Chloe’s journey to the top of the world

4th April 2019

Dietitian and mountain-climbing powerhouse Chloe Adams is taking on Machu Picchu in just under a month’s time. The Machu Picchu mountain stands 2,430 meters (7,972 ft) high and poses quite a challenge. Hikers are advised to prepare for all four seasons due to the extreme weather at high altitude, they’re even encouraged to bring altitude sickness remedies!

Guts UK is a cause very close to Chloe’s heart, she has even self-funded the trip so that all proceeds will go directly to Guts UK, which will fund crucial research into gut disorders.

 

Why are you taking on Machu Picchu in support of Guts UK?

“I worked in the NHS for 8 years as a dietitian specialising in supporting those with chronic gut disorders. During that time, I saw the impact such disorders could have on a persons quality of life. I no longer work in the NHS, and work in policy for professional practice with The British Dietetic Association. Here, I will look forward to influencing dietetic practice to ensure good quality care is provided by dietitians to those who access dietetic services for gut disorders in the UK. I wanted to dedicate this challenge to all clients I supported during my time in the NHS.

Gut disorders can be debilitating and can take away a persons dignity. It was an honour and a pleasure for me to be able to give someone’s dignity back, and hear how I had changed a persons life. Your donation would support Guts UK fund research to improve treatment and the search for cure of gut disorders.”
