After 18 months of planning, training, and fundraising, Kirsty and Vanessa set off for Heathrow airport this afternoon, bound for Mount Kilimanjaro. Ahead of them lies a climb of over 19,000ft, with the aim of hitting the summit on Sunday 22nd October. Asked why she wanted to climb Kilimanjaro, Vanessa commented today, “People have been so generous towards us since Fit For Felix was launched, that I feel it is time for me to do something extraordinary too. This adventure will not only be a massive personal challenge for us both, it will also ensure that fundraising for the causes supported by Fit For Felix can continue.”
This is what Fit For Felix is all about – doing something different, getting fit, and supporting great causes. Help Kirsty and Vanessa reach their goals by supporting their JustGiving page, or leave a message for them on our Facebook page.
