Challenge yourself and raise cash for breast cancer charity

Whether you’re looking to shape up, take on a new hobby, or simply get yourself into the fresh air this New Year, Breast Cancer Campaign has the answer.

In 2013 you can sign up for the Three Peaks Challenge, an exhilarating hike to the summit of some of the UK’s tallest mountains.

Running from Saturday 12 to Monday 15 July 2013, the Three Peaks Challenge sees participants attempt to scale the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales to help Breast Cancer Campaign continue funding research to beat breast cancer.

Renowned for being one of the toughest challenges in the UK, the Three Peaks is perfect for anyone looking for a new physical test. Participants will hike approximately 24 miles and climb and descend over 10,000 feet in just 24 hours.

It’s a challenge of endurance, adventure and most of all team work, as everyone pulls together to tackle the intense slopes of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon, ascending 3000 metres and sometimes even hiking in the dark.

Supporters need to sign up before April to take part and allow enough time to prepare, train and fundraise for the leading breast cancer charity.

Kelly Walton, Breast Cancer Campaign’s Events Executive, said: “Whether you’ve resolved to get fit, lose weight or be more adventurous in 2013, this could be the perfect challenge to help you achieve your New Year goals. Not only will participants have the experience of a lifetime, they’ll also be helping Breast Cancer Campaign continue funding vital breast cancer research.”
