OBΓÇÖs Paul Miller Climbs Mount Kilimanjaro
Our very own Paul Miller who heads up the Australia branch of officebroker.com has just succeeded in scaling the vast peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro for charity!
In a bid to raise valuable funds for Action Medical Research, officebroker.comΓÇÖs Paul Miller strapped on his hiking gear on the 4th October 2012 and took the formidable challenge that is Mount Kilimanjaro.
For nearly 60 years, Action Medical Research has been undertaking incredible breakthroughs in polio, pregnancy and heart function in babies and young children. They have helped to save thousands of at-risk babies by funding medical research.
PaulΓÇÖs aim was to raise no less than ┬ú4,300 for the charity by gathering sponsors for his climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.
ΓÇ£It was the most challenging 6 days both mentally and physically I have ever taken on,ΓÇ¥ says Paul. ΓÇ£At the same time though it was the most rewarding.
ΓÇ£Only 15% of people of the people that attempt to reach Uhuru Peak at 5,985m above sea level actually make it ΓÇô and we did. Everyone we met, from the porters to the guides, were such great people.
ΓÇ£The whole experience leaves you feeling very humble but very proud at the same time.ΓÇ¥
Fantastically, Paul has managed to raise ┬ú3808 plus Gift Aid but remains just barely shy of his full hoped-for donation.
