Tom isn’t heading up on his own; he will be joined by a group of friends that he went to school with. Their first day will take them up Ben Nevis (Scotland, 1345m) and ending the day by travelling 4 hours south to Scaffell Pike. Day two starts with climbing Scaffell Pike (England, 978m) and driving a further 4.5 hours south for day threes climb of Snowdon (Wales, 1085m).
Time to hit you with some facts:
• Total drive will cover over 1250 miles and be over 20 hours
• They will be walking for a targeted 19 hours, covering 26 miles and rising 3000m
Normally these 3 peaks are one in rapid succession, in just 24 hours but Tom is saving that challenge for another year. ;)
As fun as it all sounds, Tom isn’t just doing this for a bit of fun…
“Whilst it is fun for us we realise this is a great opportunity to raise money for a great cause. Cancer affects way too many people and any money can help them get closer to a cure. Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research and the more help thy get, the closer to a cure they become.
Please if you can, contribute to the great cause that is Cancer Research UK, and please share a link to this page so others may have the opportunity to donate too."
We wish Tom ALL the luck with his challenge and look forward to seeing the photos!
