31 RCOG supporters took on the gruelling Mount Rinjani in May and June to raise vital funds for global women’s health projects.
Two intrepid groups set out on a 9-day adventure to Bali and Lombok to climb 2 active volcanoes: Mount Batur which is 1717m high and Mount Rinjani which is 3726m high.
It was hot, it was dusty, and it was brilliant.
This was a massive challenge for everyone, but nothing compared to the challenge that some women face to access acceptable health care.
"This trip was about something much bigger than any of us, but something that’s so important to all of us, improving maternal mortality in less privileged countries. Collectively we have raised a huge sum of money, but most of us also had a personal reason for the climb or a spiritual journey to take." Testimony from Team RCOG Trekker
So far we have raised around £30,000. It is not too late to donate here: https://mydonate.bt.com/events/rinjani18
