Supporter Stories

Every single participant is taking on this challenge for their own special reasons. On this page we've shared some stories and experiences of incredible Skyscraper Challenge participants.

Meet Jess, a Tommy's Supporter

“Myself and my wife Jules have suffered four miscarriages in the past two years. I personally have had three and Jules has had one.

Back in January, when we were in the depths of grief and lost all trust in the world around us, I knew that I had to do something proactive. I needed something good to focus on and that’s when I looked up fundraising for Tommy’s. The work they do is incredible, and I wanted to give back in some way. I saw the London Skyscraper Challenge and knew that that’s what I wanted to do.

I am petrified of doing this challenge, but nothing can be as scary as pregnancy after recurrent miscarriage and I’ve managed that! Bring on the climb!”

Meet Lisa, A Guide Dogs' Supporter

“Guide Dogs have changed my life completely and helped me get my independence back after my Ushers Diagnosis. I have a whole new life full of adventure, love, confidence, and fun. I’ve learnt not to be afraid of my sight loss but to embrace it, and by doing challenges like the Skyscraper Challenge, I can show the world that my deafblindness will never stop me living life to the fullest.”
