Mount Isa Locals Train For Everest Base Camp
Raising money for Police Legacy QLD
Four Mount Isa locals, Margaret Rogers, Kym Lynch, Dean Hanrahan, and Renee Hanrahan have completed Everest Base Camp after doing their training here in Mt Isa.
The group raised over $20,000 for Police Legacy Queensland, which supports the families of police officers who have passed away on duty or from terminal illness.
They completed their training around town, doing laps of Telstra hill and the hills around Ryan Road.
The funds will support the education expenses of 67 children and provide for an annual trip with other Legacy families.
So, would they recommend the trek?
"I absolutely recommend the trek! If you have an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone, to take on new experiences, and grow…go and see what you are capable of!," said Renee.
