Climbing Everest again for Moving Mountains!
Mountainviewers, please have a look at this from Gavin Bate, Everest expedition leader and our guest speaker at the recent WAI Winter Talks meet in Dublin.

Climbing Everest again for Moving Mountains!

Hi, I'm heading back to the Big E again, to climb to the summit and hopefully raise more money for Moving Mountains. There are definitely easier ways to fundraise, but my last climbs have taken the charity I started literally to new heights! 'MM' is now a big concern with a wide remit covering work in Nepal, Kenya and Borneo, and with new projects starting each year.

Please have a look at my snazzy new website My Everest Challenge; I am carrying a GPS tracking unit that will feed positions to a 3D image of Everest, which allows you to 'fly' in and out of the mountain with your mouse. I hope you'll follow me virtually on the trip!

I've also got updates going to my Facebook and Twitter pages. Plus I've got my fundraising page on Justgiving - please do consider donating a little to MM as I go up the mountain, and thank you if you can support the charity. My target is £250,000, and I've already raised £90,000 from the last Everest trip in 2009.

Thank you!

Gavin
