Come on the adventure of a lifetime with me, while supporting me and my Everest fundraising efforts.
The support for this has been fantastic so far. We are eating into the 200 tickets available for the two packages and I'm hugely grateful to you all who have supported the initiative and therefore myself.
Fundraising for these types of endeavours can be hugely challenging, sometimes more than the endeavour themselves and often demoralising, so to see you all parting with your hard earned cash to take a chance on joining me on Everest is heart warming.
This comp is open to anyone in the world, with flights paid from wherever the winner lives to Kathmandu, Nepal and back so please share with anyone you feel might be interested, I'd be very grateful.
MORE ABOUT DAMIAN
He is a former professional rugby player, traveler and adventurer hailing from Galway, Ireland. After a sixteen year career battling on the rugby pitches of The Celtic league, English Premiership and French Top 14 Championship, injury forced his hand and he made the tough decision to retire. During his down time from the intensity of professional sports Damian indulged his passion for travel and adventure, visiting more than 50 countries on 6 continents and challenging himself in different ways with a 3 week expedition into the high altitude Pamir mountains in Afghanistan, summiting Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, climbing Mont Blanc, France and Gran Paradiso, Italy.
In April 2016 Damian took on the might of the Sahara desert, completing the 6 day, 257km Marathon des Sables, also known as ‘The Toughest Footrace onEarth’. After the race and a period of reflection, Damian commited to takingon the incredible challenge to row across the Atlantic Ocean, alone!
18 months of physical, mental and technical preperation led to the 14th of December where Damian kissed goodbye to his parents and shoved off intothe unknown. 63 days, 6 hours and 25 minutes later he crossed the finish lineof the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge arriving in Antigua 28kgs lighter and much hairer to a heros welcome. Having endured 9 meter swells, a badly cut head, capsizes, encounters with Whales, sea & pressure sores, losing an oar and complete steering failure with over 2000 nautical miles to Antigua, Damian said, A hell of an experience, hell of an adventure and hell of a challenge. It was exactly what I wanted from the challenge, I wanted to be pushed to my limits mentally and physically and I sure got what I wanted and then some.
