belinda kirkComment

Love Her Wild (www.LoveHerWild.com) was set up to inform and inspire women around the world to get outdoors more. They are organising an all-female expedition for September this year and are looking for team mates to apply. No experience is needed, you just need to identify as a woman.

The expedition is called the Everest Challenge and the concept is simple:6 women, over 5 days, in the Lake District climbing the height of Everest. That’s hiking over 8,840 metres!

You can read more about the challenge with more details about the application process here: http://www.theordinaryadventurer.com/adventure/everest/female-expedition/

By applying you agree to the following:

  • attending a training weekend on Friday 2nd (evening) – 4th June 2017
  • being available between Wednesday 13th and Tuesday 19th September 2017 for the expedition (this includes a travel day either side of the challenge)
  • following the training schedule in your own time so you are fit and ready for the challenge
  • spending some time helping the team look for sponsorship opportunities (duties will be split amongst the team and full instructions will be given on what you need to do)
  • doing 1 action that will inspire other women. This could be organising a talk at a local Girl Guides or school, writing an article about your experience, or any other idea you may have
  • being filmed, recorded and photographed for any promotional purposes and to writing at least 3 blogs during the training and expedition for www.LoveHerWild.com
  • being a good and supportive team player who is accepting and tolerant of all peoples beliefs and opinions

  • Why you want to join the Everest expedition and how you want to use this opportunity to change or recognise something in your life
  • 1 way that you might like to inspire other women/girls (it doesn’t need to be anything fancy!)

1000 word limit. Deadline: 15th March

(if you can’t join the group because you don’t have Facebook, the email alone is fine for now)
