Climbing Mt Everest

A serviceman from Bedfordshire, UK who lost his hearing while on tour will climb Mount Everest starting April 11. Chris Gwilt was standing in front of a wall in Afghanistan when a rocket propelled grenade hit it. Gwilt got a cochlear implant later. His climb will raise funds for Walking with the Wounded, an organization that helps former servicemen and women, in an effort to help others wounded in battle received implants.
