Adventure “Kilimanjaro – Going for Broke”

Adventure (), Richard Heap, Ben Pritchard (Gro) 52 min

Four great and successful climbers, who have all suffered major tragedies that have left them seriously disabled, decide to get together to climb Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Jamie has no arms and no legs! Half of Paul’s body is as dead as a corpse! David has never fully recovered from total paralysis whilst Pete has a broken back, one kidney and calves the thickness of a small pencil! With incredible poignancy and honesty, our four heroes talk about how their lives have led up to this point in time, the pain and suffering, the doubts and the joy. After a gentle introduction, they are once again journeying into a world of risk and danger. Fierce blizzard conditions close in. With only 5 good arms, two good legs, a bout of pulmonary oedema, swollen stumps and a missing glacier between them the team presses on.
