The Three Peaks Challenge
On Wednesday 18th July Crescent Pharma are planning to undertake the Three Peaks Challenge in a mere 24 hours.
The group are doing their hike in aid of the three charities (one for each peak!). These charities are Project Gambia, Inter Care Medical Aid for Africa and Beta Charitable Trust.
The National Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales in 24 consecutive hours. The total walking distance is 27 miles and each mountain is expected to be completed in up to 5 hours. The total drive time is estimated at around 10 hours +. This means little wiggle room if you want to complete the challenge in time! We have been told that there is no way to complete the challenge in comfort and that we will need to rough it if we want to succeed!
Crescent Pharma are committed to supporting some of the most deprived areas of the world to provide essential needs such as healthcare, medicines and education. The goal is to raise £5,000 with all of the donations going towards the charities.
Please donate and sponsor us on our challenge to raise money for projects in Africa which support basic and essential human needs. Information and links to the websites of the three charities are below:
Project Gambia is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation based in the North of England in the city of Sunderland that aims to improve the quality of life for families and local communities in the Gunjur region of The Gambia, West Africa.
Inter Care Medical Aid for Africa sends high quality medical aid to rural health units in sub-Saharan Africa. The health units supported by Inter Care serve a catchment population of over 10 million and include clinics, hospitals, dispensaries and centres for orphaned and vulnerable children in Ghana, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia.
Beta Charitable Trust works to provide clean water, sanitation, food, medical care and education in some of the most destitute and deprived areas of the world.
