This June, five members of the Secura team will be walking 26 miles (mainly upwards) across the National Three Peaks to raise vital funds for London’s Air Ambulance charity.
Ollie, Ed, Dan Nichols, Neal and Sally will be taking on the challenge to climb the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales – Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon, with a total ascent of over 9,800 feet, within a 24-hour period.
This week, the team got kitted out to make sure they’re prepared for the terrain and changeable weather conditions on the three peaks.
Heavy duty walking boots, waterproofs and warm layers are all needed to tackle this challenge – and the team wants to put themselves in the best possible position to succeed. Next up, fitness training and a trial walk!
Since announcing this challenge at the start of March, we have had amazing support, managing to raise over £3,000!
Thank you to everyone who’s already donated towards this total – your support means a lot to us. To see how your donation will help, please visit londonsairambulance.co.uk.
This is an incredible start but we still have a long way to go to reach our fundraising target of £15,000 and your support is crucial to us succeeding at this challenge.
If you would like to sponsor the Secura team and support the incredible work that London’s Air Ambulance charity do delivering advanced trauma teams to critically injured people in and around London, please visit our fundraising page.
London’s Air Ambulance is a cause which is very close to Ollie and Eddie’s hearts and this challenge and the money that we raise is dedicated to the memory of their mum, Valerie.
Any sponsorship you can provide will be gratefully received, as will words of encouragement, support and advice which can be left as comments below.
In the run up to the challenge, we’ll be keeping you up-to-date with the team’s training and fundraising progress through our blog and on social media, so make sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Google+ for all the latest news.
