NEWS: Kailash Home and Everest

As often with Nepal, it is all about Mount Everest right now!
First of all, on 15th April, our Patron David Tait MBE is once again leaving the comforts of his home, this time to attempt a 6th Summit of Everest in order to raise much needed funds for abused children via the NSPCC and to also kindly raise the profile of HYF and the children of Kailash Home. David is going to stop by Kailash when he is in Kathmandu and the children are super excited to see him.
The other event related to Everest is that five of our children are taking part in the Everest Marathon. You will remember that a group of them was training hard for the race when the earthquake occurred and all plans were, of course, cancelled. The team is thrilled to be heading to Everest Base Camp and then racing down the mountain trail to its base at Namche Bazaar — a distance of approximately 26 miles. The goal is to raise funds for Kailash Home and also for the surrounding community.
You can find profiles of the team members here; it is wonderful to see how the children have grown and prospered since their arrival at Kailash Home.
Finally, one of our trustees, Stephan Michel, is taking part in an Ironman 70.3 race in May and is going to use his trip to Nepal in March as a training opportunity – he will go for a run with the Everest team and try to keep up with them as long as he can… he hopes that he can get to the end of the first road before being left behind! To support all three of these endeavours, please donate on JustGiving.
