We wish Paul all the best in his endeavours and look forward to keeping you updated with his preparations and progress.
About Cancer Research Wales
- There has never been a greater need for research. Every 30 minutes, someone in Wales is diagnosed with cancer, and each week 171 families in Wales lose a loved one to cancer.
- Although survival rates are improving, nearly 9,000 lives are lost annually here in Wales.
- There are currently 130,000 people living with cancer in Wales. This figure could nearly fill the Principality Stadium, twice. This figure is expected to nearly double by 2030.
- Over the past few months, like many charities, Cancer Research Wales has had to adapt quickly to this crisis, as the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is being felt across the World.
- Today’s research is tomorrow’s health, and our researchers will be needed more than ever before to make up for lost time in the fight against cancer. Cancer Research Wales will be there to ensure they are supported as they continue to make a difference for cancer patients across Wales.
- Paul will be helping to raise vital funds to support Cancer Research Wales, as we continue to create better outcomes for cancer patients here in Wales.
About the Kilimanjaro Trek
- A brave team of trekkers will be setting off on 24th September 2021 to complete a challenge like no other.
- Climbing the World’s highest freestanding mountain – Mount Kilimanjaro.
- Trekking 70km – from the tropical temperatures of the rainforest, across the dusty African plains, and through the clouds to the snow-capped summit of Uhuru Peak.
- Camping along the way.
- Rewarded with a sunrise like no other. Watching the world wake up, from the rooftop of Africa.
- Summit height: 5,895m / 19,341 ft.
