Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Myself, Alex and Rob are challenging ourselves and climbing the 3 highest peaks in the UK!! We will be starting the challenge on Saturday 18th August 2018 beginning Ben Nevis' ascent at 4pm and completing Snowdons' descent at 4pm the following day! The challenge covers 25 miles of undulating terrain with a total ascent of 11,178 ft, all of this is to be completed within 24 hours including the travel between 3 countries!! 

We are doing this to raise awareness of Menkes Syndrome a very rare genetic condition which affects little boys . There is currently no cure for this illness and many young lives are taken in early infancy. Along with raising awareness we would like to smash our target and raise lots of money for the charity which supports families in the Uk and also the ongoing research in America.

Every single penny counts ... so please dig deep and donate all you can!!

Many , many , many thanks!!!!!!
