Tim & Rob Climb Snowdon for Charity
My best buddy Rob (who happens to be my brother-in-law) and I are going to climb to the summit of Snowdon in Wales to raise money for Help For Heroes. We are aiming to raise £1 each for every metre we climb. Snowdon has an elevation of 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) and the planned route is about 8 miles long.
We will be completing our challenge on Saturday 20th March 2010 regardless of weather conditions (except if the weather is so bad as to be life threatening).
Please help support our troops by making a donation online through organiser BMyCharity.com. To donate safely online please visit our fund-raising page.
About Help For Heroes
Our chosen charity is Help For Heroes, a charity formed to help those who have been wounded in Britain's current conflicts.
"What is H4H all about? It's about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It's about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It's about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It is about Ben, it's about Steven and Andy and Mark, it's about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes."
Tim: As some of you may already know, I was involved in a serious high-speed car crash in which I suffered multiple broken bones, including my knee, and muscular damage to my hips, legs, knees and ankle. This is going to be a challenging hike for me, but I'm determined to make it to the top!
Rob: I'm doing this because I can, and to raise money for Help For Heroes.
We both have family connections to the armed forces, and we both want to help support our troops.
