What is Mountember?
To raise awareness and essential funds for The ARNI Institute in the rehabilitation of stroke survivors - we will be walking up the highest peaks in the UK
Pen Y Fan
Whether you walk one or all four we will be hiking up one peak every weekend in September, hence the name 'Mountember' starting on Sunday 8th in the Brecon Beacons to tackle Pen - Y - Fan.
Why are we doing this?
Unlike most other illnesses, once diagnosed, treatment is administered, recovery and a normal life can resume, with a stroke once the injury has happened, and by a small miracle survived, an entire change of life is needed... learning how to speak, talk, move, walk and remember is a daily and sometimes an impossible challenge without the help of charities like ARNI, training people to specialise in stroke rehabilitation, helping those that have been left to just survive, we aim to let them live life again.
How do i get involved?
Getting involved is easy, decide how many walks you would like to do, you can do just one or all four. Then you can register here.
A £25 registration charge is required per person, this one off payment will cover you to walk any amount of the peaks.
You will be asked to raise a minimum of £250 per person, all of which will go direct to the charity. The best thing is to use our fundraising page on JustGiving.
It costs ARNI around £500 to train each specialist so everyone that can raise the £200 will be giving someone a chance to get cheaper training in turn, giving a stroke survivor a chance to become more self efficient and to start living their lives again.
