Story

On Saturday 12th May, three teams from the Royal Opera House will be taking on the challenge of Thunderwalk - completing a route of 54 miles in just 24 hours, crossing the highest peaks in the Brecon Beacons and South Wales - Pen Y Fan (886m), Corn Du (873m), Cribyn (795m) and Fan Y Big (719m).

Whilst we are all excited about taking on the challenge, we are also looking to raise sponsorship for our charity - ACT and Children's Hospices UK. They ensure that children and young people who are not expected to live to reach adulthood are given the best care and support for however long they need it.

So here's hoping that you can dig deep and sponsor however much you are able to. We will hopefully upload training photos as the months go by, so check back here to see how we are progressing.
