Lower Sixth student Simon Riley is currently in the final stages of training and preparation as he looks ahead to tackling Mount Kilimanjaro in early February.
Simon’s self-funded trip to the highest point in Africa is all in aid of Cancer Research UK. With 79% of Simon’s £3000 target already reached, Simon is hopeful that he can hit 100% before he departs.
On his Just Giving page, Simon writes:
“I want to help the people who are putting the effort in to try and cure this awful disease. I know some people who have been affected by cancer, some suffering the worst outcome of all. I want to help make sure that cancer doesn’t do any more damage to my friends, family and anyone else. Instead I want to keep positivity high about trying to find a cancer cure.”
