Bring Me the Horizon Pair to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro to Raise Funds for Pediatric Care Unit
Team Rock reports that the musicians have decided to take on the challenge to help out the Friends of PICU organization after Fish's four-year-old son Eliot was recently treated at the Southampton Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for a brain hemorrhage. It is their goal to raise £100,000 (approximately $130,000) for the charity.
Fish's son was taken to the hospital in the U.K. where he was put in a medically induced coma before being transferred to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at the Southampton hospital. The keyboardist says, "While in the hospital, I decided that I would focus myself on doing something positive for the ward and trying to raise enough money to pay for a new bed for them. Oli asked immediately if he could join me and help raise as much awareness for this cause as possible. In January, we will fly to Tanzania where we will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro over the course of eight days."
The musicians have launched a Just Giving page where fans can donate to their climb. Check it out here. Fish adds, "In terms of Eliot's recovery we still have a very long way to go and we are taking each day at a time, however he is still alive to fight, he is breathing on his own and we are seeing small improvements every day. He is a little fighter and has shown amazing signs of recovery already, even at this early stage. We owe that completely to the Nurses, Doctors, Neurologists and staff at PICU."
