Hollie, Annette and Caroline take on the Three Peaks Challenge
On 15th September 2012 intrepid EACH supporters Hollie Mason, Annette Mitchell and Caroline Whitehead took on the Three Peaks Challenge. In 24 hours they hiked 24 miles, ascending 10,000 feet and reaching the summit of the 3 highest mountains in the UK – Scafell Pike, Snowdon and Ben Nevis. As if that wasn’t enough, they also had to drive 450 miles between the peaks to complete the challenge.
The adventurous trio all work at Addenbrooks Hospital and wanted to help local children who use EACH’s services. They aimed to raise £1000 but actually smashed their target, raising a fantastic £1721 including gift aid.
Annette said “The satisfaction of completing the challenge in 24 hours was amazing. It was no picnic - the distance, the climbing and the sleep deprivation made the event so tough. But there is nothing like setting your mind to do something and achieving it! What has made it even more worthwhile is the fact that we have helped to keep EACH going through our fundraising.”
The ladies have promised to keep going with their challenges. Hollie said “Who knows what we will do next! One of the best bits (apart from the breakfast afterwards!), was doing the event together and achieving something together. We would recommend it to anyone!” Caroline added “but they must train, it’s no walk in the park! But if you dedicate yourself the feel-good feeling can’t be topped!”
