Charity Hike for Breast Cancer

about 3 years ago • Community Manager

 

Please support Dubai Marina Resident SALLY ANN GHAI who is climbing Kilimanjaro to raise funds for the research of Breakthrough Breast Cancer

...who work to save lives through improving early diagnosis, developing new treatments and preventing all types of breast cancer.

 

The charity funds 25% of the UK’s research into breast cancer, although the findings are to the benefit of women throughout the world. 270 scientists working on clinical trials have made significant scientific and genetic breakthroughs over the last 15 years, for the benefit of mothers, sisters and daughters around the world, by preventing them dying from breast cancer.

 

A message from Sally Ann:

Without the work of this charity, women worldwide would have less access to effective and life-saving treatment.

It’s a charity very close to my heart as my mother has survived breast cancer twice and I know many people - as I’m sure we all do - whose lives and loved ones have been touched by breast cancer in some way.

Every woman is a mother, a daughter, a friend, a wife or a sister to someone.

That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate my Kilimanjaro climb to raising money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer - with an ambitious target of 10,000 GBP or 62,000 AED. Carrying the responsibility to my charity and the accountability to my sponsors will keep me climbing long after my legs have given up!

It’s the time of year when thoughts naturally turn to giving, and maybe making a significant donation to a specific charity. I hope you will find this challenge a worthy cause; I can assure you I am training hard with stair climbing, circuit training - wearing an altitude training mask - weekly hikes (in 42 degree heat!), and lots of leg work! Your donation is so valuable, it’s important I make it to the top! Please donate. It’s very easy to donate through the Just Giving page online https://www.justgiving.com/Sally-Ann-Ghai/  and everything is regulated and secure so you can be sure your donation will go directly to the charity.

 

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and I’m climbing the hardest trail - the Machame – 6 days up, one down between 11th – 19th July, sleeping in tents (no huts for me this is not Comic Relief) and around 50 hours of hard trekking. It’s 5,898m high (3.66 miles) and the climb is around 60km (37 miles). The push for the summit (climbing at night by moonlight) is in temperatures of -7F to -29F in extreme altitude - so it’s no joke!!

 

I look forward to updating you in a month with my success!!

 

Thank you,

Sally Ann
