Celebrate International Women’s Day by Climbing a Hill!
Last October I led a fundraising trek to Everest Base Camp to raise money for a wonderful charity called Women for Women International www.womenforwomen.org.uk. The wonderful women who came with me raised over £100,000. Our high point there was the summit of a mountain called Kala Pattar, which is 18,150 feet – and felt like it! We think that a great way to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March would be to climb another mountain. This would be a way of empathizing with and showing support for women all over the world who are climbing mountains every day of their lives, in the daily struggle to not only stay alive but to support their families too. We are planning on climbing a much smaller mountain this time though! We are going to climb Pen y Ghent in the Yorkshire Dales, which is one of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. It takes about 4 hours up and down. The starting point is Horton-in-Ribblesdale. We will meet in the car park there at 10.30 a.m. We would love to have as many people join us as possible, so please come! If you are interested please email me email@example.com. Hope to see you there!
