Adam was a fit and healthy 25-year old who on a trip to Peru lost his life to altitude sickness which developed following a 15-hour bus trip to the city of Cusco (you can read his story here).
Speaking to the media at a special presentation event at the Sport and Exercise Science Laboratories in Eastbourne, Jeannet Savory from Para-Monte said: “Adam would be very proud. He has been the driving force behind us over the past five years. We are determined to see more global awareness of this condition.”
Welcoming the donation, Ash Wilmott from the Sport and Exercise Science Consultancy Unit said: “Many people only associate altitude sickness with things like mountaineering. But it can also affect people on things like skiing and walking trips, as well as people like Adam who was simply taking a bus tour journey.
