EVEREST 13…. 5-6th August 2017
On the weekend of 5-6th August 2017 at Western Gardens, a team of Ryde Fire Station’s firefighters climbed a distance the equivalent of over 8 Mount Everest’s in 24 hours which was almost 72000 meters, just under 45 miles on a 10M high ladder.
We are one of the main beneficiaries along with Ryde Fire Station Charity Fund, who support local families going through a difficult period of time in their lives.
The event was well supported, before by the sponsors, and during the 24 hours by all the members of the public who cheered them on.
The Event raised approximately £5500 which will be split between the two beneficiaries.
