Helping The Gut Foundation by walking up a very large mountain.

As some may know late 2018 I discovered I had issues with my liver, which made me sick very easily and disrupted all aspects of my life. Because of this I would spend weeks in bed, too tired to do anything, but with the support of medical staff and friends I've got myself back fighting fit.

I decided once I felt better that I would do some fundraising for charities involving liver health and recovery.

I discovered a fantastic charity called The Gut Foundation.

Since 1993, the Gut Foundation, (formerly the Bowel and Liver Trust,) has helped improve the gastrointestinal health of the people of New Zealand by promoting research and education of liver and digestive disease disorders. Many of these people that the Gut Foundation have advocated for are your friends and neighbours. Gut health is not something we like to speak about but it is the silent killer that is ever present in our community.

There is loads more information on the website.

A couple of my friends decided that they were going to climb Kilimanjaro in mid June so I thought no better opportunity to test myself in my recovery and help out a great charity.

On the 11/06/20 4 Irish men are going to set off from New Zealand to climb one of the hardest mountains in the world on a 8 day trek.

There will be a lot of ups and downs with the training but I suppose that's what you should expect when walking hills and mountains.

No donation is too small! Every little bit helps!

I've had problems with my liver and want to give back and help others.
