Charity Snowdonia Mountain Challenge 14-17 June 2012

On 14 June myself (Mark Bygott) and my son Charlie (13), together with 13 other school friends and some parents are undertaking a Snowdonia Mountain Challenge.
The plan is to ascend 8 mountains over 3000ft and walk about 30 miles over 3 days carrying full rucksacks (50lbs) containing all provisions and tents.
Charlie has already undertaken practice walks and is ready and prepared for the challenge. Conversely I, (55) am probably in for a shock, bearing in mind that my usual exercise involves walking the dog or some gentle men's tennis doubles...
The aim of the event is to raise money for Mountain Rescue.  This charity comprises approximately 50 autonomous rescue teams throughout England and Wales made up entirely of volunteers. These highly trained personnel are on call 24hrs a day, 365 days a year whatever the weather, whatever the risk, entirely free of charge.
If you would like to support this cause we would be tremendously grateful for your sponsorship. Any amount, little or large, will help to continue the great work of Mountain Rescue.
Please visit the web link and donate whatever you can.
Thank you so much.
