In July 2013 Sano Babu Sunwar and Alex Ledger will be competing in the Red Bull X Alps, which is one of the toughest multi sport events in the world. On May 21st 2011, Babu launched a tandem paraglider from the summit of Mount Everest with his guide Lakpa and in doing so they became the first people ever to do so. For this amazing feat they were awarded the National Geographic 2012 Adventurers of the Year Award and Babu has now been invited to compete in the Red Bull X Alps in 2013. The Red Bull X Alps, which takes place every 2 years, is a gruelling race in which 30 athletes must paraglide, run or walk more than 850kms in less than 10 days from Salzburg to Monaco. Any donation will be much appreciated and will go towards covering the costs of the challenge!
