What?

On Friday, 5 October, an EII team comprising Joanne Jeffreys, Katherine Chappell, Peter Vivian and Ben Grouse will take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge - Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough (24 miles (38.6km) / 1585m (5200ft) of ascent) in under 12 hours

Why? 

Tyler Reader was a friend of Ben's Son, Sebastian.  They used to play football together and would sit at the end of their Little Kickers lessons joking and sharing each others' snacks while their Dads predicted the weekend's football scores.  Tyler was an incredibly engaging, kind and friendly little boy who would always make people smile.

In November 2015, at just under three years old, Tyler was admitted to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) with an aggressive form of group A streptococcus and developed Sepsis.

Despite the efforts of the incredible team at GOSH, Tyler's little body couldn’t keep battling. It gave up after his sixth cardiac arrest, just as the team were preparing him for a heart and lung bypass.

Tyler’s memory and the joy he brought to so many lives on through his family and friends in the work they do for the Tyler Reader Brighter Future Fund.

The Tyler Reader Brighter Future FundThe aim of the fund is (i) to create a lasting legacy for Tyler by raising funds to help buy equipment to support the Children’s Acute Transport Service, or CATS team, who run an intensive care unit on wheels, transporting the sickest children from local hospitals to specialist children’s hospitals where they can receive the very best care, and (ii) continuing to work alongside GOSH and The UK Sepsis Trust to help raise the awareness levels of Sepsis within the UK and what symptoms to look out for both in young children, like Tyler, and in adults.
