The guys completed a hilly three hour circuit in teaming rain, but were delighted with their efforts.
Taking the Three Peaks Challenge with Mark and Philip on 14 and 15 September 2012 are members of our Sales, Corporate and Professional Services Teams:
Mark Middleton, Matthew Bunting, Rob Maunder, Kelvin Findlay and Lee Young.
When the team completes the Three Peaks Challenge which takes in Ben Nevis (the highest mountain in Britain), Scafell Pike (in the Lake District) and Snowdon (in Wales), they will have covered 42,000 metres total horizontal distance and 3,000 vertical metres.
Mark Smyth, our Operations Director and Philip Bond, our Sales Director are keen for Vision to give something back to the community and, as well as supporting Trees for Cities, they wanted Vision’s success to help improve the lives of individuals and Teens Unite does this in spades, so come on everyone … DIG DEEP, you can donate simply at www.justgiving.com/visionplc1
We chose to raise money for Teens Unite Fighting Cancer because it is dedicated to improving the lives of young people aged between 13 and 24 with life-limiting illnesses. It is heartbreaking to think that as many as six teenagers a day are diagnosed with cancer in the UK.
Teens Unite aims “to help young people build on their self esteem, self confidence and to reduce the feeling of isolation, realising that others are facing similar challenges.”
We all know someone aged between 13 and 24, we simply couldn’t imagine how we’d feel if they were diagnosed with a life threatening illness. It’s good to know that someone is there to help them through their battle and make their wishes come true.
