It’s the tallest endeavour anyone has ever taken on for us – Shadi Ganjavain- Connor set her sights high and challenged herself to summit the iconic Matterhorn mountain in Switzerland to raise money for our #2MillionSteps appeal.
On Wednesday 19th July at around 9am she reached the top of the mountain with a very special Murray Parish Trust flag in tow!
Shadi has trained incredibly hard over the last few months to conquer the summit, culminating in three climbs in the Alps in the days leading up to the Matterhorn summit attempt. Not only that – she has created an entire community around this fundraising effort, incorporating a sponsored climb for children at Golden Gecko in Romsey – a successful collective attempt to climb the height of The Matterhorn at the climbing wall, and has embarked on a Schools Tour where Shadi’s fantastic journey has wowed and inspired school children across the South.
“Truly incredible. Speechless with admiration, gratitude and pride! X” – Jim Murray
“Look at this AMAZING woman!!! x” – Sarah Parish
The Murray Parish Trust have been truly inspired, filled with pride and humbled by this incredible achievement.
Congratulations Shadi – A heartfelt THANK YOU from the whole team!
