Kilimanjaro Challenge

Kertrina and Barry Jones, long-time supporters of the charity have decided to take on the Kilimanjaro Challenge – their biggest challenge to date!

As well as both completing six PARAS’10 events, Kertrina has also done two half marathons and Barry has done one half marathon, all for the charity.  In 2014, they attempted the Three Peaks challenge, but unfortunately Barry ended his challenge just short of the Ben Nevis summit due to injury.  Kertrina only managed to complete Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike due to travel and work commitments, so naturally, they are re-attempting all three again this June!

Kertrina and Barry JonesThey will be doing the PARAS’10 again this year, with Barry attempting the double.  To Kertrina’s utter disappointment, she will only be able to complete Catterick since she will be busy at university in July as she completes her Masters.

Their activities for 2015 don’t stop there.  Barry will be doing the Fan Dance in July, on their anniversary, with Kertrina cheering him on.  In October, they will be swapping roles as Kertrina completes another half marathon, with Barry cheering her on.

Their Kilimanjaro Challenge will be in July 2016, so there is every chance that they will book something else in prior to that, but if you would like to donate to their Kilimanjaro Challenge, you can visit their JustGiving page here.
