Tower 42 by Mike King
On 25th February at around 10.30am, five of us will ascend the 42 floors of Tower 42. All 920 steps. Last year, our James scaled the tower in a lung crushing 8.06. He's returning this year to try and beat himself (it's certainly a form of self punishment). The rest of us are Vertical Rush virgins so really don't know what to expect - 15 minutes at a steady pace is apparently very possible - but as long as we smash our fundraising target, we'll be happy.
And that's where you come in, dear readers and friends. Please sponsor Team Londonist in this mad endeavour. We promise you regular training reports and photos, commentary and possibly even some kind of jerky video footage to prove we did it. Most of all, we want to support Shelter in its aim to raise £250,000. Being homeless at this time of year, in this kind of weather really doesn't bear thinking about. Onwards, and most importantly, UPWARDS!
