Scaling new heights for charity
A 19-strong team from Ramtech – including several members of the WES team - will be attempting the challenging national 3 Peaks Challenge to raise funds for some deserving causes - and to give all those involved a massive personal challenge!
The famous Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales. The Ramtech team will be aiming to do all three ‘back to back’ within (hopefully) a single 24-hour period, with darkness being a real challenge!
The total walking distance is 23 miles and the total ascent is 10,052ft - twice the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, over a similar total walking distance.
The three mountains the team will be hiking up – in order – include:
- Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1,345m)
- Scafell Pike, in England (978m)
- Snowdon, in Wales (1,085m)
The five charities the team will be raising funds for include MacMillan, Marie Curie, the Teenage Cancer Trust, Forever Stars and Stonebridge City Farm. All do incredible work in their fields, from a community inner-city farm to terminal illness nursing care. Some of the team have really personal connections and stories related to some of these charities and we will be sharing some of these running up to the event.
