MS sufferer's mountainous goal gets closer


























Nicholas Allen may not be climbing any mountains at the moment, but he is raising funds for multiple sclerosis.

A Palmerston North man's goals may be high, but he's confident he'll get there, like he did with mountains in Nepal.

Nick Allen, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, has continued his fundraising efforts in New Zealand, after coming back from a trek through Nepal and up to some especially high peaks.

Allen spent about a month in India and Nepal, climbing the more than 6000-metre high Island Peak as part of his efforts to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis New Zealand.

Having been back in the country for a couple of months, Allen is still working towards his $20,000 goal.

Sitting just short of $6000, Allen recently held a fundraising dinner in Palmerston North, where he spoke about the struggles and triumphs of his arduous journey through Nepal.

Held at Rendezvous Restaurant, he raised $1300 for his goal: to set up a scholarship for MS sufferers to help them with their adventuring in the outdoors.

"I'm definitely getting there, I realise it might take about 18 months. Twenty-grand should be the point where it becomes self-sustaining," he said.

"I've been totally blown away by everyone's support."

Allen said he hoped he would be able to open up for applications from mid-year. Initially, the scholarship would be awarded once a year.

"I think my goal would be to have something available... for next summer."

Allen also held another fundraiser event in Wellington on Saturday and said he was hoping to run another similar event in Palmerston North next year.
