The endurance training, aching limbs and even blisters won’t stop Sarah Bush, 19, from the Parish of St Joseph’s, Wath-upon-Dearne, who is determined to trek and complete the Climb Kilimanjaro for Clean Water 2016 in aid of Dig Deep, which is a charity that helps with clean water and sanitation in Kenya.
Sarah, who is a first year music performance student at the University of Huddersfield, is taking on a new and bigger challenge to raise money for charity. Mount Kilimanjaro will be her biggest challenge yet, taking five days to reach the summit at 19,341 ft. Her fundraising target is an incredible £3,000.
Sarah said, “I am thrilled to be climbing Kilimanjaro for Clean Water 2016 in aid of Dig Deep. This is one of the toughest, yet most exhilarating challenges of my life. Knowing the money will be used to improve the lives of people in Kenya is the best part of all.
“I’m taking part in this event for Dig Deep because I really believe in their cause. The charity helps make a real difference to the lives of the families they work with in Kenya. I love raising money and helping as many people as I can. In previous years, I’ve raised money for Marie Curie, Aspire, Save the Children and Cancer Research.
“I need to raise as much as I can for Dig Deep. Any donations would be much appreciated.”
