Filipino cyclist attempts to climb Jebel Jais nine times for children with cancer


Several advocates worldwide are creating ways on how to execute and gather funds for their philanthropic services. Some will do their fundraising through concerts or even selling collectibles and products. However, some advocates are extending their help through sports and fitness activities. 

A group of cyclists will raise funds through an attempt to climb nine times in Jebel Jais for 24 hours non-stop ride, which is equivalent to the height of the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest. The event is called LifeSpark Fitness EVERESTING 2021. 

The said event is a campaign that will support the children with cancer whose families cannot afford treatment. The proceeds of the campaign will support Al Jalila Foundation. 

Building hope and dreams

The Everesting event will be headed by Danny “Coach Dan” Cordero, a Filipino Cyclist, an Ambassador of Dubai Fitness Challenge, and the founder of LifeSpark Cycling and LifeSpark Fitness.


The Everesting climb will be participated by 25-30 cyclists. Out of these numbers, only four people will attempt the said nine times climb.  

The event aims to help children who are suffering from cancer. According to the team, “We are Everesting to help young lives touched by cancer. Childhood cancer is often overlooked as it does not seem possible, or fair, that children suffer this illness.” 

“No parent should ever lose a child,” they added. 

The charity campaign will start on November 25 at 4am and it will expectedly end on November 26, 6am.
