In 2017 founder Ed Jackson's life was turned upside down after suffering a devastating spinal cord injury. Despite being told he would never walk again Ed set out to defy the odds and within a year he was stood on top of Mt Snowdon with the dream of showing others facing their own seemingly impossible challenges that there is hope.
Inspired by his own journey from millimetres to mountains, Ed co-founded The ‘Millimetres to Mountains Foundation’ with friend and fellow sportsman Olly Barkley. Their mission? Helping those who really need it whilst changing perceptions about charity along the way.
Millimetres to Mountains aim is to be the catalyst for positive change in people facing challenges in life. Through discovery and adventure we provide a platform for individuals to redefine their own limitations and take steps towards a brighter future.
Through unique mountain experiences and progressive pop-up parties we raise funds to take groups on adventures to help them realise the true transformative power of the great outdoors.
Whether it be mental health issues such as anxiety or depression, overcoming a physical disability or people who have just lost their way we believe in the power of reconnecting, both with people and nature.
