Three Peaks Challenge 2019 takes place between Friday 11 - Sunday 13 October with 50 past and present cricket players, commercial partners and stakeholders taking on the gruelling walk, which will see fundraisers climb three mountains in three days.
The physically demanding weekend will see the fundraisers summit Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in the space of three days over the course of the weekend. In total, that amounts to 26 miles walked and 3,407m climbed in three different countries.
Argentex, the foreign exchange specialists, have proudly partnered with the Three Peaks Challenge with all money raised will go towards two very worthy sporting charities in the form of the Professional Cricketers' Trust and Tom Maynard Trust.
The Professional Cricketers' Trust is professional crickets leading charity, which helps current and former players and their immediate families, when they have fallen on hard times.
A number of beneficiaries have chosen to speak out about their experience of receiving support from the Trust, including Tom Smith who is taking on the demanding trek in memory of his late wife.
Whilst the Professional Cricketers' Trust supports players during and after their playing days, the Tom Maynard Trust aims to educate young people in the emerging stages of their sporting career. The organisation aids the development of aspiring sportsmen and women by way of bursaries, provision of equipment and support for overseas placements, amongst other priorities, which include educating young sportspeople of the risks associated to top level sport.
Both charities are extremely worthy causes who look after and support professional cricketers when they need it most so please do dig deep and support the fundraisers who are set to test their bodies in scaling the notoriously tough Three Peaks.
