This February saw CITCNepal’s first ‘Feverest challenge’, a brainchild of CITC supporter Oliver Middleton. The idea was to run/walk or cycle the height of Everest 8.8km to support children’s education in Rural Nepal.
Olly decided to take on a personal challenge to run 250km in February, which is the equivalent to the height of Everest every day! The stats have been collated and Olly has covered the full 250km in under 19 hours.
Well done also to Shayne Adams who, inspired by Olly also took on the challenge to run 250km and has managed to cover an incredible 273km during February which is the equivalent of 31 times the height of Everest!
Olly and Shayne have battled the cold weather as well as illness and aches and pains in their determined efforts to help young Nepalese children to get an education and have the opportunity to fulfil their learning potential.
Thank you to everyone who completed their own 8.8km Feverest challenges and to those who donated and supported the cause.
It was great to see so many people getting involved, sharing their photos and spreading the word using the hastag #Feverest.
So far the fundraising figure has reached nearly £3000 which is fantastic.
All money raised will directly benefit children in some of the most underprivileged parts of Nepal.
