Story

We are a group of friends and outdoor activity enthusiasts who like a challenge!

This year our team of 5 will take on the UK 3 peaks, including a constant relay run of the 450 mile journey between the mountains. Each member of the team will climb all mountains, and will each take turn in a 6 mile leg of the relay run. We will also drive ourselves on the route and be unsupported. Our target completion time is 3.5 days. The challenge begins on 15 May, and we travel to Fort William on 14th May 2014.

The team are spread throughout the UK (Don is in Scotland, Colin in Hull, Tom in Stourbridge and Hannah and Brian in Telford). Don is mountain based, Brian’s background is hiking, Tom is a serious downhill mountain biker. Hannah is new to the team this year, and Colin got roped in as he is Brian's brother and too daft to say no! Colin is recovering from back surgery last year and Brian had a serious back injury in 2007. We are also all on the wrong side of 30 (or 40).

The team are hoping to fundraise as much money as possible and are aiming to transform a number of children’s lives by finishing a number of equipment local appeals in their own local area.

Not only is their challenge not easy, nor is the fundraising and they are holding a number of fundraising activities with their friends and family. This is a community team challenge and you can sponsor them through this page, on an event or you can donate to a friend taking part in one of their fundraising events and this money will ALL STILL GO into their pot.

It is really important to the team, to change as many children’s live's in May as possible. Please donate as much as you can.
