Jo Gambi became Rock UK’s first Rock Star Ambassador in April 2010. When asked why she agreed to be the first Rock Star – Set upon the rock solid foundations of fun, friendship and faith, the ROCK UK team transform lives through outdoor adventure! These life changing experiences that they provide, along with their passion and dedication to the development of young people is why I wholeheartedly support ROCK UK.
In 2005 Rob and Jo Gambi became the first married couple to climb the 7 Summits (the highest peak on each continent) and ski to the Poles. Rob was also the first Australian, and Jo the first female, to achieve this.
Rob is the first cancer survivor to climb the 7 Summits, and Jo is the second British woman to have climbed Everest’s North/North East Ridge.
Together Rob and Jo hold the Guinness World Record for the fastest (and first) ’7 Summits’ ascent (both lists) by a married couple, and Jo holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest 7 Summits’ ascent by a female.
Jo has written about their adventures in her inspirational book Holding On, and as a gifted motivational speaker Jo is passionate about encouraging, challenging and empowering her audiences.
