Boulder Central 24 hour Charity Climb

Boulder Central 24 hour Charity Climb

On July 29th at 12pm the Boulder Central staff are going to embark on a quest to climb for 24 hours straight between them with an aim to raise £1000 for Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA). The guys from the team will be joined by a few friends who will help them in this endeavour and the centre will be open throughout the 24 hours and available for climbers to crush throughout the night.

The 24 hour climb will take place in the green corner in view of the rest of the centre so you can cheer the team on at any time. The climb will take place on a specially set circuit set in a circle around the green corner. The team aim to complete 1000 laps in the 24 hours to increase the challenge. That’s a lap approximately every 1minute 30 and just £1 per lap completed!

 Sadly the green corner won’t be available to climb on during the event but there will be plenty of other climbs around the centre to have a go at.

The café will be open all night and will be selling coffee, pizza, toasties and confectionary for those who want it. Phresh tunes will be playing through the event to give the climbers the energy needed for this feat.

Entry after 6pm will be standard price and £5 for direct debit holders. To boost the money raised for the MNDA, every entry will generate a donation to the charity. Anyone climbing during regular opening hours (10am-6pm) and who wish to continue climbing past 6pm will be asked to make a standard donation of £2 that will go directly to the charity.

MNDA is Boulder Central’s charity of the month. Motor neurone disease (MND) describes a group of diseases that affect the nerves (motor neurones) in the brain and spinal cord that tell your muscles what to do. With MND, messages from these nerves gradually stop reaching the muscles, leading them to weaken, stiffen and waste. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. Some people also experience changes to their thinking and behaviour. However, MND affects everyone differently. Not all symptoms will affect everyone, or in the same order. Symptoms also progress at varying speeds, which makes the course of the disease difficult to predict.

MND is life-shortening and there is no cure. Although the disease will progress, symptoms can be managed to help achieve the best possible quality of life.

MND can affect adults of any age, but usually when they are 50 years old or more. The disease is more common in men than women, but this evens out with age.

MND affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time. This means it is considered a relatively rare disease. As such, general health and social care professionals may not see many cases of MND, so it is important to seek out specialists who do have appropriate experience in its treatment and care.

To help Boulder Central reach their target of £1000 either come in to the centre and donate or donate to our Just Giving page!
