Endurance skiing raises funds for charity

Andy Clarke ready for the Monster Ski Challenge.


Andy Clarke from Nucletron was fundraising for the multiple sclerosis when he took part in the Monster Ski event in Tignes, France.


Equivalent to three descents of Mount Everest, the challenge was to ski 90,000 vertical feet over three days. 


Andy said: “Thankfully, we smashed the target and completed over 100,000 vertical feet.  We also skied over 130km to complete the challenge.  I wanted to support MS sufferers, as it is still a condition most people know little about.


“As I am a keen skier, it was something that I was able to attempt, but it meant I had to push myself to train for such a bizarre challenge.


“My colleagues at Nucletron sponsored me, and so did many of my friends in the NHS.   I had to raise a minimum of £1,700 just to participate.”
