Team story

[p]Thank you for clicking through and supporting such an amazing charity. Whilst we take on 270 miles in a week, it is nothing to what the many children who are faced with that dreaded Cancer diagnosis face and anything that you can do to help support the amazing hospital and staff is hugely appreciated.[/p][p]Having had our first ever DNF on The 2018 Spine, we are returning to be successful in January 2019 during what is forecast to be the most savage English Winter for 20 years.[/p][p]Given the generosity of friends and family supporting our chosen charities, we weren't going to fund raise, however, having had various offers of charitable support we have 'phoenixed' our fund raising page.[/p][p]The MONTANE® Spine® Race is widely regarded as one of the world’s toughest endurance races. A truly epic challenge that we can now testify tests physical resilience and mental fortitude.[/p][p]Having taken part in warm climate multi-day events, we have now doubled the distance (268 miles non-stop over 7 days) in the middle of the English Winter, self-navigating whilst carrying our own clothes, tents and food for the week. Just to make it a little more difficult we have to climb over 15,000 m, or roughly over 10 climbs up Ben Nevis, in the wind, rain and snow. To illustrate the beauty and the brutality see [url=https://thespinerace.com/]https://thespinerace.com/[/url][/p][p]We have chosen to support the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal that is supporting Bristol Children's Hospital.[/p][p]Barnsey's young 5 year old nephew and family received the news no one wants to hear when almost exactly 2 year's ago they were told he had Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, AML. Since diagnosis Owain has been superbly looked after by the staff at Bristol Children’s Hospital as he has faced the challenges of intensive chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant and long periods in hospital, often in isolation. Whilst we will undoubtedly have some dark times on the Pennines, it will be nothing compared to the trials Owain has faced over the two years and hopefully we can face them with the same smile and courage he has shown throughout his treatment.[/p][p]Any money that you are able to donate will allow these amazing charities continue with their unbelievable work and help many more people in the future. We must stress that we have paid all our own costs and 100% of any money given will be given directly to the charities and used to benefit others.[/p][p]We really appreciate your support and thank you for any donation.[/p][p]Best wishes[/p][p][br][/p][p]Barnsey & Stu[/p][p][br][/p]
