The Foundation

The Millimetres 2 Mountains foundation was born following one persons realisation that you can choose your own path and a group of friends coming together to help others realise that dream.

Whether it be because of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression or overcoming a physical disability we believe in the healing power of purpose, progress and perseverance...

Our three pillars are the foundation of Millimetres 2 Mountains. They are woven into the fabric of everything we do, who we are and more importantly what we hope to offer others through our events, adventures and support programmes.

Purpose – Purpose is one of the cornerstones of happiness and a lack of it is often the catalyst for testing periods in peoples lives. Helping people find or rediscover purpose is an important part of what we do and why we like to challenge peoples pre-conceptions about themselves. By stepping outside their comfort zone and realising how much more they are capable of, suddenly a whole world of new possibilities presents itself.

Perseverance – The ability to stick something out for the greater good particularly in spite of difficulties, obstacles or discouragement. Perseverance is one of the most valuable character traits you can carry through life but becomes particularly poignant in times of hardship or change. At M2M we believe that perseverance can be nurtured through experience and our challenges are designed to do exactly that.

Progress – Purpose and perseverance lead to progress. Progress, no matter how small plays a crucial role in self-esteem and the ability to value yourself. Often too much time is spent planning and waiting for the right time rather than doing. Progress follows action and once things start to move forward you would be amazed at how quickly life can build momentum. The hardest part is to take that first step and that’s where we want to help. Small steps, big dreams.

Beneficiaries

Thanks to the fundraising in 2020 we are now in a position to offer our first beneficiary places on adventures in 2021. We will be taking applications for grants as well as working with other charities to offer what will be life changing experiences to people facing a difficult time in their lives.

* The trip, flights, accommodation transfers are all covered by the M2MF

Walk The Coast is open to all and there will be small grants available to cover costs of joining us on the walk.

Grant criteria

In an ideal world we would love be able to gift all of the places on our climbs but our beneficiary places are designed to make a real impact on somebody that truly needs it .In order to be considered for a M2MF grant it is important that you fit in to some but not all of the below criteria.

  • Suffering from a mental or physical health condition
  • Battling with an addiction
  • Not able to cover the costs of the trip yourself

If you are unsure if a M2MF grant is right for you then please contact Lois and she will be able to discuss what the Foundation is able to offer.

Development Programme

The M2MF's main ambition is for our expeditions to be that catalyst for change in somebody's life. However, we don't just want to stop there. We will offer a development programme to each beneficiary which will be designed around their needs to assist them post climb. This can be paying towards therapy, a life coach, career grants and much more.
