Everest '88 - the 25 year anniversary, in aid of brainstrust
One of the world's leading mountaineers, and brainstrust patron, Stephen Venables is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his ascent of Everest and raise funds for our work to support UK brain tumour patients and carers.
Join us in London on the 14th March 2013 to hear first hand about the adventure, first hand, from Stephen and the team that conquered Everest, without supplementary oxygen, and unlocked an 'impossible' new route.
In 1988 Stephen Venables became the first Briton to climb Everest without supplementary oxygen. He reached the summit alone, after climbing with a small American-Canadian team, by a new route up the gigantic Kangshung Face.
Now to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this ascent, Stephen and his fellow climbers are organising a celebratory evening on 14th March 2013 at the Royal Geographical Society to raise funds for our work to help brain tumour patients regain control of their lives.
The evening will be the first time that the whole expedition team have reunited since 1988. It really is such an exciting opportunity to hear about their spectacular feat. There are tickets available for the talk, and also for the dinner.

The evening is sponsored by Rolex (main sponsor) and Apter International.
