Everest in the Alps

The Brain Tumour Charity


In February 2018, 30 intrepid skiers travelled to the Swiss Alps to ski the height of Everest, to raise over £500k for The Everest Research Centre, a collaborative European initiative, committed to finding a cure for low grade paediatric brain tumours.

Over the course of the four days, the group covered 8,848 metres uphill, stayed in mountain huts and battled atrocious conditions, including sub-zero temperatures of -30 degrees.

The group has already smashed their original fundraising target with over £950k being raised to date – an amount that will make a huge impact in our mission to find a cure faster.
