Walk to Everest for A-T - BrAshA-T, Brisbane, Australia

Walk to Everest for A-T

Walk to Everest for A-T has been formed by a group of close mates in Wagga Wagga to raise awareness and much needed funds for BrAshA-T.

Jeff and Carly Millar had never heard of Ataxia-Telangiectasia until 18 months ago when they were told by doctors that they believed their son Charlie had the rare genetic disorder. Devastated and in disbelief they would later learn that their little girl Zara, was also born with A-T.

Jeff and his mates will be doing the 12 day trek from Kathmandu to Mt Everest Base Camp in November to raise much need funds.

The trek will be hard but not as hard as what potentially lies ahead for Charlie (4yrs), his sister Zara (2yrs), and the other 30-40 children in Australia living with A-T.

There is a cure out there, we just need to find it!

We thank you in advance for your generosity, it is greatly appreciated!

From my first conversation with Ted Toohey, as he spoke of getting a little group together to climb to EBC to support some very special people, I've been in awe. In awe of the community spirit & strength to support Jeff & Carly & their gorgeous children Charlie & Zara and with this special group of young men who have taken on the challenge. May your efforts help find a cure.
