A group of 30 friends who took part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge on Saturday 16th August have raised over £10k (online and offline fundraising) in funds for the Smith-Magenis Syndrome Foundation, a truly fantastic result!
The amazing expedition was organised by Craig Thomas, friend of Matthew Sutton and his family whose eight-year-old daughter Grace has Smith-Magenis Syndrome.
The challenge included Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, and the total walking distance was 39.2km (24.5 miles).
The group experienced many ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ along the way and made a short video about their challenge.
The SMS Foundation would like to say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone involved in organising this event, raising funds and awareness, and of course all the intrepid walkers who took part in the challenge!
If you would still like to support this event you can donate on Craig’s JustGiving page.
