Former Royal Air Force instructor and father, Steve Graham, is climbing the world’s most dangerous mountains in the name of charity.

The 38 year old engineer from Darlington, England took on this task because his two sons, Sam (10) and Max (3) were both born prematurely and spent a lot of time in intensive care. Graham and his wife Hollie received so much help from Bliss that Steve wanted to give back. His plan is to donate £5,000 to Bliss – and is currently up to £1,470.

Graham’s latest climb was Alaska’s Mount McKinley, where Graham and his team had to turn back shy of the 18,000ft peak. The team ran out of food after a 12-day stand-off with the extreme weather conditions.
