Caedens Climb Up Ben Nevis

Caeden's Story

Caedens was born 12 weeks premature and was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. With a difficult start to live - now 6 years on - Caeden feels very lucky to have had all the care and support he has had; that he wants to give back! His mission is to challenge himself to walk up Ben Nevis! Money raised will be going to help others just like him who have cerebral palsy. Caeden wants his journey to be spread far and wide.

When Caedens mum contacted Summits asking if we could help with his mission. We were delighted to assist and donated a Vango Tigres 500 tent which will comfortably sleep him and his family.

Ben Nevis Info

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles, the summit rises to 1,345 metres above sea level. Ben Nevis stands at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to the town of Fort William. It can take roughly 7- 9 hours to complete.

Ben Nevis Facts

An ancient giant of the land, Ben Nevis was once a massive active volcano which exploded and collapsed inwards on itself millions of years ago. 

The name itself has two translations from the ancient Gaelic language, meaning 'mountain with its head in the clouds', thanks to its iconic mist-shrouded peak, or it can also mean 'venomous mountain' 

We can’t wait to see Caeden complete this walk we know this brave little trooper will conquer Ben Nevis with no problem at all. The Summits Team will be cheering him on!!!!
