Regeneris Completes the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to Raise Money for Maggie’s Cancer Charity
Eight members of the Regeneris team completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge last weekend. This involved a 24-mile hike and included over 1,500 metres of ascent! Some members of the team even managed to complete the walk in under the 12-hour target.
The hike was undertaken to raise money for Regeneris’ Charity of the Year – Maggie’s. Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends. Their centres across The UK provide practical advice, emotional support and places to relax and meet other people in similar circumstances.
The team were lucky to have a glorious Yorkshire day, with clear skies and no rain. After a 7am start, we made good progress up Pen-y-Ghent, although the clouds covered up the lovely view from the top. This was followed by a tiring valley walk to the Ribblehead Viaduct, which never seemed to get any closer. After lunch we had a long climb up Whernside before the team made the final steep accent up to Ingleborough before enjoying the sunset over the Irish Sea from the summit. Then it was a steady descent to the end before having to call the RAC to get us home!
