Run for Sanjiwani

Run Everest 2012 - On May 29 2012 a mix of local and international runners will gather to embark on one of the world's ultimate challenges. During the 42.2km race, they will run past the highest Glaciers and Moraines in the world, pass many monasteries, cross suspension bridges, meander through the Rhododendron Forest and Wild Orchard Grove.

If you haven't already guessed this high altitude marathon commemorates the historical ascent of Mount Everest by Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary on May 29, 1953. The adventure begins at Everest Base Camp (5362m) with the course weaving through one of the the most beautiful landscapes in the world inhabited by legendary sherpa climbers.

Two of these runners are Louise Edwards and Cathy Emerson. Louise and Cathy are thrilled (and scared) to take on the challenge of running through this harsh yet beautiful course. They are running for the personal challenge but also to raise awareness and support for the Sanjiwani Hospital which is located in the remote mountainous village of Ghandruk. Prior to the hospital being established in 2009, villagers would have to trek for 7 hours to the nearest road then take a 2 hour drive before reaching the nearest medical aid point.

The Sanjiwani Hospital is run by the Public Health Mission Nepal (SPHMN) which operates purely on donations and is assisted by Sanjiwani Australia Inc. Sanjiwani Hospital desperately needs your support, no matter how large or small, to continue to operate.
