RPS MD to climb new heights for charity

Charity,Latest News May 25, 2018 7:05 am

Our managing director is going to be scaling new heights – and it’s all for a good cause.

MD Gary Hudson will tackle the world’s highest freestanding mountain in aid of a brain tumour charity later this year.

He has now started his training and will be joined in September by fellow Academy of Chief Executives (ACE) member Steve Hanson, of Leeds-based health and safety specialists We Are Callidus.

The pair are attempting to climb Kilimanjaro in September in order to raise money for Oscar’s Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity.

The charity was formed in memory of nine-year-old Oscar Hughes, who died from a brain tumour in 2014, and aims to help reduce diagnosis time, increase survival rates and quality of life after treatment. The charity focuses on the Ongoing, Support, Care And Research (Oscar) in cases of paediatric brain tumours.

Gary’s week-long African adventure will take him through four different climates in the process. The mountain itself is located in the Kilimanjaro National Park of Tanzania and stands at a majestic 5,895 metres high. Kilimanjaro also has three volcanic cones, although the most recent activity was 200 years ago, and the last major eruption was estimated as taking place 360,000 years ago, so we think they should be safe!

The RPS team wishes Gary and Steve the best of luck with their training and we can’t wait to see how they get on with their challenge.
