Our team comprising of; Phil Collis, Martin Slinn, Jack Slinn, Johnny Slinn, Joe Palmer-Soady, Jack Savage and I will be embarking on The Three Peaks National Challenge on June 1st 2019. This entails ascending the three highest peaks in the respective countries of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours. The total distance walked is estimated at 42 kilometres, with a total ascent of 3,000 metres - not to mention 12 hours of driving!
We are raising money for the British Heart Foundation's research and we'd be incredibly grateful for your support in reaching at least our £650 target. The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures.
The BHF is a charity personal to each member of our team, with family and friends impacted by heart problems.
For instance, one of our team members, Phil Collis is a stroke survivor. Additionally, Joe Palmer Soady's Grandfather suffered with vascular dementia as well as my late Grandfather Tom Slinn.
In preparation for combat in mainland Europe during World War Two, Tom trained in Fort William Scotland as part of the 6th Airborne Division. With this in mind, we feel as though this challenge would not only aid the fantastic research in tackling dementia, but also a fitting way to remember his life.
