Gillian’s Arctic Survival Challenge

Last updated: 28 September 2021

It’s so difficult when things change beyond our control.

It can be devastating, hard to accept or to move forward. That’s exactly what our participant Gill has had to face.

The change from being told she was well enough to go to Africa and climb Kilimanjaro and now, to being told that she cannot. That she will have to be on a liquid diet indefinitely and so the heat and humidity of Africa could put her health at a serious risk.

Such news could have led Gill to withdraw and to reinforce negative thinking.

However, Gill has not gone done this route. Quite the opposite in fact – she remains positive, optimistic and is now going to tackle the Arctic circle in a survival week. Get ready for some snowy scenes this February!
