While other 16 year olds are breathing a sigh of relief at the end of their GCSE’s and looking forward to a carefree summer the extraordinary Lara Alexander has chosen to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and raise funds for MS Research Training and Education at the same time. Lara will be taking on the 10 day trek in Africa along with her father James. The 5,895 metre
ascent is both physically and mentally challenging so they are both looking for to the breath-taking views and sense of achievement upon reaching the summit.
Lara’s motivation for choosing MS Research is personal; twelve years ago Lara’s uncle was diagnosed with MS and having witnessed how MS has affected him and his family Lara feels strongly that help and support is a vital step
towards finding a cure for and raising awareness of Multiple Sclerosis.
MS Research Training and Education wish Lara and James the best of luck for
their trek and would like to thank them so very much for their support, we
think they are amazing!
