Good luck, Astrid!

Townsville Woman Trekking Mt Everest This Week For Her Mum Astrid Neiberding

Astrid Neiberding lost her mum to Leukaemia in 2016, after an 18 month battle.

Treatment included a Bone Marrow Transplant in Brisbane and undergoing chemotherapy in Townsville.

It was all going to plan and Astrid’s mother was in remission, but sadly she had a relapse shortly after the transplant. 

To celebrate her mum’s life, Astrid will trek to Mt Everest Base Camp this week while raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.

It has been a long road of training for the William Ross State High School Guidance Officer.

“Training has included 3-6 hour sessions of Mt Stuart -every weekend for past three months- and Castle Hill with an elevation training mask,” explains Astrid.

Astrid's love of adventure has driven her throughout her extensive training regime. 

William Ross SHS have been a huge support system for the local woman, adding $500 to her fundraising goal of $4000.

Currently Astrid has raised $6140, you can support her by donating here.
