Former professional rugby player turned adaptive adventurer Ed Jackson along with friend and fellow adventurer Ross Stirling will climb the spiral ramp at Twickenham stadium over a 48 hour period to raise funds for charity.
The Millimetres 2 Mountains Foundation was set up by Ed in 2019 to use the outdoors, challenge and adventure to help others overcome physical and/or psychological trauma and as a grant funding charity has also gifted over £150k to other charitable causes. From this event M2M are going to donate 50% of the funds raised to Restart Rugby and in particular the 4ED fund which has been set up to support rugby player Ed Slater and his family after recently being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
The aim for the duo will be to scale the height of Everest in that time but Ed and Ross are also encouraging others to climb with them over the weekend and will be joined by a host of stars from the sporting world and beyond in an attempt to see how what collective height can be reached. The event will run from 5pm Friday 16th Sep through to 5pm Sunday 18th Sep with guests able to join at any point and climb for as long as they like with competitions and prizes up for grabs.
There will also be a base camp set up with food, drinks, music and entertainment where people can support, recover and enjoy each others company as we all come together for a good cause.
The event will be ticketed so we can gauge numbers. If you would like to get involved then please buy your ticket here.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be going directly to the charities – If you can’t attend but would like to support or would like to make any further donations please head to – Just Giving
We would like to extend a special thank you to all the RFU for their support.
