Hailey hits the summit
Hailey on her way to Tanzania
Congratulations to Hailey and Jacqueline Paynter who successfully reached the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
At 24 years of age, Hailey Paynter was diagnosed with an auto immune disease known as CRION (Chronic Relapsing Inflammatory Optic Neuropathy) – a degenerative condition that could ultimately cause her to lose all of her sight.
Last month, Hailey and her mother, who has acute deafness, hiked to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa to raise awareness of deafblindness and some much needed funds for Able Australia.
After a 16 hour day and climbing through the night, Hailey and Jacqueline reached the summit on 28 September. By all reports there was plenty of laughter, tears, dancing and bonding throughout the journey.
