Flipping TEWSDAY’s on their heads by sharing challenges and great stories of achievement and more……
Tonight we share an amazing challenge … Meet Jess and Vicky.


We are Jess and Vicky, from Greater Manchester.

On November 14th 2015 we will begin our Journey to Nepal where we will spend 16 Days trekking through the Himalayas. On day 10 we will reach Everest Base Camp at 5,380 m (17,700 ft) and will complete the Final leg of our journey when we reach Kala Patthar at 5,644.5m (18,519 ft), where we will see the amazing views of Mt. Everest. The whole trip is self funded.

We both met in college in 2009, were we both discovered our joint passion for outdoor pursuits. Since then we have completed different challenges together and independently, ranging from summiting the highest peaks in the UK, Extreme obstacle races, long distance runs, and Jess summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in June 2014. Together we decided to take on this difficult, however rewarding challenge for Reuben’s Retreat!

We chose Reuben’s Retreat as we have followed the charities progress from the beginning, and it is local to ourselves. Knowing that the money we will raise will go to such a fantastic cause, making a difference to many families lives around the UK, inspires us to take on this once in a lifetime challenge.

We will keep you posted on our training and fundraising throughout the year, and we will be taking on many other challenges in this time.
