Everest For Cancer (2017)

Hi Friends and Family and members of the public.

Thank you for your support on my blog thus far. I truly appreciate the support that I have received through the years.

It is time for me to move on to one of my biggest projects so far and it thrills me to be the first in Singapore to scale Mount Everest For Cancer. No Singaporean has done it to date and thats my goal! My uncle got struck by nose cancer in 2005 and survived it and I was extremely impressed by his will to survive and be his own champion!

I plan to climb Cho Oyu this September and will climb Mount Everest next year from end of March to June. Enjoy the video!

My aim is to raise as much as S$20,000 for the Singapore Cancer Society, in which the monies will be donated to them. This monies will help fund their cancer treatments, hospice care, rehabilitation, chemotherapy and also medications.

Come join me on my new website where you can follow my progress:

I'm an aspiring climber from the tiny island of Singapore looking constantly at different places of the world, looking for places to exploit and fill up my adventure gauge which is always hanging in the balance. I graduated from Republic Polytechnic with a Diploma in Outdoor And Adventure Learning and I believe that I'm a true advocate of the outdoors. The first trip that I did was to Mount Ophir, standing at 1276 metres in Johor Bahru. The feeling of being immersed within nature and actually climbing to the top was just rejuvenating. From then since, I've climbed a total of 41 mountains around the world, highest being Mount Everest South Summit at 8700m and two 7000m peaks called Lenin Peak and Peak Korzhenescaya. Currently, I'm managing sales and marketing at a rock-climbing company and forming my own adventure company, JTrace, focusing on adventure trips consultation, training clients for their own Everest, corporate team building, inspirational speaking sessions and brand ambassadorship.
