Every year, hundreds of people go to Nepal and use Everest to raise funds for charities outside of Nepal, oblivious to the fact that Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world.
As part of our 8848 APPEAL - Kidasha, a UK-registered charity, is turning the tables and organising an ‘Everest’ challenge outside of Nepal, to raise funds to support some of Nepal’s forgotten children, and is looking for people to join a unique team challenge in the spectacular French Alps on the weekend of 14th September 2013.
Get a team of colleagues, family or friends together and take part in a vertical challenge like no other: cycle, run or walk the height of Everest in a day, a vertical ascent of 8,848m, by completing a combined total of 11.5 ascents of one of the famous legs of the Tour de France - from the French alpine town of Morzine to the ski station of Avoriaz - a vertical ascent of 780m for which the current record for the fastest ascent is 33 minutes (set by Bernard Hinault in the 1986 Tour de France).
