My Story

We are a team of people attempting to climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. All over one weekend! This involves over 20 hours of strenuous hiking, and nearly 1000 miles driving in between.

Why are we doing this? Well frankly, we have lost too many good people to this crappy disease. And the stats about cancer in Yorkshire are shocking.

Did you know:
-Yorkshire has the highest mortality rate of cancer in the UK.
-Yorkshire has the third highest rate of cancer incidents (the number of people who get cancer) in the UK.
-The rate of cancer incidents is increasing at a far faster rate than the improvements in survival.

The blunt fact of this is, that if you live in Yorkshire you are more likely to get cancer, and you are more likely to die if you do! This has to change, now!

There is so much money raised for cancer nationwide, but it just isn’t spent here in Yorkshire. Yorkshire Caner Research are changing that, and we want to help them anyway we can. Threw their work and funding YCR have already massively helped reduce the mortality rate in Yorkshire.

This event is being organised by Jennie Gadsby, in honour of her dad Ian– who died in April 2017 after a brave but short battle with Pancreatic Cancer. We will climb our final peak (Snowdon) on 1st October, which would have been his 63rd birthday.

Give what you can, every penny matters. Share, support and help make a difference right here, to the people near you.

With love and hope for a brighter future.

We are a team of 14 average people, attempting to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales. Plus a whole team of further people who will be joining us for one of more climb.

This is no easy task, and the whole team have worked hard getting ready.

We want to help Yorkshire Cancer Research save more Yorkshire lives. Did you know that if you live in Yorkshire you are more likely to get cancer, and more likely to die of cancer than almost anywhere in the UK. It needs to stop. We need to raise more awareness, and provide funding for more research and more support for the people nearest to us.

The team is lead by Jennie, who has organised the event in honour of her dad Ian, who died from pancreatic cancer in April 2017. The team complete the challenge on 1st October 2017 on what would have been Ian's 62nd birthday.

Please give what ever you can to help us reach our target, all donations no matter how small are gratefully received.
