Kilimanjaro 2024

On Monday 30th September Dave Bolton will be leading a team of 8, on a 10 day expedition to attempt to summit Mt Kilimanjaro. 

Mt. Kilimanjaro is located in Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain above sea level in the world: 5,895 m (19,341 ft) above sea level and about 4,900 m (16,100 ft) above its plateau base. It is the highest volcano in Africa and the Eastern Hemisphere.

Kilimanjaro is the fourth most prominent peak on Earth.


The expedition, aptly named 'Summiting Against all Odds,' is more than just a climb. It's a testament to Dave Bolton's remarkable journey of courage and determination in the face of severe adversity.

20 years ago Dave survived a near fatal motorcycle accident where he was crushed by a 23-ton truck and told he would never walk again.

10 years ago Dave was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour and in 2015 he was given a 3 month life prognosis with a Glioblastoma.

Team fundraising
Pulse Press Lymph 12 Pro Compression Therapy Unit

Ahead Of The Game Foundation would like to fundraise £6000 to purchase the best Lymph compression unit and relevant compression garments to offer FREE therapy to those diagnosed with cancer to improve their quality of life with Lymphoedema.

Lymphedema is swelling in various areas of your body that happens when something affects your lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system collects excess fluid, proteins and toxins from your cells and tissues and returns them to your bloodstream.

When your lymphatic system doesn’t work well, your body accumulates fluid and may begin to swell. The swelling typically affects your arms and legs, but it can affect other areas of your body, too. Lymphedema also increases your risk of developing an infection where you have the condition.

Cancer or cancer treatment can affect the fluid drainage channels of the lymphatic system. Fluid then doesn't drain in the normal way, so the area swells.


About 1 in 5 people (20%) will have lymphoedema of the arm after breast cancer treatment that includes:

  • surgery to remove lymph nodes

  • radiotherapy to the lymph nodes


If lymphoedema is not treated, it may get worse. It can be painful and make it difficult to move your arm.
