My 12-year-old son Harrison is a Lead Participant in the 2019 Krazy Kosci Klimb.
This is a fundraising event to raise $320,000 for the Accessible Gym and Sports Program at the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for Harry and the other 18 participants he will be walking with, to achieve what may seem like the un-achievable!
They’ll be setting out early in the morning of Saturday 16th Feb 2019 from the Charlotte Pass base camp to climb the highest peak in Australia, Mount Kosciuszko!
The walk itself is 18.5 kms, and the climb is at 611 m. It takes most participants around 8 hours to complete.
Many children will be in converted wheelchairs or walking frames. Harry will be able to walk unaided but will find the climb challenging due to his low muscle tone and congenital heart disease.
Our very own Harrison Blacksell from Year 7 did the Krazy Kosci Klimb in Feb 2019, to raise funds for the Accessible Gym and Sports Program at Cerebral Palsy Alliance, and to give more independence to young adults living with a disability.

We ask for a minimum of $20pp to attend the class. All proceeds go directly to the Cerebral Palsy Alliance in Canberra. Go to https://www.humanhappiness.com.au/krazy-kosci-klimb and press the “DONATE” button at the bottom of the page. When you send your donation please comment with “Yoga class” and your name and the names of anyone else you may be paying for at the same time, so we can have you on our roll call as you arrive.
If you don’t manage to donate before the day, we can take cash/eftpos at the class.
We look forward to seeing you there!
We’re currently in training as a family and extended sponsor and support group, to ensure that we’re all able to support Harry in his quest to conquer the mountain!
Harry’s very excited about the climb and the journey leading up to it.
He has a very special friend in his Ginninderra Little Athletics’ group, named Andy, who’s coming along to encourage and boost Harry every step of the way.
Each team is asked to come up with a dress up theme, and we’ve decided that we will all go in Star Wars costumes. Harry will be Luke Skywalker, Andy will be his best mate and have his back, going as Han Solo, his sister Elizabeth will be Rey from “The Force Awakens” and I will be Princess Leia. We’re yet to find out what the other sponsors and the Cerebral Palsy staff member, who are also on “Team Harry” will choose. Watch this space for updates!
