Donegal woman to attempt four mountain peaks in 24 hours 20.07.18

ON the 21st of July 2018, adaptive adventurer, Nikki Bradley and internationally acclaimed mountaineer, Iain Miller will attempt to climb four of Ireland’s most iconic mountains in less than 24 hours. This will be the first time this has ever been attempted by a crutch user.
Nikki was left with severe damage to her right hip after battling cancer (Ewing’s Sarcoma) in her teens but has chosen to embrace her circumstances and hopes to raise a substantial amount of money for charity while doing so.
Nikki Bradley set to become first crutch user in Ireland to climb 4 mountain peaks in 24 hours.
Nikki regularly participates in physical challenges as part of an awareness campaign founded by the Donegal woman in 2013. ‘Fighting Fit For Ewing’s’ is a campaign designed to highlight the importance of exercise for rehabilitation while raising awareness for Ewing’s Sarcoma. Some past challenges include; mountain and rock climbing, scaling a route of the Sólheimajökull glacier in Iceland and completing a 24km Special Forces march during winter conditions in Wales.
The four peaks to be climbed are; Carrauntoohil in Kerry, followed by Croagh Patrick in Mayo, Slieve Donard in Down and Mount Errigal in Donegal.
The three charities chosen for this event are the Irish Cancer Society, Action Cancer and the Ross Nugent Foundation.
