In August, I will travel to South-West India for 4-weeks where myself and 11 other students from Robert Gordon University will develop and implement a sustainable health and well-being initiative. The RGU Go: India project aims to encourages sport participation, fitness and nutritional awareness within the region.
In order to go overseas, the RGU Go: India team must fundraise £6,600 to fund our initiative activities during our trip.
For many of you who know me well, will be aware of how physically unfit I am. Being selected for this project has given me a much needed health kick! And to push my limits even further, I am challenging myself to climb “The Ben”!
I have climbed only 1 Munroe before – Lochnagar. 20 minutes into my trek (before we had started any accent) I cried! Ben Nevis is 1,345m above sea level, and is the highest mountain in the British Isles. Not only will this experience be physically demanding, but will be a hugely rewarding personal experience!
To follow this fundraiser more closely, please subscribe to my personal blog where I will record my efforts throughout the build up, the climb itself and when I’m unable to walk for a week once it’s all over! https://lauramcdonaldevents.wordpress.com/
