Last month a team from YFM Equity Partners tackled the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in aid of some of our favourite charities.
The circular route scales the three highest peaks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park (Pen-Y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside) and includes 1500m of ascent. The aim of the challenge is to cover the 25 mile hike within 12 hours. The group set out in the dark at 6.30am, with headtorches for the ascent of Pen-Y-Ghent. And, despite the Yorkshire weather and some footwear issues, we are proud to say that all 12 members of the YFM team made it back to Horton in Ribblesdale in the allotted time!
By completing the challenge, the YFM team raised almost £10,000 in sponsorship. This has been donated to a number of local and national charities including MIND, Macmillan, Cancer Research UK and Women’s Aid.
