Robert and Tony Foster would like to thank everyone that has been generous enough to sponsor them in their trek to climb the Yorkshire Three Peaks in under 12 hours. On the weekend of 4th / 5th May 2013 Robert and Tony will be took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for us.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a circular route that starts at Horton-in-Ribbledale climbs the mountains of Pen-y–Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.The route is about 24miles (39kms) in length and involves 5000 feet (1600 metres) of vertical ascent. The target time was to complete the route within 12 hours.
“Hooray!!!!! We’ve done it!!!!Despite atrocious weather conditions we completed in 9 hours 36 minutes. We even had snow at the top of Ingleborough but the worst challenge was the wet and mud making it very challenging to keep upright at times.
However we were kept going by the thought of Hannah’s charity benifiting from your donations and so allowing teenagers going through cancer treatment to enjoy some good times.In addition to the fundraising site our total is increased by further donations offline and we have currently raised at least £1200 with more to come. WE THANK YOU ALL xx”
