WHAT & WHY : Team ‘Safari Njema’ (Travel Well) will complete the National Three Peaks Challenge in 24 hours (‘Safari’) to commemorate first year anniversary since losing our Dad, Grandad, Husband, Friend to Pancreatic Cancer; we will be raising money for Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (PCRF) to help them fund more innovative research to improve the current 3% survival rate and ultimately find a cure. We welcome any donations.
- The event has been organised in true Dad / Grandad ‘Safari’ style : Conquer the 3 highest peaks in England, Wales & Scotland within 24 hours. The 24-hour time includes both walking time and travel between the mountains—approximately thirteen hours hill-walking and eleven hours driving.
- We will begin by touching the sea at Fort William, ascend and descend all three mountains, finishing the challenge by touching the sea at Caernarfon.
