We're Taking Part In The National Three Peaks Challenge For Cancer Research
We’re taking part in the 3 Peaks Challenge for Cancer Research, our chosen charity because we’ve all lost someone to cancer or have people close to us that have lost someone to cancer or are battling it. Put simply we want to do our bit to help find a cure.
We are a group of friends, work colleagues and associates that have all been affected by cancer either directly or indirectly. We’re not super fit. In fact some of us are barely fit, but we wanted to find a challenge that had some substance when we’re asking people to part with their hard earned money to support us and our chosen charity. Shaving your head may raise a few quid but it’s not exactly challenging or asking too much of yourself to do it. The three peaks challenge means we need to climb up and down the highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales non-stop in a 24 hour period. Most of us are used to climbing the odd flight of stairs or at a push a ladder and so make no mistake this will be a challenge for all of us. As hard as we may find this we are acutely aware that in comparison to the people that have or live with cancer, this trip up and down 3 mountains will be a doddle.
Worldwide around 15 million people are diagnosed with cancer every year and it’s not selective about who it chooses or when it strikes. This disease needs a cure, it affects all of us so it’s up to all of us to find ways to raise the money that funds the research that finds the cure, otherwise it wont happen.
Please dig deep and help us to help cancer research.
