She’s a regular Ray Mears (or Dora the Explorer, if you prefer!) - ExtraMile’s MD, Gabrielle Hadley, is going the extra mile to raise funds for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice to support children with limited life expectancy.

All funds go towards helping these children and their families enjoy their precious time together and overcome the hourly challenges they face. A real boost when they most need support.

She’ll spend days (and days) trekking up Mt. Kilimanjaro in aid of The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice and has been training week in, week out for 12 months to reach the mountain’s summit at 19,341 ft, taking 10 days.

Having been sponsored a whopping £13,000+ of her £19,341 target; she’s currently 67% of the way there. You can give her and The Donna Louise Trust a much appreciated helping hand here, at JustGiving.

Gabrielle is on the last leg of her brutal training regime before she sets off for Kilimanjaro on 20th September, so please join us in supporting her every step of the way, just click here to donate.

“I'm so proud and grateful to my friends, family and work colleagues for their huge generosity,” says Gabrielle, “they totally recognise I'm doing something way outside my comfort zone.”

Check out her blog to see just how brutal that training is and hear her talk candidly about her journey so far.

We hope you’ll join us in wishing the best of luck to our MD, who’s going the extra mile for a very worthy cause!
