Climb 4 Kim is a charity initiative in memory of my late mother Kim Rosenfeld to raise money for several different charities and causes by climbing many difficult and treacherous hills and/or mountains.
The whole idea came about after myself (Jamie) and my friend Anthony Waidhofer climbed Ben Nevis for charity and raised an exceptionally large amount of money for Pancreatic Cancer Action, which in turn funded the publishing and distribution of “Nourishing Your Body During Pancreatic Cancer Treatment”, a book developed by the University of Cork designed for those experiencing cancer-induced weight loss and is filled with high protein, high calorie easy to make recipes (available free of charge from pancreaticcanceraction.org).
This then developed into a climb up Mount Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains with 17 eager climbers taking on a much bigger task. It was extremely tough at times but it was a truly breathtaking experience, and more importantly raised £25,000 for a variety of good causes.
Our next trip will be heading back to Morocco in October to climb the Chigaga and Bougern dunes in the Sahara Desert!
Check out the team’s profiles on to see who they raising money for (and find out more about them of course!)
Thank you and much love,
