Astute – the key sponsor in veteran’s Everest quest
Disability doesn’t have to be a life-limiting factor, and Hari Budha Magar is living proof of that. He is a man with a mission, and that mission is to become the world’s first double above-knee amputee to climb Mt. Everest.
But this goal is not just about personal achievement for Hari; it’s also about inspiring and changing perceptions around people with disabilities.
Hari’s journey began when he lost his legs while serving in the British Army in Afghanistan. But rather than giving up, he turned his disability into an opportunity to achieve something extraordinary. He has already climbed some of the world’s highest peaks, including Aconcagua in Argentina, Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and Elbrus in Russia. And now, he’s set his sights on the ultimate challenge: Everest.
But Hari’s goal is not just about personal glory. He’s also using his climb to raise funds for five amazing charities that have helped him on his journey. He’s aiming to raise the height of Mt. Everest plus two 00’s [£884,900], which is an ambitious target, but one that he’s determined to achieve.
Hari’s journey is an incredible example of what is possible when we refuse to let our limitations define us. He has turned his disability into an opportunity to achieve something truly remarkable, and has become an inspiration to people all over the world. If there’s one message that Hari’s climb sends, it’s that anything is possible if you have the determination and the will to succeed.
Astute continues to sponsor and encourage ex-service men and women to achieve tremendous feats through adversity. We have supported individuals like Hari and entities like #AFPST for many years and it truly inspires everyone at Astute to look forwards with positivity and motivation. As Key Sponsor, Astute wishes Hari success in his endeavours to raise the height of Everest and hopefully create a platform for many others to follow.
All funds raised will be split equally between the five charities named below:
This British charity provides aid to Gurkha veterans, Gurkha widows, their families and the wider community in Nepal.
This British military charity guarantees that wounded veterans are not failed, forgotten or left to fend for themselves. It helps them rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support.
This special forces charity offers both physical and mental support to injured military or Emergency Services’ personnel and pushes them to break their own boundaries through adventure and get their confidence back.
This charity helps support the recovery of injured soldiers and veterans, by building their confidence and self-belief through golf, or helping them attain a career in the golf industry.
This organisation helps raise funds for sport, challenge and adventure in the armed forces community, making pivotal sporting challenges more accessible.
