Solicitors from Nottingham-based Fraser Brown will be striding out across three countries in just 24 hours as they take on the renowned Three Peaks Challenge in a bid to raise £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The team of 21 will be attempting to conquer the three highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon respectively - assisted by a support team of six. The challenge entails trekking a total of 26 miles and travelling more than 500 in less than a day.
The exciting challenge will begin on Saturday 21 August at 6am and the team will aim to finish by the same time on Sunday 22 August. Team leader Richard Wollacott, said, "The Three Peaks Challenge is becoming quite well known but that doesn"t mean it"s easy. Climbing just one of these mountains would be a challenge for most of us so doing three is a row will be particularly testing.
"With just an hour and a half allowance for mistakes we know it"s going to take real determination to get through but hopefully we"ll support each other and be driven forward in the knowledge we"re raising money for such a good cause."
All monies raised by the challenge will go to Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that provides practical, medical and financial support for those affected by cancer and pushes for better cancer care.
Richard added, "Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity close to all of our hearts at Fraser Brown. At some point we have all seen how cancer can so swiftly enter and affect the lives of those we love, without warning and seemingly without reason. We know we have set ourselves a tremendous challenge both in physical and fundraising terms but this will simply make it all the more rewarding when we succeed!"
The team is aiming to raise a total of £10,000 through personal and corporate donations. To pledge your support visit www.justgiving.com/FraserBrown3PeaksChallenge or contact John Tansur at Fraser Brown on 0115 9888 777 or email email@example.com.
