National Three Peaks Challenge, 27-28 June 2009

April 14, 2009

Artfully AWARE is letting you know about our amazing Team this summer who is about to go on an intense physical challenge to raise money for a very special media project in Uganda.

The Challenge involves the small matter of climbing Britain’s three highest peaks – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – within 24 hours.

What for?

All funds raised will be going towards The Kids League Foundation, a UK registered charity working with sports for development across the whole of Uganda. The Kids League wants to take part in a 10 day educational film-based workshop for a group of their children to help tell the story of what The Kids League does, where they work and who are the children they support. This workshop is being hosted by Artfully AWARE and The Uganda Arts and Media Academy. The final figures of this project have been calculated, and we are hoping to raise the full amount to support The Kids League in the workshop right through to the delivery of their films on the internet.

We have asked all of those taking part to commit to raising at least £250 each for The Kids League.

The Route

All the information you may want to know about the three peaks can be found on this website:

The Challenge will start from Ben Nevis at roughly 5pm on Saturday 27 June, finishing 24 hours later at the foot of Snowdon:

  • Sat 27 June, 5pm Start Ben Nevis

  • 10pm Finish Ben Nevis and drive to Scafell Pike
  • Sun 28 June, 5am Arrive and start climbing Scafell Pike

  • 10am Finish Scafell Pike and drive to Snowdon
  • 1pm Arrive and start climbing Snowdon
  • 5pm Finish Snowdon and complete challenge

We have arranged transport and drivers for the 500 miles of driving between climbs, as travel time is crucial rest-time for those climbing. Participants are arranging their own transport to either Glasgow (where we will do a pick-up) or directly to Ben Nevis, as well as transport home from Snowdon. We are helping arrange accommodation at Snowdon on the Sunday night for those who want to stay and have a well-earned meal and rest before going back to work.

We have already arranged a team of approx 20 people –  please let us know if you would like to help fund our endeavor.
