Head Coach Trent Robinson has reached a significant milestone ahead of his Mount Kilimanjaro climb in October for The Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF).
Robinson has now raised more than $30,000 of his $50,000 fundraising goal in support of the MHF, a great achievement for a great cause and with plenty of time still left to donate.
Situated in Tanzania at 19,340 feet (5,895 metres) Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain and the highest "free standing” mountain in the world.
A group of 20 supporters will be tested to the limit, mentally and physically but nothing like what brain cancer patients and their families go through.
Sydney Roosters Head Coach Trent Robinson said: “It speaks volumes of Mark’s character that following his diagnosis with brain cancer, he used such an uncertain time in his life to generate awareness and a means to help others by creating The Mark Hughes Foundation.
“This will be a challenging climb and I look forward to pushing myself through five different climatic zones, with the end goal reaching the world’s highest freestanding mountain.
“I feel really fortunate that I can support Mark’s important work this way, and I am keen to raise as much money as I can for his Foundation.”
