Climbing Kili for the MS Trust
As most of you out there in MediaLand already know, we at Captify don’t do things by halves. All it takes is one big idea, and all of a sudden, our amazing team spring into action to make it happen!
As one of the initiatives of our Futures Board; the idea of a mountain climb in aid of charity was proposed – but not just any old hill! We chose the highest free-standing mountain in the world; Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania!
On the 10th of March 2018, fourteen keen Captifiers will touch down in Africa to tackle 5 days, 50 miles, 19,341 feet and 47 hours of trekking through rainforest, alpine desert and arctic conditions, all to raise much needed funds for The MS Trust, a charity that is so very close to our hearts here at Captify.
The MS Trust is an incredible organisation that is dedicated to finding ways to prevent, cure and repair damage caused by this silent yet horrifically debilitating condition which affects 1 in 600 people in the UK alone. Find out all about the amazing work they do here.
We’ve booked our flights, gotten our jabs and are all hitting the hills and the treadmills in order to prepare for this challenge of a lifetime, and now we need your help! As this trip is self-funded by each traveller, all funds raised via our Virgin Money Giving page go straight to The MS Trust.
PLEASE DONATE! http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayCharityCampaignPage.action?charityCampaignUrl=captify
Quite literally every little helps the work that The MS Trust do, so be it a penny or a pound, please do give whatever you can.
Watch this space for all of our highs and lows as we prepare for this challenge of a lifetime!
