Thank you so much to everyone who took on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge on Saturday 2nd June.
17 amazing walkers setting off from Horton in Ribblesdale at 7.30am to tackle the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge under the guidance of David Wilson from Experience Northumberland, who has led this walk for us for 3 years now!
Yorkshire’s 3 highest peaks – Pen-y-ghent, Whernside & Ingleborough – 25 miles, 3 peaks, all in a target time of 12 hours!
Raising vital funds for Sunshine & Smiles – Leeds Down Syndrome Network.
Despite a damp and cloudy day, everyone completed the walk safely and agreed it was a fantastic, if tough challenge!
Our favourite quotes from the day:
‘I love these walks because I get to know new people’
‘I didn’t think it would be this hard’
‘I feel like I have conquered the world’
So far the 3 Peaks Challenge Fundraisers have raised a combined total of £1837.50 .. could you help us get to £2000!!??
