This year at work we set ourselves a target to raise money throughout the year for one particular charity, we bounced a few charity names around but in the end we decided we were going to raise money for:-
As a group we suggested that we should look into doing a main fund raising event half way through the year with smaller events being held throughout the year.
My manager then suggested that we aim 'high' with our fund raising ideas but I didn't think that she actually meant 'high' as in up a mountain high. Gulp
So once the idea of walking up a mountain had set in (although honestly its still setting in) we then had to decide on a date for this epic adventure, we finally decided on Saturday 30th August 2014.
We had not yet decided on which mountain mountain we we're going to walk up, my colleague put forward the idea ( jokingly I hope ) we walk up Mount Everest, but as this was our first walk we decided to down scale ( thankfully by a long way ) and we decided to have a crack at Mount Snowdon.
Some of you out there will read this and think 'that's easy that', and for you it might be, but for me on the other hand its going to be a massive challenge as I'm unfit. The only walking I do is from my front door to my car and from my car to my shop, which is in total about 40 paces lol.
Although this is going to be a massive challenge I intend to put in 100% into this challenge and hopefully raise as much money as I/we can.
