Grosvenor Mobility are taking on the infamous Three Peaks Challenge in a bid to raise money and awareness for Brett Young Gateway, a Dementia Day Service in Halesowen. The challenge will take place on the 29th of June and will involve a 13-strong team gearing up to climb the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales. The mountains they will be tackling are:
- Ben Nevis
- Scaffell Pike
With a dedicated team from Bromsgrove, they firmly believe they will be able to reach the peaks of each mountain – and hopefully make it back down – in order to raise at least £7,000 for Brett Young Gateway.
What Makes Our Challenge Unique?
To add a bit of a twist to the Three Peaks Challenge, both Grosvenor Mobility and AMES Group (another local company they have partnered with) have agreed to spruce up their look – namely in the form of dressing in Peaky Blinders-themed attire! With both companies having ties with Birmingham, what better way to make the challenge a little more interesting?
Within a mere 72 hours, the team will be tackling the three mountains head-on, leaving the perilous Snowdon until the final day. All in all, a total of 26 miles and a colossal ascent of 9,800ft will have been conquered in just three days! – Assuming they all make it back down…
Preparation is Key
Tackling mountains isn’t exactly easy, not in contrast to your standard Sunday walk anyway. That’s why Grosvenor Mobility and AMES Group have undergone some intense training to help prepare them for the heights they aim to reach.
They started slowly, with some short walks every week across different terrains to help them get used to the change in environment and any unforeseen obstacles they may encounter. Each time they completed a walk, they would up the pace and distance to improve their fitness, ensuring they aren’t left with any nasty surprises during their trek up the mountains!
