About a year ago during his GCSEs, Emmanuel decided to participate in a World Challenge Tour to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. In the build up to the "epic trip", he had to be resourceful and raise some funds for the trip doing paper rounds, car washes, gardening and participating in a Sponsored Challenge Marathon.
Although the highlight of the trip was the Mt Kilimanjaro climb (a challenge in itself), a significant amount of time was dedicated to service and charity. The group had raised funds for and whilst in Tanzania, actually built a classroom block for a village primary school.
The olympics embody values such as endeavour, inspiration and determination. All these speak to character building and it this that I would like to celebrate in my brother who I have seen grow from being a playstation wielding teenager to being a mountain conquering , brick laying volunteer.
