Linda say’s Hi to everyone who said “gambatte kudasai” as she adventured up and down Mt Fuji in aid of Dyscover– She reached the summit 3888 metres at 5 am on Friday 14th August. We are so thankful to Linda for taking on this challenge to benefit us at Dyscover.
‘It was FREEZING and very windy and we could hardly stand up! But I made it! It was a big challenge, the path was very steep, and being volcanic it was loose stones and rocks, but the mountain guide who led our group set a slow and steady pace with frequent stops to gain breath! I was by far the oldest but I kept up OK!
It was a truly once in a lifetime experience and I am SO glad I went for it……I am tired and have a few aches today but can feast in many memorable moments and especially the moment I reached the summit…..a dream come true. THANK YOU again for being part of this journey with me, Love Linda’
PS If you are one of those who wanted to wait to see if I could actually achieve this – it’s not too late if you’d still like to give – the account is still open.
