The North Face Night Rock Run 2015 – Seduwa School

Adrian Hayes is a  Nepalese speaking former Gurkha officer who was on a mountaineering expedition when the Nepal earthquake of 25 April 2015 struck. The Seduwa School complex and outbuildings in this Sherpa village in the Makalu region of Nepal was the most heavily damaged village he encountered in his first week’s personal quest trek to help, communicate and raise funds for the people of a country that means a great deal to me. The entire school s badly damaged with the school offices and two adjoining houses demolished. It will need a complete rebuild, possibly in a new part of the village. The children have no schooling and, by careful checking, the village will get no help from the Nepalese government.
AED 5000 of the participant fees from the North Face Rock Run 2015 was donated to the village principal to assist in this vital school rebuild. (Monitored by Adrian’s friends Dawa, Mingma and Tashi Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks, friends who are from the area).

Urban-Ultra Energizer Night Rebel 2013 – The Leapfrog Foundation

The selected beneficiary for the Urban-Ultra Energizer Night Rebel is The Leapfrog Foundation … a non-profit and non-governmental organisation that aspires to raise money to improve children’s lives through education or sports initiatives.
A school in Uganda with more than 1000 underprivileged students has a dream of building a school library. This is the first project of this initiative, and so far money has been raised through the sale of unwanted and/or second hand items.
We are thrilled to add to the fund from the registration fees from the Urban-Ultra Energizer Night Rebel 2013 participants and look forward to more progress being made on the next floor of the library construction.

Thanks to you, the participants, and Energizer, Intersport, Sport in Life, Aqualyte and Adventure HQ.
