Recently my Mum passed away unexpectedly back in New Zealand. She was an amazing woman and the best Mum a bloke could ever have. My father had Dementia and Mum cared for him during the final years of his life. It was very tough on both of us.
I saw a show on TV about what carers go through and it brought back memories of my childhood and what we went through when Dad was sick. A Charity called The Dementia Carers support group featured on it so I decided to do this for them in memory of my Mother. This charity gives the carers a lifeline, the possibility to meet others like them, time out from caring and a place where the sufferers get to have some fun in a safe environment.
It’s a hard run up the rough stone stairway from Fjellveien to Sandvikspilen. Sandviksfjellet is a mountain in Bergen, and one of the traditional seven mountains that surround the city centre of Bergen. The mountain is 392 m high.The track has a gradient of 315.5 meters and consists of 801 steps. Trust me its tough! – I finished it knackered but proud, and raised £3,500. My average HR was 187 BPM !!!
