London, September 2011 - Chris Sherlock, Director of Equifax Personal Solutions and Head of its Marketing Services Division, is facing a new challenge this month as he joins a team aiming to reach the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. As well as achieving the personal challenge of reaching the peak of Africa’s highest mountain, which rises to an altitude of 5,895 m (19,341 ft) AMSL (Above Mean Sea Level), Chris also has a target of raising more than £10,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Chris will be part of a 30 person team climbing Kilimanjaro, setting off from the UK on Thursday 15th September. They aim to reach the summit by Thursday 22nd September.
"I feel very passionate about the issues surrounding Alzheimer's and wanted to do something to raise funds towards the fantastic care and support provided by the Alzheimer’s Society. For those suffering from the effects of Alzheimer's, and their family and friends, it is like climbing a mountain every day, so climbing one of the most iconic mountains in the world seemed a perfect way to raise awareness and funds."
"We have a target to raise over £300,000 and we’re already 80% of the way there. We really hope that more people will sponsor us while we’re doing the climb."
