Danger in the Dolomites

September 07, 2014  |   Charity,Fundraising,News,Press   |     |   0 Comment

To many Venice conjures up an image of an exquisite city that seems miraculously built on water. Tackling the nerve-racking mountain routes, Ockrims Olympians will still need a head for heights and nerves of steel to handle traversing the many sheer edges on this their most challenging to date.


Jeremy Ockrim will once again be leading the “famous “Ockrim’s Olympians on their Danger in the Dolomites charity challenge.


For anyone growing up in the latter part of the 20th Century, the name Cortina is synonymous with a brand of Ford motor car, rather than a chic Italian mountain resort. High in the Dolomites, Cortina d’Ampezzo Cortina lies at the centre of the Valle d’Ampezzo and has been featured in a number of films, including “Cliffhanger” and “For Your Eyes Only.



For their 2014 charity challenge, raising awareness and funds for those suffering from urological conditions, twelve Ockrim’s Olympians consisting of  Consultants, Professors and Registrar’s from the field of Urology at University College London Hospital along with a patient from UCLH will attempt to cycle from Cortina d’Ampezzo all the way to Venice.


Please help Ockrim’s Olympians to help you by sponsoring  them  on this exciting challenge.
