LeBruin congratulates our Profunder colleague Rory McHugh on reaching the summit of Mount Everest


LeBruin extends our congratulations to our Profunder colleague Rory McHugh who has reached the summit of Mount Everest, having completed an expedition in aid of Rory’s Nepal School Project and Child Rescue Nepal. Rory completed the climb to raise much needed funds to build schools in off-the-beaten-track villages which have not yet recovered from the 2015 earthquake in Nepal.

Throughout his expedition, Rory wrote a weekly blog article for the Irish Times, detailing the trials and tribulations of his climb. The blog posts provided readers nationwide with a glimpse into his extraordinary journey.

Commenting on his achievement, Rory said “Having the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of legends and finally make the summit just before 10am on the 26th May while experiencing total whiteout and unexpected storm conditions was an amazing experience. There were highs and lows and lots of challenges during our 2 months in the high Himalaya but knowing all the support I had from back home and that we were raising money to build schools for those less fortunate always kept me going. After two months in a tent, it’s also great to be home!”
