An intrepid team from Kennedys Law will be embarking on a 3 Peaks Challenge on 28th June 2019 in aid of Rainbow Trust, their current charity partner.
The team of 22 will be climbing the three highest peaks in the UK- Ben Nevis (1345m), Scarfell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1085m) and are currently in training for what will be a real test of endurance. The team is comprised of staff from 5 of Kennedys UK offices and they are currently over halfway to their fundraising target of £12,600.00.
This isn’t the first summer fundraising challenge that Kennedys have set themselves, having previously undertaken a London to Paris Bike Ride, Dragon Boat Race, cycle relay between offices and a Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge.
Kiah Ashbarry, Trainee Solicitor, Manchester, told us a little about what the challenge means for her:
“I am taking part as my daughter completed the Bitesize Battlefield Challenge last year and raised an impressive amount for Rainbow Trust, so I wanted to do my bit for the charity too. The Three Peaks Challenge is something I have always wanted to complete – I’m a glutton for punishment! I am currently training for the Manchester 10K so I am doing lots of running and I have incorporated the dreaded stair climber into my gym routine. I have even stopped using the lift at work and I now get the stairs!”
Sarah Paterson, HR Business Partner, London, said:
“Not only is this a fantastic cause, but something I have always wanted to do. The physical and mental challenge will all be worth it when the hike is complete. To prepare, I am walking everywhere, watching walking, dreaming about walking and talking about walking!”
You can support Kiah, Sarah and the rest of the wonderful Kennedys 3 Peaks Team in their amazing efforts by donating to their fundraising page at Just Giving.
All of us here at Rainbow Trust wish them luck with the challenge and hope that they enjoy this once in a lifetime experience.
