On Saturday 26th January 2019, Careys Civil Engineering Project Manager, David Moriarty, will attempt to conquer Argentina’s Mt Aconcagua – the highest mountain in both the Southern and Western Hemispheres. David will take on the 26-day challenge to scale this 6,960m mountain in support of Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
This momentous climb is the latest in a long line of challenges undertaken by members of Careys Civil Engineering’s One Nine Elms and Marble Arch Place project teams. These teams have partnered with Evelina London Children’s Hospital with the goal of raising funds for the facility, over the course of both projects.
Both teams have set a combined fundraising target of £25,000 for the hospital, which cares for children and adolescents across London and south east England.
Some of the previous challenges carried out by these project teams include last year’s Tough Mudder – London West obstacle course– successfully completed by a team of 12 from One Nine Elms and Marble Arch Place – and David’s nine-day climb, in June 2018, of Mt Elbrus in Russia’s Caucasus range.
Mt Aconcagua is the third of the Seven Summits – the tallest mountains in each of the seven continents – that David hopes to tackle before he turns 40.
Initially these climbs were targeted as a personal goal. But now that we have partnered with Evelina Children’s Hospital, the goal is to raise as much funding for this cause as possible. Please donate any amount you can for this amazing hospital and the lifesaving work they do.
