Climbing Spain's Highest Mountain for Kids with EB

Event dates: 8th July 2023 – 10th July 2023

Eloise & Kerry are raising money for DEBRA

Our story

Epidermolysis Bullosa is the most painful skin disease you've never heard of.

This bewildering condition means that children are born with skin as fragile as butterfly wings. They blister easily and undergo brutal daily dressing changes and medication to ease the pain. But, beneath all the bandages, creams and drugs they are just the same as any other kids, wanting to play, run and learn.

We- Kerry and Eloise- are by no means thrill seekers. The challenge of climbing Spain's highest mountain is pretty daunting- eeek!

Whilst not the most comfortable 3 days for us, it is nothing compared to the pain that kids with EB go through.

DEBRA are a fantastic support to families with EB. Their aim, through research, is to give future generations a life free from the pain of EB. Funds are desperately needed.

The money we raise - with your support- will help in many ways...from mind blowing scientific trials like gene therapy trials to the simple, such as providing much needed medication.

PS: (note from Eloise) Thankfully, our daughter Eve has a relatively mild form of this rare disease. Yes- dressing changes and regular painful blisters are part of daily life. But Eve is tough. She rarely complains and is very far from being a 'victim' of this bloody awful condition.

We feel fortunate compared to so many other families who suffer with EB. So, if we can collectively raise awareness and a bit of cash to ease that suffering, then we are forever grateful to you xxx

Please see the link attached to show you where your money will go to make a difference.

…we did it!

On day 3 we reached the summit of Mount Mulhacen, all 3,482 meters of her.

Lots of happy tears and high fives- till we remembered the 5 hour walk to descend 😆

All the support we received from YOU- our families and friends kept us going.

Every penny raised goes towards helping kids with EB butterfly skin lead a life free of pain. 🦋

Thank you all so much xxx
Kerry and Eloise ❤️

Day 2 update:
Today was tough- we ascended 500m in under 2k, but our training kicked in and got us through.

It looks like at least one toenail will be dropping sometime soon.🦶

On the plus side…Sierra Nevada is beyond. Tranquil at 3000 meters above sea. Cooler than day one.

But tomorrow is the biggie. Literally.

We climb to the summit of Mount Mulhacen in the morning.
But apparently it’s the descent that’s the most testing part…so wish us luck!

A glass of something cold will be enjoyed tomorrow evening…(if we make it 🙏😆🥂)

Lots of love to our wonderful friends and family who are supporting us ❤️
