CAPE TOWN - A Cape Town pro trail runner is reaching for great heights  all in the name of charity.

Veteran trail runner Christiaan Greyling has taken on the monumental challenge of summiting seven mountains in seven days - all in aid of a tremendous cause.

He's summiting seven mountains in seven days to raise money for young children with disabilities, who may never be able to do the same.

"So through climbing mountains we experience this amazing freedom and by doing this we get a chance to give other people freedom who can't walk who can't move and this is especially an awareness and a fundraiser for kids that are disabled or different abled. All the funds will go to the Lonwabo Project. It's for a school in Emfuleni," said Geyling.

So far Greyling's already summited Du Toits Kop peak in  Franschhoek, as well as Stellenbosch mountain and the list goes on.
