JIMMY and Nath from Hobart’s Hit 100.9 has become the very first radio show to ever broadcast from the summit of kunanyi/Mount Wellington.
The special broadcast was delivered in preparation for Nathan Roye who, just days following the broadcast, began the climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
This was done alongside his partner Meg Draffin, who suffers from CF herself.
Ms Draffin also hopes to become the first Australian with Cystic Fibrosis to summit Kilimanjaro – the world’s tallest free-standing mountain.
The couple have already raised $45,000, which will go towards CF and the children’s hospital in Westmead.
To prepare for the climb, Jimmy & Nath decided to take advantage of the mountain in our own backyard, brave the freezing degrees and the snow and do the show from the very top.
Nath said the experience has made him feel prepared for the climb ahead.
“We did this to practice for climbing Kilimanjaro, we drove up the mountain, sat inside for most of it and ate Maccas – yep, I think I am ready,” he said.
Jimmy said he just really enjoyed the morning.
“I love mountains, they really ‘peak’ my interest – yes, that joke is HILL-arious.”
