Daniel Coulton

Daniel from Engadine, New South Wales in Australia will be climbing the 7 day TK Rongai Route from 7th – 13th July 2013, for Alzheimer’s Australia Research Fund. The proceeds from Daniel’s campaign will be used for a good cause – research into a cure for Dementia/Alzheimers.

Hi Guys,

I’m raising money for research into a cure for Dementia/Alzheimers. on the 9th of July this year I will be attempting to summit Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s highest free standing mountain mount Kilimanjaro. I’m doing this because I have seen firsthand the impacts that this disease has not only on the patient but on all of their friends and family. I have watched powerless as my grandmother once the Dux of her school and the kindest people I knew, declines to a point where she no longer recognises her husband of nearly 60 years. The heartbreak that this has brought is devastating. So I suppose my efforts are not all altruistic, I’m raising money to find a cure so that there’s no chance I will have to go through this again, either with my own parents or heaven forbid that my children will have to go through it with me. I have set myself the challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in July, the climb will take seven days up the Rongai route. My hope is that by doing this I cannot only raise some cash for a much-deserved cause but also raise awareness of what is truly the widespread impact of this disease that is affecting more and more people every day.

Thanking everyone for your help.

Daniel
