A little about ben nevis!

Ben Nevis (Scottish Gaelic: Beinn Nibheis, pronounced [peˈɲivəʃ]) is the highest mountain in the United Kingdom and the whole of the British Isles. It is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to the town of Fort William.

As is common for many Scottish mountains, it is known both to locals and visitors as simply the Ben.[1][2] It attracts an estimated 100,000 ascents a year,[3] around three-quarters of which[4] are made using the well-constructed Pony Track from Glen Nevis on the south side of the mountain. For climbers and mountaineers the main attraction lies in the 700-metre (2,300 ft) high cliffs of the north face; among the highest cliffs in the United Kingdom, they harbour some classic scrambles and rock climbs of all difficulties, and are one of the principal locations in the UK for ice climbing.

The summit, at 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level, features the ruins of an observatory, which was permanently staffed between 1883 and 1904. The meteorological data collected during this period are still important for understanding Scottish mountain weather. C. T. R. Wilson was inspired to invent the cloud chamber after a period spent working at the observatory.

So again guys i know alot of people here at ats have a heart so dig deep and help raise money for a good cause
thanks, peace and love to you all

They've known the cure of cancer for a long time. No amount of money is going to make them release it.

What you are doing is great, but I would rather give the money directly to cancer sufferers.

EDIT: If you truly want to find one of the cures for cancer, speak to cancer survivors that have used alternative treatments. It won't take you long.

I agree, giving money to big organizations is just not up my street.

I would rather give money to a single person and be able to see how it makes a difference to them.

And yes, i too believe they already have a cure for cancer. And probably many other diseases. I've heard of ancient plant remedys being used and working very well.
