Following the successful domination of Waves, Mud and Mountains back in March the team at Northern Powerhouse Development wanted to push themselves to the limit with something ever bigger and harder.
On Saturday 14thJuly, the team faced their biggest challenge yet, the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for a fantastic charity, Make-A-Wish UK.
Make-A-Wish are a charity creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. All wishes are varied and special to each individual child whether it is meeting a celebrity or starring in their own films, they make this happen. Make-A-Wish go above and beyond to make the amazing wishes happen for the incredible children who suffer from the daily struggles that come with a critical illness. It truly is, a fantastic charity to support.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks include Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside, Ingleborough and the aim is to complete the challenge within 12 hours. The team began their epic challenge at 6:22am and we are pleased to announce that the team at NPD completed the final peak at 18:13, just under 12 hours.
After a gruelling 12 hours of climbing a 38.6km route which includes 1585m of ascent, we ask that you please give generously in support of Make-A-Wish UK and help NPD make a child’s dream come true. You can donate on our Just Giving page:
