Boggo's Mount Everest Challenge

I'm climbing Mauao 38 times in 50 days to help my fitness and raise money for an awesome cause!

Bay of Plenty

Climbing Mauao 38 times is the the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest.

The More FM Mount Everest Challenge is supporting a great cause - Waipuna Hospice - who provide amazing care for those less fortunate with life ending illness.

As well as raising funds for this cause I'm doing this for my personal goals of fitness and weight loss.

Please help me and at least go without one coffee and donate $4.50 to the cause.

Mount Everest Challenge Done!  29 March 2018

Finished with one day to spare!

38 climbs of the Mount - same height as climbing Everest!

It seemed easy at the start but as real life got in the way and my right knee played up it became difficult to get there and ended up a bit of a grind but I was committed to finish and finished strong with a climb straight up the old King of the Mountain Track!

I don't think I'll climb the Mount again this year. Hiking off-track in the Kaimais and not seeing anyone all day is now much more appealing than dodging the crowds on the path that often seems to narrow!

All for a great cause and I often thought about my sister and mother both lost to cancer and I'm proud to have raised $300 for the Waipuna Hospice - couldn't think of a more deserving cause!
