Max Stainton-Parfitt, a man with cerebral palsy, achieved an extraordinary feat by making history as he climbed Everest with the help of a ten-member team and a horse to carry him part of the way. His incredible journey is documented in “My Everest,” where Max shares his mission to undertake the first-ever trek of its kind, despite facing significant challenges along the way.

Max had always dreamed of embarking on this adventure, but never thought it would be possible. However, his experience of riding horses from a young age gave him the idea that it could be done. With his wife Candy and the team he carefully selected, Max and his trusty horse Rocky set out towards Everest Base Camp.

Despite encountering obstacles and moments of doubt, Max persevered. Rocky, who formed a special bond with Max, left him walking for a significant portion of the journey due to safety concerns. Max faced “incredible pain” and questioned his motivations, but he never gave up. Candy, too, had her concerns about Max’s well-being as they made their way to base camp.

Finally, after enduring hardships, Max and his team reached their destination, achieving a historic feat. Max described the moment as “utter elation” and “wonderment.”

Max’s journey is a testament to the indomitable human spirit and the power of determination. It is an inspiring story of overcoming challenges, pushing boundaries, and achieving the seemingly impossible. Max’s courage and perseverance serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration to others, proving that with determination and the right support, anyone can achieve their dreams, regardless of the challenges they may face.
