Matt's Mammoth Mountain Challenge

On Saturday 13th August 2016, a group of 40+ family and friends will take part in some or all of the difficult National Three Peaks Challenge, 3 Mountains in 3 countries in  24 hours, in honour and memory of an amazing young man taken far too soon, Matt Riley, much loved son, brother, grandson, boyfriend, friend, nephew, cousin and much more was killed on 13th September last year as the result of a tragic traffic incident while backpacking in Cambodia. Matt had such a promising future ahead of him a very bright, funny, kind, loving and generous young man. Matt had planned to undertake this challenge himself this year in memory of his Grandad and Aunt, raising money for Diabetes UK and Mind. Two very worthy charities.  We aim to complete this challenge in his memory and hope to make it as successful as possible, we will add the charity Cam-kids, a charity for orphan children in Cambodia, to the beneficiaries of this fundraising event, as Matt got great joy from  teaching orphan children to swim while in Cambodia. All proceeds be split equally between the three charities. 
We have been dealt the most devastating blow possible, losing our gorgeous boy who was such a huge part of all of our lives. Focusing on a positive challenge Matt had intended to complete, that will help others in need, will hopefully help us to help others in his memory, this way at least part of him will live on through the  fundraising he has inspired us to take part in and the many people who benefit from that fundraising.
Please help support some very worthy charities and help us to make this event as successful as possible.


below is a very brief description of the charities please see the websites for more information.

Diabetes UK: more and more people are suffering from this life threatening illness, the charity raises money for research, information, advice, practical and emotional support.
