Read about our fundraiser’s perilous descent of Everest

We are delighted to announce that our truly dedicated fundraiser Rory McHugh safely reached the summit of Everest. He had a very perilous journey back to base camp and we are even more pleased that this was also safely completed.

As I emerged over the final ridge line, which gave sight to the summit and grouping of prayer flags, my eyes welled up a little. This was the culmination of two months in the Himalaya and of nearly six months of prep and training. It felt great.
