The countdown has begun…. on Saturday 16th June 2018, our Senior Claims Administration Officer, Sally Wendon (pictured right) will begin her day before the sun comes up, as she makes her way to Chapel le Dale in Yorkshire ahead of the mammoth Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, which she is taking on to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society, a charity which is very close to her heart.
Starting at around 6.45am the challenge is to walk/ramble the 24.5 miles, which includes taking on the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough (the highest of which is Whernside at a massive 736 metres) all in under 12 hours. The peaks form part of the Pennine range and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
If you like more information on the Three Peaks Challenge or would like to take part yourself, please visit the Official Three Peaks Website.
In Sally's words: “Planet Earth has no room for Alzheimer's and it's about time we put on our steel-toed walking boots and kicked its butt!
Seeing my beautiful, fun loving, brutally honest(!) Grandma, gradually stripped of her amazing traits by this hideous disease, is something that no individual, or their family, should have to stand and watch - and we will stand for it no more!
Blisters and excessive chaffing are a small price to pay to support such an amazing cause and we would be so grateful if you could fuel us on our journey with a donation (however small!) to help us make a difference in ridding the world of this illness, as in the wise words of my Grandma, 'I don't care for it very much' ".
