MacRoberts Senior Associate Lisa Maguire is preparing to embark on her journey to Everest Base Camp in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Beginning on 1st April 2018, Lisa and best friend Rebecca are aiming to complete the “rapid” version of the trek, meaning they will be on the mountain for 10 days as opposed to 14 (the longer recommended timescale for acclimatisation purposes). They are therefore attempting a base camp trek with a bit of a twist, taking into account the 4-day time reduction, which means less time to adjust to a lack of oxygen as well as up to 10 hours’ hiking per day for 10 days, with the onset of altitude sickness being a real possibility.
From all at MacRoberts, we wish Lisa and Rebecca the very best of luck!
Their story and updates on their journey can be found on their fundraising page, here.
