Most people choose to support local charities by donating online or attending fundraisers every now and then – but that just isn’t enough for this Maltese pilot, who has committed to going the extra mile (and another few thousand) to help those in need.

27-year-old George Attard will be venturing to Nepal this September for a two-week trek, ascending 5,364 meters summit to the Mount Everest base camp, and it’s all for a great cause.

Apart from the thrill and challenge of climbing one of the world’s highest and deadliest mountains, George has dedicated this adventure to help collect funds for the Inspire Foundation in Malta.

“I am aware of just how blessed I am in life and I feel this relentless hunger to help out where needed. The team at Inspire Foundation do a stellar job, and this is my way of giving a helping hand,” George said on the Inspire website.

George has been actively involved in the Inspire Foundation for a while now, carrying out training sessions at the swimming pool and helping children who attend therapy sessions.

In undertaking this venture, George hopes to support the children and people of Inspire particularly those afflicted by disabilities.

“Helping out Inspire Foundation is my greatest motivation when things get tough. I choose to make a difference, no matter how small.”

As you can imagine, scaling the side of the world’s highest peak isn’t an easy task and requires a lot of mental and physical preparation, featuring a lot of ‘sweaty sessions’, according to his interview on TVM. 

Although it may be his toughest challenge yet, George is no stranger to the world of mountain climbing, having already conquered Mount Toubkal in Morocco, standing at height of 4,000 meters.

George will be funding the expedition himself, with any additional proceeds going to the charity.
