    Here at The Myton Hospices we have a mountain to climb to keep our fundraising going during this difficult time – and we’re hoping you can help us by climbing a mountain of your own (not literally, but almost!).

    Whether you’re working from home, in work, furloughed, a child or teenager on school lockdown, or a super-fit over-70 (or under-70) in self-isolation, everyone can complete this challenge and help us meet our challenge too.

    The Myton Mountain will also help keep you fit and healthy – an important part of the battle against Coronavirus!

    The average height of a staircase in a UK home is 7.87ft, so we’ve worked out how many times you would have to climb your stairs to scale the heights for Myton this summer.

    If your home or office stairs are different, you can just divide the total footage of the mountain by the height of your stairs (in feet) and that will tell you how many times you will need to climb your stairs.

     

    The walk back down doesn’t count towards your total – that’s your descent of the mountain!



    • Everest – 29,079ft = 3,695 stair ascents

    • Kilimanjaro – 19,340ft = 2,457 stair ascents

    • Machu Picchu - 7,972ft = 1,013 stair ascents

    • Ben Nevis – 4,413ft = 561 stair ascents

    • Snowdon – 3,560ft – 452 stair ascents

    • Scafell Pike – 3,210ft = 408 stair ascents

    • Malvern Hills – 1,394ft = 177 stair ascents.


    You don’t have to reach for the stars with this challenge – you could always start off with the Malvern Hills and slowly work your way up the different levels until you’ve reached your peak.

    All we ask is that you set up a JustGiving page and get people to sponsor you – even the smallest amount – for your efforts, because every little will make such a huge difference to the lives of our patients and their families.
