A View From Why Not
My name Is Simon Kerridge.
For the last 5 years I have hiked, biked and skied my way around the world. All the time trying to challenge myself as much as possible. I have decided that it is time to challenge myself for a far greater cause than my own personal development.
Starting in late April I will be undertaking my greatest challenge so far, Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). This trail will start on the USA/Mexico border and finish 5 months and 4265km (2650mi) later on the USA/Canada border.
I will carry my life on my back, and live in the wilderness for this entire time. My goal throughout this journey is not only to raise money, but also raise awareness of Multiple Sclerosis. End discrimination, and show people that MS doesn't sentance peolpe to a life of immobility.
The money donated by you will be used to help and support those affected by MS in many ways. 45% of donations will be used to support Multiple Sclerosis advocacy and information programmes. 45% will stimulate research projects funded by the Multiple Sclerosis Research Trust. 10% will be used for research and access to treatment internationally through the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation.
I am aiming to raise $30 for every mile that I walk. Please get behind my cause and help me reach my target, and more importantly help those affected by Multiple Sclerosis, by giving generously. Follow my journey at http://aviewfromwhynot.com/
