an honour to be allowed to raise money for the Rose Blossom Trust and in memory of Darcie Rose.
Dravet Syndrome, also known as Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy (SMEI), which is a very rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy, affecting only 1 in 40,000 people. Children with Dravet syndrome do not outgrow this condition and it affects every aspect of their daily lives. Unless a cure or better treatments for Dravet syndrome and related epilepsies are found, individuals with these disorders face a diminished quality of life. Current treatment options are extremely limited and the prognosis for these children is poor.
Please support me in my third ‘High Altitude Mountaineering’ attempt for such a worthwhile charity and wonderful family.
Thank you xx ”
