raised of £2,000 target by 103 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,146 to help Robert Howard seek alternative treatment abroad due to his diagnosis of a terminal high grade glioblastoma brain tumour

    Preston, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 31st May 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Myself, along with 3 friends (Will Magowan, Anton Tsarev & Jason Wadsworth) are taking part in a challenge which will physically push us to the limit!

    We are going to complete the UK 3 peaks (Ben Nevis > Scafell Pike > Snowdon) with a cycle between each one. We shall climb the highest mountain in Scotland...cycle 250 miles, climb the highest in England......then cycle another 188 miles and climb the highest in Wales. We aim to complete the challenge in 6 days and have a very difficult and demanding itinerary ahead of us, completing the challenge without any support vehicles.

    We are raising money to support my friend Rob Howard who has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. The NHS offer no more treatment for him and we are hoping to raise as much cash as possible to send him for alternative treatment abroad where they can help to fight against this terrible illness.

    Saturday 12th May > Climb Ben Nevis (4,413ft) and cycle 51 miles to Crianlarich

    Day 2 > Cycle 93 miles to Abington

    Day 3 > Cycle 101 miles to Ambleside

    Day 4 > Climb Scafell Pike (3,209ft) and cycle 65 miles to Preston

    Day 5 > Cycle 90 miles to Llandudno

    Day 6 > Cycle 26 miles and then climb Snowdon (3,560ft)

    We would like as many people as possible to meet us at the bottom of Snowdon to climb the last peak with us an celebrate completing the challenge (Thursday 17th May). We will be meeting at the car park on Pen-y-Pass to start climbing at 10:00...postcode LL55 4NU.

    For a celebratory drink afterwards we shall meet at the Continental pub in Preston at 19:00...postcode PR1 8JP, all welcome.

    No donation would be too small and all will be massively appreciated :-)
