Mount Everest. It has been a place that has fascinated me since I was a little girl, with it’s alluring beauty on one side and it's unpredictable and commanding nature on the other. While I have always known that I would never scale it’s peaks, I’ve always wanted to hike to Basecamp, and that is what I will be undertaking in a week’s time!

In December, I attended a UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) fundraising event and met some inspiring members of the organisation who were heading to Everest Base Camp in March 2016. The mission to Base Camp is designed to raise awareness and funds for two important UNICEF projects: Nutrition programs in South East Asia and the Nepalese Earthquake appeal. After hearing about UNICEF’s amazing work and dedication to helping marginalised and poverty-stricken children and families across the globe, I asked what I could do to help. Then and there I signed up, committing to raise at least $5000 and to head up to Everest Base Camp on an 18 day trip of a lifetime!

Getting ready to head to Nepal has been a journey in itself. I have walked on average 60kms per week with boots, 10kg pack and ensuring lots of escarpment climbs have been achieved to get my body ready for the trek ahead. Walking has been time to reflect on the plight of millions of children who live in dire circumstances and who lack the things we typically take for granted, such as fresh, clean water. Training has also been a time of raising awareness of friends, family and community members have joined to support me through the kilometers! I am happy to say, I am fitter and healthier than ever and have raised over $7000 that is going directly to support UNICEF and their work.

I will be back with stories and adventures to share in a few weeks and in the meantime, I encourage you to share an act of kindness with someone around you. A small act can make a big difference!
