CHALLENGE DATE- 23RD-24TH OCTOBER 2018

In October 2018, a team will be embarking on the Three Peaks Challenge, in aid of SportsAble. The challenge involves climbing the 3 highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland, all within 24 hours. The team members are:

Niall McCaffrey

Daniel Pringle

Matt Mullane

Michael Rowden

Kate Chapman

Joe Salman (driver)

It is important to remember the extremely worthy cause that will be the focus of the team's motivation and fundraising campaign in the build up to the challenge and beyond. The chosen charity for the team of climbers is the locally based Berkshire charity, SportsAble.

SportsAble is a disability sport charity that provides inclusive opportunities for individuals to take part in sport, physical activity, and recreation. They specialise in providing disabled people with opportunities to play, develop new skills, and meet likeminded individuals, resulting in substantial physical, psychological and social benefits through continued participation.

Currently SportsAble offers up to 12 sports for its members to get involved in- whether it is Archery, Air Weapons, Boccia or Wheelchair Basketball- there really is something for everyone. All these activities are heavily subsidised so that cost is not a barrier to those that would like to join the club and try the activities. It costs SportsAble somewhere in the region of £300 000 each year to sustain its current level of service, all without any formal government funding.

The team is raising money as a symbol that nobody should be afraid of pushing themselves. It was JRR Tolkien who once wrote that ''Courage is found in unlikely places'', and we want to be a shining example of what can be achieved when you put your mind to it. Pushing yourself doesn't have to be an extraordinary feat of skill or strength, but rather having the perspective to push yourself outside your comfort zone.

The team are ambitious and passionate about this challenge and the cause so we thank any donations in advance and hope to make everyone connected to the team and the charity proud.
