Solace is celebrating 15 years of providing mental health support to
refugees and asylum seekers. Senior Therapist Sarah Blossom is
embarking on a personal fundraising challenge to climb 15 peaks in 15
days as part of Refugee Week 2021, and this years’ theme ‘We cannot
walk alone’.

The total distance will be 216km and the total elevation (climb) will be 15,333m. This is equivalent to the elevation of Everest almost twice!

The challenge for Sarah, accompanied by her partner, will be to reach 15 mountain* summits (one per day, for 15 days) returning to the valley each night and camping to start the following day. Sarah will do every summit raising funds for Solace and awareness of this year’s Refugee Week campaign We cannot walk alone. We are asking people to give what you can to this fundraising appeal. All funds will go directly to Solace to support the work that we do.

The walks begin on Saturday 12th June and finishes on Saturday 26th June.
Go Sarah!!

*A mountain is any elevation of land that reaches at least 2000ft (610m) with a slope greater than 2 degrees.
