Meet Anthony Nightingale, the Face of Courage!
On 2023 Nov 25, he will take up a huge challenge - to abseil from 1000ft at the iconic One Island East.
HK Vertical 1000 is not just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step out of their comfort zone, but also the chance to fundraise for a local charity - Outward Bound Hong Kong and its work to #FutureProofYOUth.
Listen to his story:
I am looking forward to HK Vertical 1000 which is supporting the excellent cause of raising funds for Outward Bound Hong Kong.
My first expedition of many to the high mountains of the world was to Kilimanjaro on trip organized by Outward Bound. I have always been impressed by their programmes and their work in the communities in which they operate.
While most of my life has been spent to business matters, one of my chief pleasures is trekking and climbing in the mountains where I have done many abseils in interesting places.
But definitely the highlight was the abseil down One Island East six years ago and I much look forward to repeating the experience.
