65 Degrees North were joined by 5 injured Royal Marines and 5 female Police Officers from South Wales Police and collectively became one team ...'Team Kili'!
Team Kili successfully 'Conquered Kili' and raised funds for the Royal Marines Charity, which provides a better quality of life to serving and retired Royal Marines and their families.
Changing the perception of physical and mental disability through the ‘Spirit of Adventure’ 65DN aim to inspire and motivate others to overcome, achieve and succeed.
Conquering Kili was undertaken to promote disability awareness and recognise the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Many sufferers do not recognise their symptoms or realise they are treatable, others try to hide it because they feel ashamed and as a consequence their situation deteriorates.
PTSD is a normal reaction to extreme trauma and it is vital to de-stigmatise this condition in order for sufferers to seek early diagnosis and treatment.
