The deed is done and the challenge has been conquered!
It took 26 hours and 11 minutes to ride 24 repetitions of a road climb in the Blue Mountains Ontario to reach 8,848 vertical meters of climbing in one ride, with no sleep, tp record an official Everesting.
As of June 26th, supporters have donated just over $2,600 to help families in Eastern Europe climb out of poverty and build brighter futures.
Each donation helped keep the pedals turning and keep James Carroll, Mission Without Borders Canada's National Director, motivated to keep climbing over the 26-plus hours.
"Thank you to everyone that donated and supported me in my Everesting. It was probably the most physically and mentally challenging adventure I've taken on. I am so happy to be able to raise awareness for MWB here in Canada and raise even more support for the families we serve."
So now that the challenge has been successfully completed, is James done seeking new adventures?
"No way!", James says. "I'm already dreaming up my next big adventure. I will take a little break, but it won't be long before I'm back in the saddle."

Doing something 'fiendishly simple, but brutally hard'. There's something attractive about that challenge that appeals to my want to take tangible action and to do more to do good in this world", says James Carroll, National Director of Mission Without Border Canada as he describes the concept behind an upcoming fundraiser supporting families in need across Eastern Europe.
