What must it feel like when you have made it up to 17,598 feet elevation? The air at this altitude is less dense and air molecules are further apart decreasing the amount of oxygen available to breathe. What can you see? How fast must your heart be beating, and your lungs be breathing? More than anything, what an incredible sense of achievement you must feel. Surely these are the thoughts of someone who may have trained, in their prime physical fitness and able bodied. Now consider achieving this feat having been diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s disease in your mid 30s.
As we know, Krish is fully committed to raising funds for those suffering from Parkinson disease. All the money he raises will go towards the new Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy with the Grand Opening taking place on the 11th of April 2023 at Kent’s MS Therapy Centre in Canterbury. He has set himself the admirable challenge of getting to Everest Base Camp by the 11th of April when we hope to be able to video link/call Krish from the MS Therapy Centre and share his joy, having reached his goal!
In the meantime, Krish has been putting himself ‘through the paces’ here in the UK as he continues his training! He recently reached the summit of Bowfell in the Lake District. Many congratulations Krish!

We continue to wish Krish every success as he prepares for this challenge of a lifetime!
