We are training and set to complete the phenomenal Snowdonia Challenge 2020. This is an epic three-activity team event. We will be raising money for Emmaus Hull- see more below on this fabulous charity and important cause.
We will be kicking off from the event base in Llanberis in the heart of Snowdonia, with a 20 mile cycle along country roads, we'll then swap our bikes for boots at the foot of Snowdon to trek the tallest mountain in England and Wales. After it’s back down we go to meet our bikes at the bottom. Once at Snowdon's foot, we'll be getting back into our cycling gear and into the saddle for a ten mile stretch to the shore of Llyn Gwynant.
Here, we will meet our Canadian canoes and conquer a course on the lake. Back on land, it’s time for our triumphant 10 mile pedal to the finish line.
Why are we doing this?
Emmaus is a homelessness charity with a difference. They don’t just give people a bed for the night; they offer a home, meaningful work and a sense of belonging.
For many people who have experienced homelessness, losing their
self-esteem can be the most damaging part of their experience. Being on their own, with no support around them can be soul destroying, leaving them feeling worthless.
Finding their way out of that situation isn’t easy, particularly when
the only options available are temporary fixes, offering a bed for the
night but little to occupy their days.
Emmaus is different because it provides a home for as
long as someone needs it, in an Emmaus community. This gives people the opportunity to take stock of their lives, deal with any issues they
might have, and often re-establish relationships with loved ones.
To do this, Emmaus rely on donations and volunteer work. We hope to make any difference we can by supporting this great cause, we are very grateful for everything and everyone we have in our lives and recognise that any one of us could end up in need of Emmaus support. Please support us on our epic journey to make a real difference to those that need it. Read more about the charity here: https://www.emmaus.org.uk/hull
