This time tomorrow Team Everest will be waiting to board their flight ahead of their epic summit attempt!
Preparation and training is complete, bags are packed, and the team are ready for the biggest challenge of their lives!
Without the help, expert advice, funding and support from so many this project would not have been possible!
Our Sponsors and Supporters play a key role in ‘Rehabilitation through Adventure’ and we would like to say a HUGE thank you to each and every one of them.
A huge amount of effort and planning goes on in the background of every endeavour, and we are fortunate to have some amazing people constantly giving their all to help us succeed.
The crew at @upandunderoutdoorgear continuously strive to source the best kit and equipment for the team and, along with @marmot.mountain.europe, they ensure that safety and comfort is never compromised.
Thanks to @AtlanticOpticalUK, @LenstecOpticalLaboratories and @Julbo.eyewear.international the whole team have the best eyewear available to them, which will not only protect their eyes from the sun’s UV rays and potential painful snow blindness, but ensure they also look stylish on the mountain!
Once again we will be able to share every step of the journey thanks to the incredible Comms Kit provided by @Inmarsat and we will be able to keep all our electrical kit powered up thanks to @MobileSolarChargers.
The team will be able to capture some incredible images and footage on their mobile phones without worrying about damaging them thanks to the ‘adventure proof tech accessories’ provided by @mous
Keeping track of time, in even the most extreme conditions, will not be an issue for the team thanks to @elliotbrownwatches who have provided the whole team with a fit-for-purpose professional watch, which has been the subject of intense testing, surviving some of the most hostile conditions imaginable.
We would like to say a special thank you to @lonewolfspirits for ‘standing with us’ and creating ‘Operation Everest Gin’ for the Everest Launch Event at @Inmarsat.
Its unique recipe, inspired by the Himalayas, embraces the ‘spirit of adventure, and is absolutely delicious!
As always, the kindness and generosity of people never ceases to amaze us, and we would like to especially mention Venn Tailoring and @thewelshshop for their support.
We would like to finish with a very big THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to our JustGiving page and left messages of support for the team.
We will endeavour to read and respond to all your messages throughout this 2-month expedition and look forward to chatting to you all live from the World’s highest mountain!!!
