Liam and Johan are our star challengers for April 2015

CLIC Sargent is so lucky to have so many inspirational people that go the extra mile by taking on a challenge to raise money for children and young people with cancer, and their families.

Here is an amazing story from Liam Thom and Johan Linklater, our star challengers of the month, who took on the Mount Kilimanjaro Trek earlier this year.

Liam and Johan's story

Liam and Johan have recently returned from an amazing adventure. They climbed to the roof of Africa and summited Kilimanjaro, the highest free standing mountain in the world, to support CLIC Sargent and Fight for Sight.

The duo initially set a joint fundraising target of £7,000 with the money to be shared equally between the two charities. 

To raise sponsorship, they organised lots of events such as quiz nights, bingo evenings, a race night and a 20 hour cycling marathon in a local supermarket. 

With such successful fundraising events the pair passed their initial £7,000 target but that soon increased to £10,000 and finally ended at a staggering £11,000! 

Take on a challenge of your own

If you’ve been inspired by Liam and Johan’s story you can follow in their footsteps and sign up to take on Kilimanjaro and go the extra mile for children and young people with cancer.
