3 Peaks Challenge

Do you want to join me in making a difference?

I'm raising money in aid of Alzheimer's in memory of someone very dear to me. My Nan.

In August 2016 she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. From then to August 2019 the deterioration in her was heartbreaking. My Nan lived a very independent and active life despite being over the age of 80! She found the diagnosis extremely hard to accept - as did we all. To see her go from a social butterfly to a confused, scared and vulnerable women needing to move into a residential care home, was one of the most difficult things my family and I had to go through. My Nan would often get anxious and scared wondering where she was which had an impact on us all. Unfortunately she passed August 19th 2019. 

From this negative experience I want to bring out a positive. I want to raise money and awareness of this awful disease to help other families, but also to help the carers who look after individuals with Alzimers everyday. 

So I have signed up to the Three Peak Challenege on September the 12th 2020 in Yorkshire- 3 mountains to climb in 12 hours!
The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. The money I raise completing this will all go to the Alzheimer's Society and my target is £2000! It's a mean feat but I'm up for the challenge! It's nothing compared to what my Nan went through for three years. 

Any donations will be greatly received.
