Dear Supporter,

Welcome to the Climb Any Mountain update - we've got a packed issue for you! 

With over 247,000 people vying for a place in Europe's largest Marathon, we were very thrilled to have been given one of the coveted charity bonded places in the Virgin London Marathon for 2016. We are now looking for a running superstar to take up the challenge of running a metaphorical mountain (albeit 26 miles on the flat!) and raising funds to support our work.

"Can you imagine..? is the theme of our latest campain that is a leader to "The story of Thandi and Sarah", which highlights the differences between the lives of two young women living with intellectual disability in separate parts of the world. We hope you enjoy the short video that depicts their lives and the choices they have. 

As we start our preparations for the festive season (would you belive it, we are only a month away from Christmas!), if you are sending season's greetings to friends and family, then why not grab a pack of our popular specially designed Christmas Cards, available for purchase from our website again. 

We hope you enjoy this issue and if you have any comments or specific feedback on any of the articles, then we would love to hear from you. Drop us an email at info@climbanymountain.org.

P.S. Please support our 'Build a brick, build for change' fundraising campaign. A single donation or a regular pledge amount will go a long way to helping us to build for change and support people living with intellectual disability and mental illness in South Africa have choice and the right level of support for them as individuals.

Why our project is important to us

Services are not just beds, they are not simply houses, though having a roof available is vitally important. Services must be grasped as something other than bricks and mortar, or a place ‘to put the problem’.

This is a quote from behavioural specialist, Tony Osgood. It serves as the opening statement to our outline case for change - "A Snapshot …
