Heart Research UK to hold Three Peaks Challenge
8:00am Wednesday 6th March 2013 in News
Heart Research UK will stage its annual Three Peaks Challenge in Craven on Saturday, June 15.
Last year, despite wet and windy conditions, more than 300 hikers tackled the 25-mile walk and raised more than £30,000.
And Heart Research UK – the “helping hearts” charity – is appealing for even more people to join in this year.
National director Barbara Harpham said: “Completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks is a real challenge and it’s not to be taken lightly.”
Walkers have to tackle the peaks of Penyghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.
There is no entry fee and no minimum sponsorship, so all walkers have to do is raise as much money as possible for Heart Research UK. You can sign up as an individual or as a group.
