In October 2016 Ross Perry took part in an 8 day trek to the Nepal Everest Base Camp before continuing to “Kala Pattar” to reach a finishing height of 5645m above sea level. The trek is one of the most popular in the Himalayas and is considered both physically and mentally straining.
Ross took part in this challenge to raise money for the Steve Prescott foundation, a non-profit organisation set up by Steve to raise funds for two organisations: Christie Hospital, a leading cancer treatment centre in Europe, and Try Assist, the Rugby League’s benevolent fund. So far Ross and the rest of the team have raised an impressive £3,500 for the worthy cause. Well done Ross!
