Hello there, my name is Joshua Tiplady and I am from Sheffield. I have grown to love the mountains and I have goals that I want to complete in my life. One of them is climbing Kilimanjaro, standing at 19,341 (5,895 meters) and with the risk of altitude sickness, it’s a big goal, but with enough training it’s possible. To read my blogs, please click on Preparing for my Journey.
Our city is in crisis, 8 people have been stabbed to death in 2018 alone and if we take no action it will only get worse, so this is why I am climbing Kilimanjaro in 2020 to help raise awareness about knife crime, and to raise money for youth work. If you want to support me doing this with my Dad please visit our Gofundme page: https://www.gofundme.com/sheffield-bury-the-knives-not-lives
