Mark's Three Peaks Challenge
Sending a massive congratulations to our e-Commerce and Marketing Manager, Mark Hume, for successfully completing the Three Peaks Challenge. The Three Peaks Challenge is an event in which participants climb the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours. It is frequently used to raise money for charitable organisations. Walkers climb each peak in turn, and are driven from the foot of one mountain to the next. The three peaks are:
• Ben Nevis (1344m or 4409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland
• Scafell Pike (978m or 3209 ft), the highest mountain in England
• Snowdon (1085m or 3560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales
The total distance walked is estimated at 42 kilometres (26 miles) or 44 kilometers (27 miles), with a total ascent of 9,800 feet (3000m). Mark smashed his target to raise £500 for CRY Charity (Cardiac Risk in the Young) and ended up raising £672 plus £126.25 in Gift Aid! Congratulations once again Mark on your achievement and a well done from all your colleagues here at Flowfit!
