Man Pushes Brussels Sprout Up A Mountain With His Face For Charity.

What’s the craziest thing you can think of that anyone’s every done for charity? Ok, got it? Well Englishman Stuart Kettell, has it beat. Last week, instead of doing a marathon or maybe walking across the country, he decided to push a Brussels sprout up Mount Snowdon (the highest mountain in Wales) using just his nose.

Yep, that’s right.

It took Kettell four days in total to complete his 3,560 foot journey crawling on his hands and knees. He wore special gloves, knee pads, and a face protector to ensure he didn’t injure himself. Kettell used a total of 22 different sprouts over the course of his adventure. His goal was to raise £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. According to his fund raising page he’s already achieved his goal!

Here is Kettell looking in high spirits.

Kettell’s friend hiked the journey along with him, and filmed the whole thing for a mini documentary they’re looking to release. Check out the trailer.
