He will spend about 15 hours on a treadmill set at maximum incline in a bid to raise money for Save the Children during its annual book sale on August 15 and 16 at UWA�s Winthrop Hall.

Mr Hudson is nearly halfway through his attempt to climb the seven summits, the highest peak on each continent, by 2017 and raise $250,000 in the process.

He has already tackled mounts Kilimanjaro, Kosciuszko and Elbrus, with Everest being his final climb in two years� time.

�I wanted to do something locally for the project, bring the excitement to Perth so to speak,� he said. �As there is nothing here that even resembles a mountain, it meant getting creative.�
